Mighty Mini Giveaway: The Small Board You Didn’t Know You Needed!

Lazies, Get ready to fall in love! When it comes to pressing small projects or small details, the ironing board doesn’t get the job done. Meet my secret weapon for perfectly pressed purses and more: the 2×4 Mighty Mini Board from my Press Perfect line with Clover. Finally, we can reach those corners, nooks and crannies for a perfectly pressed finish.


The Mighty Mini is a small board that’s all function!
– Squared nose for full function
– Long free-arm
– Sturdy base, metal frame, heavy duty cover/pad
– Low center of gravity for stability and ease of use
– Sized for your hand so you can hold/control the board
– A little longer than two average irons: 21″ long x 3 1/2″ wide x 4″ tall
– Portable, legs tuck neatly beneath for compact storage
– Clover #7800, $46.95 list price
– Order through your local quilt shop, online or click here to order any of the Press Perfect items

The Nose Knows
The squared nose of the Mighty Mini free-arm is revolutionary and it addresses one of my major grievances with all sizes of ironing boards – the elongated rounded nose.

The rounded nose lacks support for our projects right where we need it. It creates pull and drag, allowing our project to droop or sag during pressing. It’s the same on the regular board, table topper and the sleeve board.

Gosh It’s Shaped Like A Piece of Wood
Yes, exactly. It reminds me of a 2×4 plank of wood. That’s where it got its name.

Square Gets The Job Done
The squared nose of the Mighty Mini is ideal for pressing small projects like my bag designs. Look how the board fits inside my Claire Handbag design. Imagine how useful this will be for all kinds of projects and details.

Sleeve Board?
If you are thinking this is just another sleeve board, I understand. I’ve owned a good number of sleeve boards over the years and I have been disappointed by all of them. Rounded nose, bad shape, unstable, poor quality, bad leg placement, blah, blah, blah. It’s enough to make a Lazy Girl develop hard feelings for the whole category.

Well, the Mighty Mini is a smart, functional small board. Don’t call it a sleeve board, you’ll hurt its feelings. You can certainly use it to press sleeves and collars, but it’s so much more than that. It’s the new basic you didn’t know you needed. Use it in conjunction with your regular board or alone. It literally fills the gaps your big board leaves.


Quilt Market
I’ll be in Clover’s booth #1802 at Quilt Market in Houston this week. Come by to see me and play with the new goodies. I also hope to see you at my Schoolhouse and Take & Teach in Houston.

    What a great little ironing board! This is perfect for making purses and makeup bags etc. And I love that it looks so sturdy and won’t colapse when you are trying to get into little areas! Definitely a must have! Thank you for the chance to win!

  2. Cecilia — October 21, 2013 @ 2:12 pm

    I agree that the ironing board needs to be redesigned. I have a problem with the long nose when ironing my husband’s shirts. I like the look of your new mighty mini.

  3. Dee Taylor — October 21, 2013 @ 2:16 pm

    Woo-hoo! This is just what I’ve been lookig for!

  4. Florine Bynum — October 21, 2013 @ 2:20 pm

    This is a very nice alternative board to have and use in a small space! Also very handy to use when pressing is necessary at the embroidery machine!

  5. Carol Gregg — October 21, 2013 @ 2:24 pm

    You’ve found the answer! What an innovative little board – just the ticket for pressing in the corners of those lovely bags and totes to give them a professional finish. I’d be very excited to own one of these little gems!

  6. Mary Ann Atzrott — October 21, 2013 @ 2:24 pm

    I couldn’t agree with you more! This is a great little board that I sure could find a lot of uses for…. would love to win one!!

  7. Ananke — October 21, 2013 @ 2:31 pm

    Wow is so useful! That make the sewing easier!
    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  8. Rose Scarlet — October 21, 2013 @ 2:34 pm

    I’ve just started making miniature bears… I can see where this would be a huge help!

  9. Paula Crook — October 21, 2013 @ 2:38 pm

    Wow, this mini ironing board looks great. I can imagine using it for all kinds of pressing.

  10. Scarlett R — October 21, 2013 @ 2:43 pm

    Aren’t you the smart one, Joan?! I think this little board is just the thing I need!! I’ve kinda wondered what was up with that tapered end on ironing boards. I do press shirts occasionally and it does work well for that, I guess. Love the new line of products you are introducing!!

  11. Susan S. — October 21, 2013 @ 2:44 pm

    Where has this little ironing board been all my life? Love it!

  12. Kathleen Cram — October 21, 2013 @ 2:46 pm

    I think the Mighty Mini will be great for small projects. We have the small irons so now we need the Mighty Mini.

  13. Marcia Ahlbrand — October 21, 2013 @ 2:48 pm

    I can’t wait to own one of these!!

  14. wintu nancy — October 21, 2013 @ 2:52 pm

    You are right about needing good tools for ironing. I always say I can’t sew without my iron…am sure you know what I mean. Ironing makes all the difference in the final product

  15. Theresa McDpnald — October 21, 2013 @ 2:55 pm

    The Mighty Mini and Press Perfect seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Because of recent problems with my arm, I’ve been struggling setup my ironing board, The mighty mini would be perfect!i

  16. Sandy K — October 21, 2013 @ 3:03 pm

    I really like this a lot! The squared feature would help with lots of pressing.

  17. Sherry Bartlett — October 21, 2013 @ 3:09 pm

    I think this is fantastic! It is so hard to press in those tight spaces. Would love to have one!

  18. Teri Riordan — October 21, 2013 @ 3:10 pm

    I really like the board! Looks like it would recall work for all your “square” pressing!

