To Iron or Not to Iron
When I was growing up, my chore was to do the family ironing. Tedious, maybe, but I had the whole basement to myself and a TV to keep me company. Today, I rarely touch an iron to my clothes.
But, it’s the most important step in making a garment or a quilt. It’s the difference between having a garment that looks professionally made instead of one that looks homemade. No matter your level of sewing, pressing is THE MOST critical step. Yes, it takes extra time and sometimes I’d like to skip it if I’m in a hurry, but I don’t. I expect to spend about as much time at my ironing board as I do at my sewing machine.
Any brand of iron that gets hot and stays hot will work! Steam is my personal preference.> Add a comment >
