Quality ironing board cover by
Me again :) I am looking to replace the ironing board cover that came with my ironing board. I bought the board because it was the best construction- but the manufacturer cut corners with the cover. What should I look for to know that it is a good quality? I will not sew one, and I do not want...

Pressing of Cotton/ Spandex Blends by
Hi, I have just received new uniform shirts that I must keep pressed. They are 98% cotton and 2% spandex. I have heard that you shouldn't use starch on this fabric. Would sizing be ok? The care label says to use a warm iron if needed- but that isn't getting the wrinkles out. Any suggestions...

Help with window treatments! by -dlm.

Hello everyone... I'm going to buy my first serger and have a pretty tight budget so I narrowed my choices down to a factory-refurbished Brother 1034D and Singer 14SH654.
