Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

My tip for ironing is not only a good iron, but a great ironing board. My mother still owns a Mary Proctor ironing board and so does my sewing instructor. I always wash the fabric that I buy that needs prewashing (cottons etc) and press them and tag them with a scrap piece of paper that says "washed and ironed" so I don't have to figure it out later. I am making my first paper pieced quilt for my niece for her graduation and would use the iron to finish it. She is a single child, and struggled through college making ends meet (dad owed back child support for college expenses), perservered even though the loss of her 100 yr old great grandmother and closure of her aviation program/needed to transfer to another avaition school. I am making an Aviatrix quilt, the "Amelia" quilt seen on Fons and Porter and in the "Quilty" magazine.

She is an excellent teacher, very clear and precise, but also at a pace that is easy to follow and understand. Great for the beginner to the advanced. Well desired DVDs:). Makes it like she is standing right next to you along the way!
