    Questions for the shopgirls??

    I have been on MSQC for many months now (9 I think) and I love interacting with the girls from the store. Seeing them on the tutorials...reading their blog posts....but I keep coming up with questions!!! So I thought to myself...

    Self...wouldn't it be cool if we had a thread that we could post our questions directly to the girls and have them answered?? Questions about the store...techniques....whatever tickles your fancy.

    So how about it?? Are the girls at the shop up for a little one on one?? :mrgreen:

    I'll even ask the first question...


    I love the little ironing pad that you keep on your table. Having something small like that seems sensible compared to dragging everything onto the big ironing board.

    So my question is - did you make it? and if so....can you tell us how??

            I've seen her do this! It is quick and easy and yes I still have yet to make my own! I know. Why, oh, why? I don't know! Soon I hope! :roll:
            To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.

              That little board will make you hate your regular ironing board. Seriously.

                    Wow! Thanks for the great tutorial! I wonder if I can resurface my ironing board with that stuff? I don't have enough space on my cutting table to have the iron & board up there. I bet a piece of elastic sewn into the side seams would keep the new top on the old ironing board frame. Hmmmm. I may give it a try, or I may just cave in and buy a new ironing board all together. I will have to see which is more cost efficient.

                        I just resurfaced my ironing board because I can't find another one with the same style of legs a my current one. I really like the sturdy legs on my current board. :? Ummmm...... Its actually made out of metal, but still called an ironing board. I guess ironing metal sounds kinda funny. Sounds like and award or something. Heck, anyone that can iron well deserves a medal.

                        :idea: Anyway, back to the subject, I used "Warm & Natural Needled Cotton" batting to replace that awful foam that was on it and a high quality 100% cotton muslin as the actual cover. I stitched a pocket around the muslin and threw in a 100% cotton drawstring. I was able to purchase the batting and the muslin in wide enough widths to only have to buy a short length of them and have a wonderful seamless finished product. I love the feel of cotton and now it is all cotton. I am allergic to latex and I try to stay away from elastic. I was pleased with the results and it is working wonderful so far. My sleeve board is next to get a new cover.

                          I am glad to hear that your resurfacing work went well. It is an encouragement for me to fix mine.
                          The foamie stuff had finally given it up and I am pretty sure I am only a thin layer of cotton canvas away from ironing on expanded steel. now, this may sound bad, and it is for the most part. It did come in handy when I had a bunch of thick points on the seams. If I put the thick parts of the block in the dimples made by the expanded steel, I could get the block to iron out properly. I know the batting will ease the bumpy points some, so I hope that it will lie flat for quilting. This is just another one of those "get to it" projects.

                            Hello from Melbourne Australia. I have been a member for a month or so. I was wondering how often is the MSQC "Quilt Shop" update there stock, especially the Bargin Bin and Shop Samples section. Is it seasonal, eg Winter, Spring etc or is it once a month on a certain date. I have tried to find this answer on the forum. I don"t know if it exists and/or if its even been asked before. Thank you for taking the time to read my question and hopefully you may be able to point me in the right direction. Take care Don na-Lea.
