Ironing al fresco

What lengths will a sew-a-holic go to when there's a record breaking heat wave?

  1. I think this is a wonderful idea! We have a season place we go to every year with our 28 ft camper and I sew on our deck in the breeze. I even have what I like to cal my 'Camp' sewing machine. It stays there all year round! Iron on!

  2. Nothing wrong with ironing outdoors, as long as you actually enjoy ironing, lol, which I don't. Its a chore. Mind you, ironing quilt patches is something I wouldn't consider work, so thats alright.

  8. I'll sure would go a long way!
    If I don't sew I'll go crazy, and with the heat you have at the moment I think it would be even worse

  9. In the early 60's (in my early teen years) my girlfriend and I were responsible for the ironing in our households. We often set up an ironing station outside and spent our afternoons ironing and tanning! This brought back many great memories! I hope it cools off for you soon.

  12. A quilters got to do what a quilters got to do. That's a great way to beat the heat. we have a visitor here from Victoria BC and she's glad she's not home there in the heat.
