To all my Cute Embroidery friends I wish you a Happy Holiday time and much success and happiness in the New Year.

I'm back in Arizona, visiting from South Australia, and I wanted to buy a new ironing board cover for my daughter. I did my research and found so many kinds of covers that I am now completely confused. I wanted to get her a teflon treated cover but now I think that might be a bad choice.
Has anyone any experience in the use of teflon, over silicone treated, ironing board covers or are the same thing. I've done the Google thing but I really need some first-hand experience stories, suggestions or advice from real people. Also if you do have any preference and know where to get what you prefer could you post the URL for me please?

Hello Alma, Wondered how you are going. Didn't realise you were in The States. Be thankful as Adelaide is expected to be 41C next Saturday.

Hi Alma..I use the Miracle Ironing Board Cover with the Tefflon Shoe for the iron...My first ironing board cover lasted 27 years...and I could have kept using it...it had two or three small fraying spots...two of them I put an iron-on denim patch over...but while at the Road to California quilt show last year..I broke down and got another one...my friends convinced me that after 27 years, it didn't owe me anything...I am still using the same Teflon iron shoe...wouldn't be with out it...it is expensive (at least I thought so), but worth the price...the link to the site is below and the Teflon shoe is under the accessories tab...keep us posted on what you decide on...Happy New Year!
