OH MY WORD ( update)......WE have one to giveaway...Yes an Italian Model 2 in 1 ironing board! FOR YOU!

Recently, ok, Friday, Charlotte approached me with a query about what are the BEST IRONING Boards to purchase.

Since I absolutely love to iron, I have a couple table top ironing boards for my sewing studio ( custom made)  but when I want to iron quilts, linens, the big stuff, I bring out the BIG STUFF....This one hands down is my favourite ironing board that I have ever owned...

Attention: Just heard from RELIABLE, they are soooooo reliable time and time again....They want to give one of you ....this ironing board... not the comic one...the one below that...



update ....who knew? That so many of you really do not have a RELIABLE ironing board that you can count on...I have laughed and chuckled quite a bit at your comments...Keep them coming, it makes for such entertaining reading and BTW there are quite a few of you who are a no reply blogger, we cannot include you in our draw next Monday if we cannot locate you...I will notes for you in the comments....GOOD LUCK to all of you, we will choose a winner through Random Generator! 



Yep that is me ironing with a smile on my face....lol
 If you would like to stitch her up, be my guest...




It is called the C60 and it is made by RELIABLE the same people
who makes our wonderful Reliable irons that we give out pretty often  around here...
look at the tray below...I put all of the stuff I am going to iron there..
The end piece metal part is a great place to put down your iron...won't burn there either...
special cushioned knobs ....I know all these technical terms....

It is  made in ITALY...they make very sturdy ironing boards, let me tell you...

Buy it once, buy the best! 

Value $259.00 free shipping to YOU!






Why I like this is because I can have a squared off end or your standing pointed end..
99% of the time I have the squared off end attached, which just slides onto the pointed end..
With me?....It also has 2 covers depending which one I want to use...

It is sturdy it never wobbles, in fact it weighs so much a small child would have to run into
it at 50 miles an hour to have it crash on the floor...Of course that may be a wee
bit of an exaggeration, the crashing part ...wink...I think you get the picture..

In the past I had purchased sooooo many ironing boards which often lasted
me but a year or two....reminder here, I iron something almost every darn day
except for Sunday....I give my iron and board a rest ...lol

I have had old fashioned wooden ones, they just warped....
I bought the ones I could get at SEARS for $50.00 they lasted maybe 2 years...
I bought ones that were under $20.00. I was lucky to get it home without
a screw loose...

UNTIL this one....I have had it now for over 2 years....and I think it will last
me and my children's children a lifetime...in fact I noted an X on it the other day..
Around here an X means someone in the family wants it when I expire....

So what IRONING board have you come across
 that you cannot live without...?
How sturdy is it...who makes it....?
Can you leave your iron on it without burning...?
What do you want in an ironing board?

 ( winner announced next MONDAY)
followers will be in to win!

OHHHHHH over here...I can...see the black part of my cover....it is some type of 
material that will not burn....

I will have to say this board comes with a nice price tag...but when YOU consider
it will never ever see a dump site....It is a wise investment....

So tell us , Charlotte needs to hear from YOU?

  1. My ironing board is very wobbly but I can't justify a new one as I only use it for my patchwork. When I splurged and bought a new iron (my first brand new one ever) a couple of years ago, my husband wanted to know why I needed one! I'm looking forward to the Stitch Me Up hop.

  2. My ironing board is an old Suzy branded one, made of solid steel in NZ with a fibre-cement heat resistant end (probably asbestos). Best ironing board ever, good and solid and a good size for garment use. I might have to make a board to put on it for quilting at a later point.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I really need to say this. I don't know the brand of the ironing board I use for my quilting. But we've had it for over 25 years, probably closer to 30. I remember my mum ironing on this when I was a kid - in fact, I don't ever remember her using any other ironing board.

    It has a metal mesh top with a felted (like industrial felted) padding that goes under the ironing cover (which has been replaced many times seeing as I'm a ditz and constantly burn it...and the fabric I'm ironing), and a metal frame. It's not terribly sturdy, but my sisters and I were taught to be careful around it.

    Yeah, it's old. I don't know how long it's been in the family but at least 25 years.

    They don't make 'em like they used to!

  4. DH recently built an ironing station for me. I will never again use an ironing board that is shaped to iron shirts and blouses (who does that anymore?) to iron yardage or quilt tops. I documented the process on my blog. I love this ironing station.

    It is very sturdy, yet I can easily glide it out of the way when I (or DH) vacuums up dust bunnies. The shelves now hold my boxes of charm squares and my small design boards that I use to keep my block pieces organized. Stop by and check it out.

