Pressing Seams

Tips and Techniques

— for quilters and fabric lovers

Pressing seams

When pressing seams, first press flat to "set" your seam. Then use the side of your iron to open it.

Steam distorts your seams, so press with a dry iron. If you must use steam, be sure to let the fabric cool completely before lifting it from your board.

If pressing a item made using fabric texturized with Texture Magic™, please be sure to press from the fabric side.  You do not want to touch the Texture Magic™ with a hot iron as it will make it stiff and hard.
