Carol,……. I’m smiling all over!

Your Fitz Like A Glove tm Ironing Board Cover has been a welcomed aid in my home for about 17 years now. My first one lasted 14 years, a gift from a friend. It was still in one piece, and untorn, when I replaced it with my latest one, three years ago, just for a fresher appearance.

This one is still as good as new. And I use it for every conceivable bench surface requisite in ironing, sewing and depilling. And fancy that! Designed by a man. Accompanied of course by your Superior Felt Underlay, and your little Best Boy Ironing Cloth….which is a worthwhile little accessory, having saved all my artificial fabrics and former chorus costumes from getting scorched, or press-marked.

I always sponge up those water drops that randomly drip from my steam iron when I’m too impatient to allow it to first reach the appropriate temperature. Thus preventing the fibres of the strong twill weave from swelling and breaking. I learnt this helpful hint ages ago Carol, from your very own earlier website. And remember it regularly. Thankyou.

Loved this video above!! ….When a spectator feels completely comfortable, then the performer has connected successfully with the audience. And I felt so at ease, because you are totally relaxed.. A lovely ‘natural’ feel to your outdoor ‘stage’; with it’s unique freshness. And how nice to hear Victor’s co-direction. He wont appreciate the term ‘natural’ when it comes to his labour intensive rock wall!! But you both obviously enjoyed all the presentation clips….as I did.

Onward and upward Carol, with video technology under your belt. Congratulations to you both. Keep smiling now!! It’s contagious.

Good morning Beverley,

You’ll have to star in the next video! I’ll get in touch with your agent to book you in!!

You’ve covered all the bases with your comment. And touched on aspects that make a video far too long to watch. Like the value of the Superior Felt Underlay. The Best Boy Pressing Cloth. And why we ban our customers from ironing a wet patch dry.

People often ask me how long a cover lasts. And my answer is always the same. It’s guaranteed against wear and tear for 12 months. And after that, it’s up to them and how well you look after things.

14 years for a cover is a very long time.

I’ve never worn a cover out either. I changed my first cover after 8 years because I wanted to try the new dark colours. I’ve had Ebony on my board since 2009 because I bought a black Morphy Richards iron – which I LOVE! – and felt that if anyone should be colour coordinated in the ironing room, it should be me!

We iron every day. And press The Travel Bug Shoe Bags, Best Boy Pressing Cloths, Roadworks Aprons, Mr Chins Laundry Bags and Log Luggers when they come back from our sewing company.

Victor’s rock wall surrounding the walled herb garden is a knockout. He’s not only a gifted architect, he’s a gifted rock wall builder. He’s built 5 extensive walls on this property since 1992 and they always catch the eyes of visitors. And feature in many of the product photos we do.

I’ll pass your comments on to Victor, Beverley. He’s appreciative of everyone who loves the cover he designed for his mother. And he’ll be smitten with your comment about his rock wall!

It’s always a pleasure and delight to receive your support. You’re an extraordinary ambassador for the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover. I love it!!

Best wishes always,

Carol ❤❤❤

Carol another great video and the interaction between you and Victor is great. Hope it brings tons of orders for you. Eventually they will take less and less time to compile as you get into the groove. Well done.

Morning Victoria.

Thank you! It was fun to do. Victor’s a very bossy Cecile B DeMille, but great directors say they need to be to get the best out of their performers!

I look forward to the next one.

Best wishes always,
