DH thinks it's hilarious that I am now shopping for an ironing board. I, who avoided ironing all these years, took up a hobby that requires lots and lots of ironing
I'd picked up an el-cheapo tabletop board when I started my first quilt. Now I need to find a real/full-size one to handle larger projects (especially since I prefer prewashing the fabrics before cutting, so I have yardage that needs ironing). I don't have a dedicated sewing space, so I need the traditional-type board that collapses and can be stored in a closet.
I looked online and reviews of the models currently sold at Target, BB&B, etc. are pretty poor. Even a $100 board at BB&B had complaints of rusting (and fabric staining) after only a few uses.
I realized that all my mentors here on Quilting Board were my best source for input. I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's suggestions! Thanks!
