Burning finger with steam from the iron
Hidee! I just join Gatherings and look forward to the discussions and help I know I’ll get here. I was on Sewing World for a long time and regretted it’s closing. This is the first place I’ve found that is simular in format. I’ve been reading Threads a long time, always ready for the next issue way before it’s release. This is the first time I’ve visited the web site, and I’ll be honest it was in desperation I came. I’ve started my own small business Geewhiz Designs (Gee has been my nickname my whole life so it only seemed natural) Anyway my biggest and first customer is a kennel/grooming business. I’m making different size bandanas that I fold over a sleeve for collars. When I turn under the raw edge I’m burning my finger constantly. When you are only doing this a few times it’s no big deal, but I’m doing this anywhere from 25 to 30 times in a row. OUCH! I’m sitting here typing with one hand because I have a glob of aloe on the finger of my other hand. I seem to remember a notion I read about that protects the finger from the steam but haven’t a clue which issue it was in. Does anyone remember what it was? Thanks so much!
