Did you know that we have a heat press here at Quilted Joy? These tools make T-shirt quilts a breeze!
We all have that stack of t-shirts sitting in the closet because we can’t bear to throw them out or give them away. They’re a reminder of cherished memories and hard-earned accomplishments. T-shirt quilts are wonderful gifts and keepsakes, but making the quilt can sometimes be a difficult and long process.
When you make a T-shirt quilt, it is important to stabilize the stretchy knit fabric of a T-shirt with lightweight nonwoven fusible interfacing. If you use your iron at home, you have to fuse several different areas, about ten seconds at a time. With the heat press’s large 24″ x 16″ surface most areas that you need to interface only require one ten-second pass. An added bonus: you aren’t heating up your sewing room! One of our teachers will help get you started, but you won’t need their help for long. The heat press is super simple to operate and you will interface your shirts in no time!
Rent our heat press for only $10/hour (Minimum one hour rental). If you precut your T-shirts and your interfacing, you’ll fly right through that pile of fusing.
We understand lack of space at home can be a problem for many quilters. We encourage renters to take advantage of our 70″ x 35″ cutting station. Don’t forget to bring along your rotary cutter and snips!
