Ive never had a problem, plus you would need alot more heat to harm glass then what iron puts out. I gently press front and back, sometimes placeing a wash cloth in between. I even know somebody who irons their thread! That ive not done to afraid of melting it.

Use what you got even around the house. I've been known to use paper towels or toilet paper, and it still does the job so long as you insert some stablizer or something in between to keep it sturdy.

You don't have to go broke to get something accomplished. I learned that from my mom.

Oh man, I would have never thought of coffee filters. That's a great idea.

I had one of these Iroquois whimsey beaded boxes from 1906. It was dated on the top. It was made for the tourist trade. Anyway, I bought it off ebay, and I took it apart to salvage the old beads because it was falling apart. They used the weirdest things inside to make the box. It was lined in paste board (different than cardboard, something they used in the old days) but that wasn't enough strength, so part of a cigar box was used inside and some old clips and there was disintegrated tissue paper.

It could be that the stuff they stuck in there caused the box to fall apart because the metal clips had rusted through and the other pieces including the pasteboard had turned brittle and full of acidic foxing.

HOWEVER, I salvaged some VERY nice 100+ year old beads that were very pretty, and looking at the reds, I think they are French glass...the French reds have a particular look to them...they are quite nice.

Not sure what I will do with them, but I really wanted to save them because the box itself could not be saved.

I'll see if I can drag the old camera out tomorrow and get a pic. Old beads are really nice. I have to clean them. Dirt gets into the holes and any imperfections (which there are more in the old ones) and I take a Jewelry cleaner and I run those things in it with the chemicals to clean the beads.

When I was a kid I would visit a cousin who married a man who had cows and I always enjoyd going around with him doing chores/ milking. Then we would head back in for a nice breakfast.

If my stuff is too thin I glue layers together or glue a tracing to stiff felt. I've tried lots of materials and I keep coming back to stiff felt, tacky glue. I recently started backing with ultra suede though because I just love how it finishes! My state fair entry needed a large backing and it needed to be white white so I got the ultra suede. And you can get a needle through it so easily.. Which is awesome if you have carpal tunnel or arthritis. Makes edge beading a breeze!

This is my first post. I've been lurking for a while, but registered so I could let you know about the Pellon for beading. I just got some Pellon stabilizer at Walmart this week. You want the Pellon #926. It's called "extra firm" and is pretty sturdy. They have so many different kinds. I hope that helps for next time.
