Erica Thomson gave an interesting and informative talk on all things related to pressing. She covered tools and techniques using steam irons, boards, mats and yarns. Everyone had a chance to handle the samples and learn the correct way of threading a binding wire to get a straight edge. Erica demonstated how to press ribs for a professional finish and another surprising bit of information was that even the most unlikley badly pressed fabric was most often redeemable and she demonstrated the technique.