  5. I don't remember where I got my ironing board, likely some big box store, but I've had it a really, really long time so it is probably better made than the cheaper ones sold now. Other than needing a new cover every so often, it has worked well for me. I do want to enlarge the top so soon I'll be asking hubby to make me one of those extensions I've seen on other blogs. Bigger definitely will be better.

  6. I got my ironing board 27 plus years ago when I was first married.... It's the best ironing board ever. It wasn't an expensive one. I buy it a new cover every few years. Happy quilting everyone :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I got my old trusty at Walmart... It is pretty sturdy and has the bigger ironing surface. Not sure of the brand but it has the shelf underneath and has the iron caddy to the side. Wish I had an extension like that though. I have also been toying with the possibility of having our cousin build me an ironing station. But I don't have very much floor space left in my sewing room. I have a 60" round table for when my sewing buddies come for a fun day. and then there are the many tables that hold my stuff... and my sewing cabinet that takes up a bunch of floor space..and my cutting table.. and my bookshelf... and.... well, you get the picture. lol

  8. After many, many years of dealing with a flimsy ironing board I finally found a great one at Target. I then invested in a Big Board which I'd never give up! Looking forward to the next blog hop, can' wait to see all the projects.

  9. Mine is a 2' x 4' sheet of plywood from the local lumber yard. I rounded off the edges put a few layers of batting on it, and then the silver ironing board cover from our local JoAnns fabric store. The first cover I made a draw string, but have since found that duct tape works much better and makes replacing it a breeze. My board sits on the end of my 12' sewing table so I don't have anything to trip over. Under my board is a build in light box for when I need it! All the bells and whistles in one place! :-)

  10. My mom used her old wood ironing board for as long as I can remember, and I'm post-Medicare age, lol! Mine, well it's a Walmart special, metal with the 'grate' top, plain Jane, and I've recovered it a couple of times. And yes, I do still iron hubby's shirts except the old ones he wears while gardening, cutting wood, etc. Also picked up a small tabletop "quilter's ironing board" with the 4 inch legs at a yard sale a couple years back, and just made a new cover and added a layer of cotton batting to cushion the top which is a pressboard material (I think). My irons are both about 20 years old too.

  11. I've had my ironing board for at least 34 years! My son, the woodworker, is going to make me a Big Board top as soon as I give him the measurements. (I've just redone my sewing rooms.) I also have a couple of table top boards. I've looked at the Reliable Board but can't justify it when mine is still working fine! ~Jeanne

  12. I have just a regular ironing board. I would love to have one that is over sized to iron fabric and quilts on. Maybe someday! I just finished reading "Wild Goose Chase Christmas" by Jennifer AlLee. It is one of the series "Quilts of Love". I love books that include a quilt theme.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The ironing board I received as a wedding shower gift lasted me for over 10 years, but the ones I've bought recently don't seem to last as long. The latest one is from Target and I went all out and spent about $35 on it. Yours looks NICE!

  14. My last post was partially about building a top for my ironing board using Christine's tutorial, (Quilt Monster in my Closet). I've had it a week and OMG, I wish I had done it sooner. I think the seams on my blocks lay flatter ! But really, who wouldn't love to have a C60. Congrats to the other LuCkY winners of the ND hop !

  15. Congratulations to the winners! I don't use an ironing board but have a covered board that I take off and on the cutting/pressing table. My old board resides at our guild meeting place though I do have a short one just in case I have to (er, husband has to) iron a shirt and the table board won't do. I'm retired, don't have to dress up, but rarely.

  16. I have never purchased an ironing board--our minister's wife gave me her old one when she got a new one 40 years ago. I use if fairly often, but it is difficult to take down. I also love the squared-off end for quilt projects. I have an Oliso iron, so it raises up when I am not using it.

    Congratulations to the winners from the blog hop! Looking forward to the next one!

  17. I have never purchased an ironing board but I do have 3 wooden ironing boards that I use constantly.
    1. Was created for sleeves and was handmade by relatives and is over 100 years old.
    2. Is a small 'foldable' wooden ironing board stands just over 3 feet tall...it is old and feeble, yet, the stories it could tell if it had a voice!
    3. The 'big' wooden ironing board I rescued from the side of the road in a trash heap. Sturdy, tall and great for ironing clothes and long runs of seams. My only complaint with this board is that the top is not wide and when pressing seams and fabrics...there is a bit of adjusting that takes place.

