    I have the above Cut'n Press II, size 12x18. Around the middle of the ironing pad, there is a "pleat" or something under the top cloth. I don't use it for measuring or cutting, but I do love it for a small ironing "board" on my table for small pieces. There is a rotary cutting mat on the other side - never used!!!! Keep it that way!!!! I am thinking I want to get that "bulge" out of the ironing side and maybe put a new piece of fabric on it. The original cloth is glued down and the cutting mat is glued on top of that.

    Any ideas would sure help! Thanks a lot in advance. Edie

    Could you try to deconstruct it through a slit along a side edge rather than tearing it completely apart. I don't know of a glue that would hold it together again for the long haul. Honestly if it were me and that little bulge drove me that crazy I'd go get a new one (I have one). They are available at Walmart for $9.99 now. Far less $$ than Hobby Lobby and JoAnns' charge for them.

    If its a recent purchase, I'd return it. Love mine, too and have pinned new cloth over the top quite a few times!

    That's it!!!!!! I don't use the cutting side because it is kind of wonky. It sort of rocks because of the ironing side. I was thinking of using a shish-kabob stick and gently slide it between the top ironing fabric and the mat that is making the bulge that is in/on the ironing side. Does that make sense? Other than the bulge it is in great shape (discolored though it may be). You can definitely feel the bulge when you iron a piece of fabric over it, so it isn't a matter of ironing the bulge flat - it literally has to be flattened out! Thanks again. Edie

    i don't like it, because it really dulls the blades of my rotary cutter..the cutting mat side is rock hard!

    I have had one for years. I knew June Tailor personally and helped her with new ideas. I made my own for taking to classes or to lay beside my sewing machine using a small 9 x 12 cutting board, a padded piece of heavy cotton and glued them together with Super Glue, it has never come apart.
    If yours has a pleat in the top, complain and tell them you want a new one and see what happens. I wouldn't put up with a defective product.

    I recover my ironing side all the time. I don't glue or take the old one off. I cut the fabric about an inch bigger then the ironing surface and use a dressmaker's tracing wheel to run the fabric under the pad over the old fabric top. It works great. The fabric gets dirty or boring, it pull out out and I add another pretty top. You can cut a slit and remove the wrinkle and then add another top over that.

    Walmart is not stocking June Taylor products, it's all Fiskars now so all the June Taylor products are being clearanced out. I bought extra iron/cut pads, Shape Cut rulers and Fussy Cut ruler sets for 75% off. I have my quilting friends/secret pal presents bought for several years!
