Truth be told, I’m not a big fan of ironing. One year I gave the honey his own ironing board and iron for Christmas. Yeah. I only iron while sewing. In the past couple of years I have found the beauty of having fabric nice and pressed and ready to be used or sewn. Quilt blocks are not wonky and they are sooo much easier to sew when you iron. I’m learning!
The beauty of the ironing board stations is they can be customized! Don’t restrict yourself to the foldable ironing board. It just won’t cut it in the quilting world.
There are a lot of options for customizing your station. Put the board on top of a shelving unit- you pick one that works awesome for you. Maybe it has wheels on the bottom so you can move it around depending on where you are working. Maybe it has closed cupboards so you can’t see the items you are storing inside. Maybe there are drawers.
Pick a design that fits the look of your room. Start looking at furniture just a bit differently. Use it for a different purpose. You never know what you’ll come up with that works perfectly for you!