    I am smitten with the design of this New ironing Board by Reliable... I love the shelf underneath and the designated 'parking place' for my iron!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Right now am using an ironing pad on the floor of my sewing room- my cheap ten dollar WalMart ironing board lasted a year and I keep forgetting to pick up a new one. Sitting on the floor ironing isn't good for my back but at least I can get my quilt related ironing done quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  19. My ironing board is an old piece of junk and needed to be replaced a LONG time ago. I would love an ironing board that doesn't wobble and has a separate place for my iron. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a new one.

  20. I have been dreaming...quietly...of replacing my ironing board...with one that doesn't have the pointy end so I can iron freshly washed new yardage more efficiently! The current metal one from the "W" store is scary! It goes "wobblety-wobblety, clickety-rickity" everytime I walk past it. My sweet little dog cringes & runs for cover as my iron starts rocking and swaying and hanging on for dear life as I dive in to rescue it (and my sweet baby girl)from certain death!
    Thank you for sharing about this lovely luxery model!

  21. Oh, that looks like a fabulous ironing board! I currently have two. One is a custom built one my husband made over a bookcase he made that flanks my sewing area. The great thing is that it is big and square always ready...the downside is that it becomes a convenient counter-top for all my quilting bits and pieces! Also, I can't leave the iron down on it without it burning. My other one is the creaky, metal kind that squeals in protest when I open or close it! pbstrand@msn.com

  22. Wow I did not know there was such an ironing board, awesome. I use a piece of plywood covered with a layer of batting and muslin on my cutting table. Great ironing board! Please add me to the draw..

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh Gosh I don't know my ironing board was handed down from gram to mom to me...a thousand years ago. I do love this one though and if I don't win I just might have to make a larger one of my own now!! Now that you mention it I could use more ironing space. I don't love to iron but I do like the results when I do iron.

    I hope I win this beautiful board. Would fit in my sewing room perfectly.

    thanks cathy

  24. I also love to iron. I am strange I know but I find it a peaceful activity. It never gets packed away. I have had my board for 30 + years but go through covers at an alarming rate. I love the extra's on the new style you are featuring.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My ironing board is 35 years old. It's a little wobbly on carpet and has been re-covered a few times but gets the job done. I love the feature of a squared off end, so helpful when pressing yardage. C60 would be welcome in my sewing room.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am presently using the one that was my mother-in-laws. It is green and I have no idea how old it is. The one I was using which is leaned up against the wall is now warped too bad to stand up straight anymore. It was given to me by my daughter in SIL for mother's day one year. I really need a new one and would love to have one with a square end. Congratulations to the winners!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, I don't know what brand of ironing board I have, but I've had it about 10 years, I think? One of the rubber feet covers falls off all the time (it's a replacement for the original), and scuffs my wood floor every now and again if I'm not really careful. I really need a new one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have 3 ironing boards at the moment, none that I couldn't live without. What I want out of an ironing board is the surface area to be LARGER, to fit uncut fabric/quilt tops better. I also want it to not 'rock' as mine do. I'd also like a 'taller' ironing board, since I'm taller. My back gets tired, bending over, even tho the board is raised to it's highest height. I'd love to try this one out. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have a "Big Board" perched atop my old (small) kitchen table, with bed-risers to bring it up to the correct height. It works great for pressing quilt projects and fabric, but I really need a "pointy end" ironing board for the occasional garment pressing! I can't imagine an ironing board on which one could leave a hot iron -- this, I've gotta see!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My ironing board wobbles, not large enough to iron large pieces of fabric, so I'd love to win one of these boards. Thanks for the chance.

  31. I built my ironing board. I used a kitchen island style of cart roughly 32 x 32. It is divided With a door and 3 drawers on the left. The cabinet with the door holds my gallon of best press and a spare iron. The other side has a series of 6 drawers that hold sharp things ( cutting blades, scissors, ect), sticky things ( glues, masking tape, super glue ect…) , Measuring things ( tape measures, extra rulers ect) travel irons , .
    I made the top 60 x 24 and padded it and covered with the silver ironing board fabric…. I made it so I can lift it off and easily move by ironing cabinet when I need to clear the floor

  35. I have an ironing board that I've used for years. The legs are Harvest Gold, which may give you a hint how old it is. I do not iron every day so it doesn't get the workout yours does. That said ... I've wanted a board with the squared ends for my quilting. It would make life so much easier, along with the iron holder off the one end. I'm drooling over this wonderful ironing board. I know whoever wins will LOVE it!

  36. My ironing board legs are avocado green and would match BJ Elder's harvest gold board. :) I would love to iron on something from this century. Thanks so much for the chance to win such a fabulous product!!!

