Steady Betty 15''X24''-Gray
This is a unique; high quality pressing surface that holds fabric down with little to no movement for a perfect press. The Steady Betty was first designed to aid the quilter but has since found many other uses. The idea behind the Steady Betty was to speed up the process of quilting by making the tedious task of pressing much easier. If the pressing is done incorrectly it can destroy the entire quilt or art project. The Steady Betty is a precision built surface that keeps material and fabrics from slipping. The Steady Betty is available in a variety of sizes: each sold separately. This package contains one 15''x24'' board. Made in USA.
Steady Betty 15''X24''-Gray is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by SuzySews from Steady Betty Pressing Board - Skip the starch! This pressing board seems to be well made. I liked the size of the 15X24". Within less than ten uses, however, I had ugly stains from fabric bleeding through to board, marking pen transferring from fabric to board, and from over-spray of spray starch. I am suspecting that use of spray starch caused the fabric to bleed onto the Steady Betty board, something I have never had happen with my traditional ironing board. A warm water mist will not remove these stains. Your iron will NOT glide across the surface of this pressing board--the pieces do stay in place as stated by manufacturer, but so does the iron! My seams are not as crisp or flat (as they are with a traditional ironing board) when I use the Steady Betty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanda from Steady Betty I love my Steady Betty. I have it place to the left of my sewing machine to press quilting blocks as I go. Fabric does not move so there is no distortion of blocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Winnie J from The Steady Betty Just received this. I was pleased to find the actual board is hard. When At first glance, I was surprised at the cover on the board. It looked like cheap foam. I have used it one time while (hemming a pair of slippery dress pants) and it did exactly what it claimed to do. Material didn't move while ironing the seam. The iron will not glide over the Betty Surface, but the material does not move when ironing. I hope it holds up, I love it!
