It’s common to feel the urge to get organized in January– purge closets, cabinets and drawers. Many sewers feel the same way.

15 Minutes to Organize the Ironing Board Area

By Marie Zinno I have a real pet peeve when it comes to ironing; corralling the water spray bottle, starch, pressing cloths, electrical cord and the ironing board itself.

Every time we talk (and that’s every morning), she’s got all three of her machines cranking out holiday orders.  Marie is a commercial embroiderer based in Canton, OH and one very pleasant person.

Many of our students tell me one of the things they love about attending a Stitching Sisters event is they just show up. They don’t need to do any prep work, lug any machines or even bring a piece of stabilizer. They walk in and begin to stitch. Last week, I had the same...
