Ann Steeves, of Gorgeous Fabrics
, gave an outstanding presentation to the New England Chapter on April 22. Her lecture was entitled "Pressing Techniques for Professional Results." With her characteristic thoroughness, clarity, and humor she covered the purposes of pressing, differences between pressing and ironing, and demonstration of a vast array of pressing tools. The meeting, which was open to non-members, drew guests as well as members of the chapter to our frequent meeting location, Fabric Place Basement in Natick, MA. In addition to Ann's presentation there was time for visiting, refreshments, and, of course, fabric shopping.
Ann has published multiple articles in Threads magazine, most recently "Pressing Matters," in issue 126. She has also created and produced an informational video on pressing
that can be viewed on YouTube.