  37. I have the ironing board that was given as a wedding present to me and hubby 19 years ago...it is still mostly sturdy, suppose that may be because I, unlike you, am not much of a fan of ironing!! I have looked at the big boards with interest but have settled for a small board next to my machine that I made with the help of a youtube video...it was one of my more popular blog posts when I linked to the video. There is certainly a lot of interest in achieving the right surface :) What a generous sponsor, I'm sure the winner will well appreciate it :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. My ironing board is pretty ancient...about 30 years old at least. It's a horrible green color, wobbly, and the legs are so bent it tilts backwards and won't close completely. Most of the time I just lay a towel on my kitchen counter and iron on that. Sure would love to have a new one!

  40. Obviously I have not found an ironing board I like yet seeing as how I own 3 of them... I hate the fact that they point... fine when you are doing clothes but really sucks when it comes to quilt tops & the fact they are so unsteady and not much room for you to actually iron on. I NEED a sturdy, squared ironing board.. thanks so much for a chance at winning this one. If I win I promise it will be put to good use.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That looks like an awesome board. I am using an old wooden one from my grandmothers because it is so sturdy, but I think the women were much shorter back then. I love the blunt end on that board - much more useful these days for quilting.

  44. I am using an ironing board that I got from my great aunt in Alaska - I swear it is made of steel and weighs 40 lbs. I love the sturdiness of it, but if I could get a squared off end and an iron station like the one above I would love it. I really like the idea of the cord hanger to keep the cord out of the way when you are ironing. My mother taught me to iron at an early age (starting off with a mangle at the age of six) because she hated to iron. I had 4 brothers and we ironed shirts and even jeans - I still enjoy ironing shirts, nothing better than a crisp white shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  45. That ironing board looks like an absolute treasure! My ironing boards never last. The current one is wobbly as can be, and I just know that one of these days it's going to collapse as I'm pressing something!

  48. That ironing board looks so nice and it looks like it wouldn't weigh a ton either when I would have to move it. I am looking forward to the stitching hop. I have recently been doing more embroidery. It is great to bring along to my stitching groups when we are not bringing our machines. Can't wait.

  50. I have an old wooden ironing board with collapsing collapsible legs. I keep it on my window seat. It is about half the size of a regular ironing board. Although I love how little room it takes up and I use it all the time, I sure could use a regular ironing board. Especially one I didn't ever have to replace!

  51. I have an collapsing metal ironing board for everyday ironing, these people in my house do not know how to treat any thing good. For my quilting room I have a combination of a ironing board with 3 storge draws, which is fine for small project, put need something bigger for pressing quilts. Congradulations to the winners of the blog hop.

  52. I can see that there are a number of people who have the standard but wobbly ironing boards just like mine! It isn't fancy and sometimes it can be frustrating to iron a larger piece, but I never thought to invest in something better! Winning the one featured for the giveaway would be great!!

  56. I can not say that I love my ironing board it is a cheaper one and wobbles / leans to one side . I use a big board on top of it, to have a larger pressing surface. I also use a Steady Betty when pressing blocks. It has a textured surface that grips your fabric as you press.
    Sure would love to win a new one.

  62. What an awesome looking ironing board! I love the square end and the place to park your iron. Reliable must have invented it just for quilters! My board is avocado green-does that give you a hint as to its age? Yep, a wedding gift. The legs are starting to rust. But hey, it has lasted longer than a lot of marriages! Would love to replace mine. The ironing board, not the hubby LOL

  63. My ironing board is NOT my favorite. Mine is a cheep-o that I have had for about 25 years. The one I wanted my mom got rid of. BooooI would LOVE a new one. Thanks.

  64. I can honestly say I've never had an ironing board I wouldn't give away in a heartbeat! Mine is about 20 years old and 'it will do until the next one'. I'm loving that giveaway! That looks like the ultimate ironing board. Wish we could all win one!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well, I don't see a brand name on my ironing board. I would guess that it's 30 years old... or more. I'm not a happy "ironer" like you, so it doesn't get much use. For quilting, I just use a portable ironing pad on top of my cutting table. It's just fine for small projects. I would, however, LOVE to have an ironing board with the square end on it. When I do drag out my ironing board to iron yardages of fabric or a completed quilt top, it's quite the hassle to shift the fabric around to get it all ironed. Wrestling with the narrow end doesn't make me like ironing any more than I already do! The giveaway board looks like it could put a smile on my face, even when I'm ironing! Thanks for the chance to win one and thanks to the great sponsor, Reliable!

