    Wide ironing boards at Costco

    Don't know if this is a good deal or not, but since I haven't seen these anywhere else around central Texas, thought I'd share this. Costco has a 48" x 18" wide ironing board with storage bar and thick pad and cover for sale at $50. It's going to make ironing yardage a little easier!

    I bought a similar one at Walmart last summer for about the same price. It is well worth the price. What I like the most about it is that there is a iron rest at the end and a storage shelf underneath. I am going to add more padding on it though.

    I got mine at Walmart for $40 a few months ago - I love it - it is very durable (and heavy construction) - very happy with it!! In fact I even throw my smaller rotating cutting board on it if I only need a few small cuts.

    I am going to check that out...I have both nearby...Costco and Walmart...still no fabric at our Walmart but they promise it is coming. I have never seen Walmart fabric since there was not one nearby in NJ and it was already a thing of the past when I moved to Illinois. There is no source of fabric in Yorkville..I can't even find thread without going to Naperville.

    I feel for you about not having a fabric store nearby. When our WalMart closed its fabric dept. I had to travel a ways to get anything and that was sometimes very inconvenient. I am thinking of having hubby make me a board as described above. Our WalMart has reopened the fabric dept. thank goodness, but with much less variety of fabrics.

    Our closest Walmart store has about 200 bolts of various fabrics, hardly any of which can be put in the same quilt. If you buy their quilt of the month fabric you want to buy early, they run out and sometimes don't restock it. Quality is like anywhere else..........check it first for weight and weave.

    I have one of the large ironing boards and love it but now it needs a new cover and padding. I never see them for sale anywhere so going to make my own - any suggestions as to what to use?

    Cotton! Quilting fabric works perfectly and so does home furnishing fabrics, if it's cotton. Cut off the old cover's string and casing and just sew it onto fabric you like! Or if you're really busy (that's Southern for "lazy"!) like me, just put new fabric right on top of the old cover!

    Yes, I've had mine for quite a few years and love it. The only problem is that I haven't been able to find covers for the board so have had to make mine. So when yours wears out, don't throw it away, use it as a pattern for the new one you're going to make. If anyone finds covers, please let me know where.

    My BFF cut a piece of plywood 48"x12" and covered it with batting and teflon fabric from Hancock's. I just put it on top of my old ironing board and it works great.

    Great idea Ashley. I have a lot of cotton drapery fabrics that would be great for an ironing board cover. Gong to do it.

    I looked at the Walmart site online and they have one but it's $259. You must have hit a really good sale!

    Must be a much fancier one Kathleen. I am going to Walmart today and I will look to see if they still have the ironing board like the one I purchased and post the model number.

    And the child's toy by this same company is $80. I can't even imagine paying that for a child's toy ironing board.

    Just got back from my local Walmart. The ironing board is a Canopy brand and $43.99. The SKU is 3596869002, I hope because I had to read it up side down.

    I have had one for years and love it. I find that I can buy the covers at Bed, Bath and Beyond. If you don't have that store you can go to their website ( their name .com) and buy it or go to a linen store maybe. Walmart has one but it is so cheap it's a waste of money. It makes yardage, squares, and clothes easier to iron and makes great counter space! Very sturdy.

    Seaside gal, I may be able to help you. I have one of the Walmart wide ironing boards and the last time I looked they still had the covers with the pads to fit them. I think they were about $15.00 Please contact me. I will check on Monday for availability and price. If there's anyone else who would like one let me know.

    I bought one a few years ago at our local WalMart and it was about that price. They work reallywell for large quilts.
