I have a question, does anyone know (too lazy to try and get a ruler out to check it) how to measure  how much fabric is on a bolt without rolling it out?  

Trying to figure out measurements on my bolts without having to make a big mess lol.

I was always told that 2 full wraps around the bolt was close to a yard. I often use this to estimate if a bolt has the amount I need, and it has usually been pretty close. The thickness of the fabric can change the measurement a little.

I use to work at JoAnn Fabrics a long time ago and we also said 2 full wraps was close to a yard.

Confirming that we did the same thing in the fabric store I worked at.  2 full wraps is close to a yard.