    ReplyDelete
  66. My ironing board is from Wal-Mart and it is bigger than the average (more width). It has the metal iron holder on the end which I love. I don't have to worry about the iron tipping over or burning something. But it isn't big enough and it isn't square at both ends for ironing big items like tablecloths, fabric and quilt tops. I'd make a bigger one, but I have nowhere in this room to put it. I like the extra square end on this Reliable board. Thanks for the giveaway.

  68. My ironing board is cheap and old BUT my lovely husband made a board and covered it with ironing board material and several layers of muslin. When the muslin starts to look icky from starch and heat I can remove a layer. The board is a large rectangle that sits on top of my old ironing board, perfect for large pieces of fabric or lots of little pieces. Only problem is my old ironing board is not all that sturdy. I can't leave it up and it is a bit of a pain to set up and put away. I only use it when I have lots to do or large pieces. But it does work great when I need it!

  69. It's funny I hate to iron except if it has to do with quilting. Then I can iron all day . I don't know what kind of board I have , I've had it so long. But they made things to last in the old days. Not that I'm old.....just saying. Thanks for the chance to win.

  71. I just had to put felt on the bottom of mine because its wobbliness is scratching up my wood floor.

  72. My ironing board is really old and I would trade it in real quick for something bigger like the one you are giving away. thanks for a chance.

  73. I still have the ironing board I bought as a newlywed, and that was 27 years ago! It never was a great board by any means but it still works for the most part. It's kinda warpy, not very stable, and it definitely isn't big enough but it's better than putting a layer of towels on the counter and hoping that the formica doesn't bubble. Thanks for the chance at a new board -- I just got an Oliso iron and I think it wants a nice place to play. :)

  74. Can't say if I love or hate my ironing board! It is wider then most, has a shelf and a iron holder. Height is adjustable. Years ago I had one that had knobs underneath where you could make the pointy end square. The C60 looks like it has all my must haves! Thank you and Relivable for the fantastic giveaway. Congratulations to all the Nancy Drew winners, you were all winners in my eyes.

  75. You read my mind! I was just ironing (quilting, not clothes :) and thinking the padding is shot and the pointy end is annoying: I need a new ironing board. It would be wonderful to win your ironing board. Thanks for the chance!!!

    1. Wow, just read all the above comments. Seems so many of us are just making do with what we have now. No wonder Madam Samm loves to iron with a board like that.

  77. I definitely need a new ironing board! I purchased it at a household auction before I went to college...which was a LONG time ago. (Fall of 1969-that was before perm.press and we had to iron our clothes!) It does have adjustable height. I agree with other comments that a rectangular board would be more convenient for quilting! I especially like the feature holding the cord of the iron and a place for the iron to rest.

    Extra note..I am a Special Education teacher. One of the assessment I need to give students has a picture recognition test for vocabulary. One of the pictures is an ironing board. I have received various names and descriptions for it. The prize was a student who commented, "I have never seen one of those in my life!"

  79. I used to love ironing, not so much anymore. I'm not in love with either my iron or ironing board. I picked up my board at a garage sale. You get what you pay for. My mom traded in Franciscan dinnerware when she got engaged (over 55 years ago!) for an ironing board that weighs a ton and still uses to this day. If I didn't live 3000 miles from her, I'd put that sucker on my inheritance list! Can you imagine taking that on the plane as my carry-on?

  80. The ironing board I use is the one that I learned to iron pillow cases on probably 60 years ago. Under the covers on it now are still the old sheets my Mother used to cover it with all those years ago. I would never never get rid of it but it sure would be nice to have a new huge one that would make it sooooooooo much easier to iron pieced tops on. Great give away. Patti

  83. You are so funny I love the eXpire story, I was so excited to buy my first ironing board from IKEA last month it was half off so only 3euros (a little table top board) but my daughter thought it was cute too and she sat on it and broke the legs, boohoo, it still works it just doesn't stand the 4 inches off of the table, lol.

  85. I mostly iron my quilt stuff on a rectangular sewing table that i padded and covered. If I need to iron something big I haul out an ironing board my mom gave me forty years ago(it needs a new cover desperately). I would love a large rectangular board. It would make things so much easier! Thanks for the chance on your wonderful giveaway.

  86. I have a Target ironing board that I tried to make better with a nicer cover, but it's not nearly as nice as the one you have. I cannot leave my iron on the ironing board I currently have unless I want to start a fire (which I most certainly do not). I would love an ironing board with a squared instead of pointy end because I don't iron anything except quilting items any more. I have a really nice iron and having a really nice ironing board to go with it would be so very nice indeed. Thank you for the giveaway.

