Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

My tip: When pressing over pins, always be sure to use glass head pins. Plastic can melt and harm your fabric and iron. Also, when ironing an embroidered design, turn the design face down on a thick towel. Never iron the embroidery design itself.

I will use the iron in making the following: 3 Christening Gowns I have already designed, a baptism dress for my daughter, an Inverness Cape for my husband, a kilted skirt for myself, and maybe a hat or two if my hubby can find me a good fabric for them.
