DAY 8- IRONING ESSENTIALS
Today I have three MUST have NEEDFUL THINGS. Yes I capitalized these because just kill me now if I don’t have these in my possession when pressing & steaming. Pressing seams open, pressing wool projects, pressing fusible to wools. Steaming wools to backgrounds
Rowenta Steam Station
THE best Iron ever….hands down… once you use this iron…you are buying one. It doesn’t matter that it is a lot more money than a conventional iron…it is hands down worth it…It will last for years. Most Irons are not meant to be ON 8-12 hours a day…this one is…
Continuous high powered steam makes this steam station ideal for long periods of ironing, like quilting or special projects. It has the patented Microsteam 400 strainless-steel soleplate for perfect steam distribution. The precision tip reaches difficult areas like collars, seams, and around buttons (really? ok if you must iron clothes). Extra large continuous anytime fill water tank holds 33 ounces for up to 1-1/2 hours of continuous ironing. 1800 watts equals fast heat up that is ready in 3 minutes. It also has vertical steam that is ideal for removing wrinkles from hanging garments, drapes and for smoothing and shaping sewing projects. Extra long 6 foot steam cord and extra long 12 foot power cord. No Auto Off (yay…thank God)
Wool Pressing Mats
The newest thing for your ironing needs…these wool mats offer even distribution of steam and releases it back up into our fabric instead of down into your wood ironing/ big board or table. These are nice and thick and make the most beautiful covers for your “big board” ironing station. They come in 20×58, 20×20 and 12 x 12…These mats were made in these sizes for Primitive Gatherings and we are giving you the best pricing right from the start…Our prices are the best there are and we sold out of 100 of them in Houston this year…we eliminated the rounded corners and saved a bunch of money by not having that option. My quilt blocks are square…why round the corners?
The most reasonalbe priced…get the job done.. for pressing your seams open (trust me, not every seam needs to be opened, but we must distribute that bulk)…there are new pressing tools with wool on them ? OK…but it is bulky, pricey and these work just fine…I love the 18″ and the 45″. I don’t think you need one in every size…but if you think you do…go for it…they all are on sale.
Some of the items we are sharing are from previous years…people ask for them to return and there are also lots of new customers who have not seen some the important things that we cannot live without. So that is why you will see multiple things on some days…
I am getting excited as there are some really cool ones coming up!
Eight more days til Christmas…We just arrived home today at 5am…now it’s crunch time to get ready for Christmas…time to start the cookie baking..Are you a baker or a buyer and what is your specialty? Please comment to win a great prize!!! Have a great day….Lisa