  91. I've had my present (and only the second) ironing board for about 20 yrs. I bought it at Target. It looks very similar to the one you are showing. I know that I could not have paid more that $30 at the time. I immediately took off the lower rack. Because of my back issues, I often sit to press. The rack got in the way. I also use a June Tailor board cover, which has a grid, circle and a measurement down the center (for the length) of the board. I had a home-based business for many years and having the JT cover helped me measure fabric, lace, block smocking and so much more. I have a top of the line Rowenta Professional iron, which I love AND a table top presser (don't remember the brand), which gives me a variety of pressing options.

  103. My ironing board is about 40 years old. That's how long I've been out on my own. Of course it is beautiful harvest gold from the 1970s. My mother's must be about 60 years old. How do you ever justify getting rid of one? Win a new one and then pass the old one on. Thanks.

  104. Oh boy, I have an old ironing board as well. I'm not even sure how old it is as I can't remember when I bought it. It is not the sturdiest, bent legs and wobbles abit. I wish my board was bigger. What a great giveaway! Sadly an ironing board doesn't get to the top of the priority list with all the other things that come up.

    Tee hee - I just went to IKEA to get it a new cover - just to make it look nicer...trying to play psychological mind games with myself...hmm..might be working...

  110. What a delightful post! I've never heard anyone so eloquently describe an ironing board. Leave it to Madam Samm :). I have never loved any of my ironing boards. Some have been wobbly, some won't shut, and some have flimsy covers. What I would love in an ironing board is something that has none of those characteristics. Thanks for introducing us to this fantastic ironing board!

    ReplyDelete
  111. This board needs someone who will truly cherish it, so please pick me. My love of ironing is legendary among family and friends. I am on my third steam press in 25 years and it is a permanent fixture on the counter in my sewing room (aka spare bedroom, when needed). Guests have been known to take a turn on the press or the regular iron and board across the room. On the wall is the current "Extreme Ironing" calender which is an annual gift from the kids (not mine!). I have endured decades of ribbing from all because I literally iron almost everything; I do stop at the underpants. My spouse finally stopped complaining about the creases in his casual T-shirts and now lines them up on the counter. I would give this board a good home and promise to spend quality time with it. I need this board because the spouse won't let me get the Mangler. Pick me, Pick me. Pick me, Pick me, Pick me!

  112. Congrats to the winners of the Nancy Drew blog hop!! OMG...I would be smiling if a Reliable ironing board found it's way to my sewing room. It would be super sweet to have an ironing board that didn't wobble. Mine is only 2 years old, it is a mid priced one, not the cheapest you could buy and I had to replace the cover before it had it's first birthday. I luv my little wooden ironing board that hangs on the wall but it is only good for pressing blocks...I'm off to dream of a C60!! Thanks Mdm Samm and Mr. Reliable for the chance to win such an awesome ironing board.

  113. Oh my! I could REALLY use a new ironing board! I just want one that doesn't threaten to collapse when I use it, like mine sporadically does. I bought mine about 25 years ago at a place that sold damaged goods (maybe the box smelled of smoke, etc.). It's served me all these years, but the rubber feet have gotten lost, and the nut that keeps the pin in place has disappeared, too!

  114. I was just this weekend thinking about how I need a new ironing board -- bigger, more sturdy -- and this one sounds like what I need! I have not found one yet that I cannot live without; maybe this is the one.

  115. I have the ironing board we purchased shortly after we were married (just had to replace my iron from that same time last year). I've been married 34 years this year. It's a good iron and has made it through multiple moves, many knock overs, and several ironing board covers. I would really love to have a large one but with retirement I don't see it happening anytime soon. Thank you Madam Samm & Reliable for this opportunity.

  117. I am currently using a handmade wooden ironing board that I believe is called something like a Ben Franklin ironing board. It converts from an ironing board to a step stool to a little seat. I purchased one of those "wonder" covers, and so it has actually served me very well. My biggest complaint is that is is small. I would love to have a larger surface to iron on, but in general it has worked well. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

  127. Well I love to iron and allways iron my laundry ever morning after washing and drying prior to putting it away...I hate my ironing board. But I use what I have and what I can afford. It is the 2nd one I have owned (typical Wal Mart brand) in the 24 years I hgave been married. First one got destroyed in a millitary move. I do wish it was a lot bigger and better. I especailly wish it was every time I go to iron fabrics. I love the area for the iron to sit. And to be able to have 2 ends the same size instead of the pointy end. That is like heaven itself for ironing fabric & linens. If My Boy would that be useful. I would love to own one of these boards for sure. I love your blog and I love your hops and I follow along happily ever since I discovred it. My genre in reading is mostly supernatural and historical romance.

