    I am a longarmer and I agree with this advice! I don't smoke, and I have several customers who bring me quilt tops that reek of smoke. I hang them on a bar in my garage for a week before I take them into my home or studio. I have a sign in my studio that says: Smoke-free, Pet-Hair-free Environment.

    Somewhere I read that you put a bar of dial soap in a plastic with the quilt. I tried it and it worked. Worth a try.

    Could not use someone who smoked again once that happened.

    As an ex-smoker, I agree how horrid it smells. When you smoke, you have no idea how bad you smell. The thought of smoking now turns my stomach. I had to wash all my stash the same as I washed my clothes. Smell came out. Some of the stain didn't on light colored fabric. Cannot be around smokers now. My problem now is I have some nose hairs. UUUGGGG!!!! Gross. LOL
