WOOL PRESSING MATno-sew gifts wool pressing mat

This 100% New Zealand Wool Ironing Mat retains heat, so when you iron your fabric it’s like ironing from both sides at the same time! This thick wool pad will keep your fabric stable while ironing to minimize stretching. Projects including yarn and embroidery can be pinned into the wool for easy blocking. The 1/2″ density provides extra protection for any ironing surface.


Often overlooked as no-sew gifts, a good pair of scissors, snips or shears will make any sewist or quilter’s dreams come true! It’s even better if the scissors come with a nice case for gifting.


Nice thread is a great gift, especially if a sewing buddy is always using older spools from her stash. Better yet, gift a thread pack that also comes with a project or pattern! Camping phrases are super cute, done in cross-stitch with Sulky 12 wt. Cotton Petites™!