  134. When my grandma passed away 40 years ago, I took possession of her ironing board. It was old then. I'm guessing that it was new in the 1930's. I love this old ironing board! It is VERY sturdy. The problem is that it weighs a ton, so it is difficult to move it from the laundry room to the sewing room. My aching back would appreciate having a Reliable ironing board permanently located in the sewing room.

  137. What an awesome ironing board. If I had to guess, I would say my ironing board is 20 plus years old. Probably bought it at Target or Walmart. It's pretty steady if I keep track of the rubber feet on it, they do like to fall of every time I open or close it.

  138. My ironing board is older than 19 years because it was my hub's before we got married. It's quite wobbly but is better than not having one I suppose. I haven't invested in a nice one, but this one looks like it would be great. It would amazing to have one with the squared off end!

  141. Rosemary B here: I love your cartoon ironing board
    I have an ironing board that I have had since bc (before children) it is a nice board and I love it... but then I am un"reliable" and deprived as I have never seen a board like this.

    I have a really nifty set up. I reach OVER my board to get my pretty cheap terrible iron that is situated on my cutting table... and I have the burn scars to prove it, they are healing nicely.
    Neosporin helps.

    I am home today, must do food gathering. Yesterday my mom told my dad specific and very detailed instructions on how to prepare the steak dinner, with potatoes (must start those first) etc etc.
    It was riveting and I wish I had recorded it. My mom is doing well. Oh the roller coaster... and the doc blames her outburst Monday on the Versed, as she had been woken and moved to surgery very early, which annoyed her. we also sang some silly popular old songs from the dark ages that might be considered racist today :-/

  149. I have 2 ironing boards. One that drops out of a cupboard behind my sewing machine, I use it most often. I have just recently made a new cover and unfortunately I only put one layer of the batting made for hot pads under and the grid of the board has started to show on my fabric when I press with too much steam. Must correct that. The other is an old wooden board that I really have loved for quite a while and when I recovered it recently found so many layers to peel off from so many previous owners that it turned into a really big job. I blogged about it here:

I would love to win this one, then I could set it up at the other end of my living room / sewing room... Thanks for the opportunity.

  159. OK - you won't believe this, but I am still ironing with a board my parents gave to me my second year in college in 1969 (no brand name on it)! It's even olive green (as is my space age blender from the same era given to me on my 21st birthday)! Anyway, I have tried other boards over the years, but this one has always been my favorite - it's sturdy and it makes me happy - EXCEPT - it doesn't have that square end that I would SO love to have for my quilting! I never worry about my ironing burning it because I have an Oliso with the little feet that come up when you release the handle, but it sure would be nice to have that pad at the end which would give me more space to press larger pieces of fabric! Thanks for a chance to win this wonderful ironing board!
    Cheers!

  160. I have a very wobbly ironing board that I got at a thrift store. I also have an old 5' table that I covered in batting and the silver Ironing board cover. I'd love to have this one! Thanks for the chance to WIN!

  161. I have several ironing boards. The one I am using today is one of the old pointy ones that is maybe 5 years old. I had to buy it because someone broke it one day when trying to fold it up. This one is not very sturdy and you have to be careful when ironing, I have had a couple of times that large pieces of fabric have actually caught on the handle to collapse it and it collapsed in the middle of ironing. I have a small table top ironing board that I use if I want it near where I am piecing. My absolute favorite is the one I found in my husband's attic. It is heavy, has 4 legs and does not move. My DH retro fitted it with a board he found which was 20 X 48 so I have a beautiful huge flat board to iron my quilts on.

  162. I have a nice wide ironing board from our local department store. I'd love to interchangeable end though - what a great idea!

  163. I purchased my ironing board from Walmart. It's held up quite well, considering all the kids and grandkids around here, all the sweaters that get laid out to dry on it, etc. While I don't iron clothes frequently (thank goodness for permanent press)I do use it for my sewing all the time. The one pictured above that you are giving away is awesome. I had no idea they even made ironing boards that stood the test of time like that. I really enjoy your blog. It has lots of great ideas and comments.

  164. I have old sturdy ironing board I found at a yard sale. Don`t know the maker but it`s got a nice, big ironing surface, not wobbly and well made.. A little cumbersome because it is longer than I am tall. Sort of like carrying a small surfboard across the room. I guess I could use something a little more streamlined. My favorite board was the one in the wall of my first apartment. A nice little drop down job.