  19. Alicia Robinette — October 21, 2013 @ 3:10 pm

    I have always disliked ironing. This mini board will help me projects look professional-not homemade. Great idea!

  20. Lesley — October 21, 2013 @ 3:11 pm

    I have an iron board which my husband bought me when I was pregnant with my son – he is now 29 – as he saw me struggling to iron with a back ache. He found it on a bric-a-brac stall at a fete, it was pretty tatty but has had more covers that I can count. I also have a sleeve board which works better than none but the rounded nose is a problem so would love a mighty mini as I sit and iron.

  21. Dawn — October 21, 2013 @ 3:12 pm

    Finally a little ironing board that will actually work well! Great job on the design Joan! Keep up the good work! We all really appreciate it!
    Happy Pressing!!

  22. Joan Rodriguez — October 21, 2013 @ 3:14 pm

    This is a nice ironing board. I like the all-metal construction, thanks for sharing.

  23. Deanna B — October 21, 2013 @ 3:23 pm

    Mighty Mini is the answer to my problems when I press small things. Thank you Clover!

  24. Jackie Konder — October 21, 2013 @ 3:38 pm

    Looks like just the thing. I’ve been using a tailor’s sleeve roll, but it does have some drawbacks. Definitely want to add this to my sewing room.

  25. Linda W. — October 21, 2013 @ 3:41 pm

    This looks fantastic! I think it is time for a small board, not too large or wide.

  26. Vicki Sprain — October 21, 2013 @ 3:51 pm

    Very smart idea! Gotta get one!

  27. Betty Bowman — October 21, 2013 @ 3:53 pm

    Wonderful! I could used it this weekend at retreat!! So hard to press seams on purses and totes!!

  28. Penny D — October 21, 2013 @ 3:59 pm

    So love this board and can’t wait to get my hands on it!!!! It is so cute and looks so functional!! Great job Joan! Wish I could play at Market with all the new goodies!

  29. Tammy — October 21, 2013 @ 4:05 pm

    This sounds like it would be perfect for traveling!! Thanx for the chance! 🙂

  30. Patricia Philipp — October 21, 2013 @ 4:13 pm

    So excited to see this Joan.You’re right, we didn’t know we needed it until now! If I don’t win, it’s on my wish list for Christmas.

  31. Linda Lester — October 21, 2013 @ 4:14 pm

    Just the right size!

  32. I like the all over evenness of this board! No more wonky lines caused by a tapered board!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win one! Sure wish I could attend Quilt Market, I could get into a lot of trouble! ????

  33. Peggy — October 21, 2013 @ 4:23 pm

    Finally, I’ve needed this little gem for a long time while making my handbags.

  34. Brenda Sanderson — October 21, 2013 @ 4:25 pm

    How wondersful and usefull. I wonder if we’ll ever be able to find one in Canada-as I live 3 hrs. find the closest city.

  35. barbara woods — October 21, 2013 @ 4:32 pm

    would love to have that it would be perfect for my quilting

  36. Carolyn H — October 21, 2013 @ 4:33 pm

    Looks like a great addition to my purse making supplies.

  37. Ruth Sunday — October 21, 2013 @ 4:39 pm

    Looks great and I’ve been making bags and covers all summer. Would be extremely helpful.

  38. Debbie H — October 21, 2013 @ 4:42 pm

    I like it. It looks like it would work great! Thanks

  39. Leann Young — October 21, 2013 @ 4:45 pm

    I could have used this for a small pouch I just finished. Also love the color!

  40. Heather — October 21, 2013 @ 4:53 pm

    This is exactly what I need for ironing my bags. I can never get the perfectly pressed corners that I want for a professional look! Thanks so much for creating it!

  41. Grace Talsma — October 21, 2013 @ 5:05 pm

    I’ve just started sewing bags and purses and this is exactly what I need!! It is so difficult to get a good sharp press with an ironing board. This mighty-mini board looks like the perfect answer!

  42. Toni Anne Potter — October 21, 2013 @ 5:06 pm

    What a great idea! I made my own bigboard ironing board, because of the reasons you’ve described. I’ve recently started making mini quilts and incorporating embroidery into my quilts. I think you’ve hit on a wonderful product, a smaller ironing board is something many of us need. Good luck at Houston !!!

  43. Carol Karnes — October 21, 2013 @ 5:08 pm

    looks perfect for loads of small picky jobs. Would love to test drive one. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  44. Sandee Scofield — October 21, 2013 @ 5:11 pm

    That sounds like a very good and usfull item for our purse making. You come up with the best tools and patterns for us. Thanks!

  45. Candace Martinez — October 21, 2013 @ 5:29 pm

    I look forward to getting a Might Mini. I hope to find it at JoAnn’s. Of course it would be very, very cool if I could win one too!

  46. DeDe Grove — October 21, 2013 @ 5:32 pm

    The Mighty Mini — will be allot more efficient than the ‘square board’ I now use. I call mine boardie designed by my husband for just what the Mighty Mini is meant to do! And I won’t have to have 3 arms anymore to use it.

  47. Linda Pilgreen — October 21, 2013 @ 5:39 pm

    I’ve been looking for something like this to use for pressing my purse seams…..and most of them are Lazy Girls! I can see so many uses for this Mighty Mini!

  48. Alice Collins — October 21, 2013 @ 5:44 pm

    This looks like it would be really handy for small projects. I’d love to have one for my new sewing/craft room!

  49. Monique — October 21, 2013 @ 5:45 pm

    I can why that would be an awesome tool to add to my collection.

  50. Cynthia Walcutt — October 21, 2013 @ 5:49 pm

    The Mighty Minie is AWESOME!! I wish I were that smart to think up something like that. but I would use the Mighty Mini all the time if I had one!!
