  • Mat for Ironing Velvet

    From Philip's amazing store of info:



    Velvet Ironing Mat

    Allows you to iron velvet without flattening the pile. Consists of a sheet of fine, nylon needles with a tough cotton backing. Place the velvet face down onto the needles, and iron it on the back. For use with all ironing boards. Size 70 cm x 30 cm (27 1/2 in. x 12 in.).

    Does anyone know where to buy one of these? I tried the Morplan link and couldn't find.

      Try searching for velvet needle board, one of the sewing suppliers should have them, or maybe even Amazon,

        an alternative is to use a piece of the same remnant velvet. Place pile into pile this acts the same as a needle board. we use this method in our work room.
        Give it a try on a scrap if you have some.

          Thank you, I'll give that a go. One other question if you don't mind......plain velvet blind. Nap facing up, like a curtain, or down.

          I'm trying to get my head round the workings at the moment. If it's facing up will it brush the nap the wrong way when it is lowered?

            I would always check with the client on velvet! I generally do the nap facing down on a curtain and blinds but have been caught out before!