  165. What a generous giveaway! That ironing board sounds wonderful.
    Currently I have a small wood tabletop iron I use when piecing my squares (my DH is worried it will burn the house down)

  166. Funny that we tend to make do with wobbly ironing boards. Maybe I would enjoy ironing if I had a better one. For piecing I use a table-top ironing surface -- but for ironing quilts this would be ideal. My ironing board is probably 30 years old. LOL.

  167. I have a hinged wooden board that fits on top of a standard ironing board when I need a larger ironing surface. I would LOVE to retire it to the wood pile! LOL

    Thank you, as always, for being so kind and generous to your readers!

  168. I have an small ironing board of Brabantia, a name that stands for quality in The Netherlands, I have it already over 30 years, it never failed me, but it is small and my boys keep on growing and growing, I would love a broad ironing board for all the jeans, blouses, t-shirts I iron on weekly basis. I dare to take a chance on your give away.

  169. Sounds like a fabulous ironing board! I own two. One is vintage wooden board and the other a wobbly ole modern one that I wouldn't mine throwing out into a yard sale. Ha!

  170. I have a 25+ year old ironing board. It is a little wobbly so I "try" to remember to set my iron on the counter, not the board - especially if the puppies are underfoot!

  171. I am using my aunts old ironing board. It is over 45 years old, very strong and sturdy, for its age. I thought it was OK, That is until you showed me yours. (I also must set my iron on end which falls every so often). Guess I always looked at fabric, thread, etc. Never thought of a new ironing board.

  172. My ironing board is ready for the dump; they don't make them like they used to. I could sure use a new one!

  173. I've had my ironing board forever. It's ready to be replaced. I have to change the cover every six months. I certainly could use a replacement. No place for my iron when ironing fabric because it takes up the complete board.

  174. My ironing board is one I bought over 35 years ago. It has the separate legs in front, which makes it sturdier than the ones that have a T-bar type leg in front. I drag it to guild workshops. But, for home use I have a cabinet fitted with a "big board". That lets me press yardage more easily. However, June Tailor discontinued the cover that I need to use with it, and it is starting to look pathetic.

  175. This looks like an amazing ironing board! Mine is 35 years old. I got it for a bridal shower gift. I could really use a replacement.

  176. My Mom gave me my ironing board and an iron 31 years ago for a shower gift. I never did like that iron, but the board is still going strong. I am trying to get my DH to make a 'big board' to put over it.

  177. My ironing board came from a garage sale over 30 years ago, while sturdy, it never seems to have enough room for the fabric. I think it was meant to iron shirts, lol. This looks awesome and would be more than a suitable replacement. Shelf for my water and sprays, enough room to do that all important pressing! almost makes me swoon! Thanks for the chance!

  178. I actually have an ironing board that we were given to us by a neighbor when we were mariied in 1972. It makes an loud squeeky noise when you put it up or take it down but is still very sturdy. This looks like a fabulous ironing board and if I won this it would replace the little broken wooden board I use in my sewing room.

  179. My ironing board is an old metal green one ... circa 1971. I wake up the dead every time I open it. WOWZA who knew an ironing board could make so much noise when being opened? It's main use is no longer for ironing clothing, but to iron my cotton yardage for sewing/quilting and to keep things neat as my projects progress.

    To answer your questions:

    So what IRONING board have you come across that you cannot live without...?
    I haven't come across one I could live without because I didn't think I needed a new one (until now).

    How sturdy is it...who makes it....?
    The board I have is sturdy, but too small for ironing yardage. I have no idea who made it but I'm sure it was some guy/gal in a factory somewhere.

    Can you leave your iron on it without burning...?
    No way.

    What do you want in an ironing board?
    One with a LARGE rectangle top to make it easier to iron larger cuts of fabric. One with an iron rest. One that is sturdy enough to withstand a small child running into it at 50 mph and it won't tip over. ; )

    Thank you for the chance to win the "Cadillac" of ironing boards.

  180. My ironing board is okay. The brand is Goodwill. I know i will need to replace it soon as it has a mind of it's own and occationally decides to change it's height (usually when I am Ironing). Thanks for the chance to win a new one.

  181. I had some cheap ironing board from target that I always meant to make my own cover for. But then we left it behind at the house we lived in for 10 years. I don't really miss it because I always used a folded ironing pad. Now I am using a mini, table top ironing board from my mom. The padding in it is useless so I have a towel laying on top. Yeah, I really need to get one!

  182. I've invested in good irons, but never owned a great ironing board ... this one looks to be designed and engineered with a lot of thought. Could it make ironing fun? Maybe, if only because of those great features.
