I purchased my second iron (above), direct from the Norris Steam showroom in east London. I try to avoid buying things online, especially ‘my preciouses’. Due to limited studio space I use an ordinary iron board.

I recently found a video on how to thread it on Pinterest.
Tailors ham and Pressing mitts
My pressing mitts were made for me by my adopted work Uncle :-), a machinist I met while freelancing back in 2006. ( thank you Uncle Jaynal)
On my way to the studio one day, I took a wander by the second hand market stalls in Deptford. ( yes I go there a lot )And found this sleeve board.
Tada! my new sleeve board :-)
I hope you found this information useful?
If you plan to come to Cockpit Arts Deptford Spring open studios, pop into studio 209 and say hello.
