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.

    Love the idea of a small surface to press the insides of bags. They are always so awkward to press the corners on a regular sleeve board of ironing surface.

  2. Barbara — October 21, 2013 @ 5:56 pm

    I just finished making another Miranda bag and could have used the mighty mini. Would like to have one.

  3. Phyllis Klosterman — October 21, 2013 @ 6:00 pm

    This board looks like a winner!! If I can’t win one, I’ll have to buy one! It will be just the size for my quilted eyeglass cases.

  4. Kim Santre — October 21, 2013 @ 6:04 pm

    THANK YOU ! Do you know how hard it is to iron doll clothes ? I have the ironing pad for table and the wooden table top board which is sooooo heavy. This is just a magnificent product! so much easier to take with you not heavy and cumbersome!! Easier for my granddaughters to be able to iron their doll pattern cut pieces . Thanks for another wonderful product!!!! and YES I NEED YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Barbara Henning — October 21, 2013 @ 6:08 pm

    Wonderful invention.

  6. Linda Clark — October 21, 2013 @ 6:09 pm

    I really need this. Such a great notion

  7. Holly fitzpatrick — October 21, 2013 @ 6:19 pm

    Love the idea of this new board. I love doing bags and pressing is one of the issues!

  8. Marcy papariello — October 21, 2013 @ 6:20 pm

    This looks great! Hope I win!

  9. Jenniffer Howling — October 21, 2013 @ 6:23 pm

    The flat end certainly would cut down on the position changes you need with a regular board

  10. Jane Meier — October 21, 2013 @ 6:33 pm

    This would be very useful when constructing small gift items like wallets, accessories, key and luggage tags, eyeglass cases, stuffed animals and doll clothes.

  11. KT — October 21, 2013 @ 6:36 pm

    Wow that looks like a great Idea! I could of used that on my Supertote!

  12. Mary White — October 21, 2013 @ 7:07 pm

    I admit, I’m lazy when it comes to ironing. I do it, but I know its not properly done….this board sure looks like it would be a big help!!

  13. Judy martirano — October 21, 2013 @ 7:13 pm

    This is the item I need, I make totes and bags and was wishing for such an item. Great!

  14. carol c — October 21, 2013 @ 7:13 pm

    Wow, I adore it, just what I been looking for-thanks for the opportunity

  15. Patricia A Paola — October 21, 2013 @ 7:16 pm

    What a neat portable idea, would be great for ironing trims, bias, small applique’ pieces…just so many ideas! I think Clover should have a tote bag to store it in with a carry handle and/or an over the shoulder strap.

  16. Cher — October 21, 2013 @ 7:16 pm

    What a great idea, this will work great with all the small squares for the Dear Jan and Farmers wife projects and of course all bag pieces for purses.

  17. Kathleen Sergas — October 21, 2013 @ 7:17 pm

    I would love to win this as I am just starting my hand at handbags…..

  18. Sue Shew — October 21, 2013 @ 7:17 pm

    This a great idea for pressing small items. I would love to have one of these mini boards.

  19. Linda — October 21, 2013 @ 7:24 pm

    I really like Clover products, so I know the Mighty Mini Board will be fantastic. Put that with your beautiful bags, and you can’t go wrong. Keep up the good work.

  20. Kd Brown — October 21, 2013 @ 7:24 pm

    Wow, it’s about time that this issue got ironed out! What a great idea! I’d love to win. 🙂

  23. Barbara Lange — October 21, 2013 @ 7:42 pm

    I have an old sleeve board that is wearing out. This would be perfect. I use it all the time when I make my Lazy girl purses. And I have have made many.

  24. Nancy Anderson — October 21, 2013 @ 7:58 pm

    I can’t wait to get one of these! Just what I have been wishing for. If it were available today, I would buy one for my sewing sister’s birthday, for sure.

  25. Jane T — October 21, 2013 @ 8:02 pm

    I hate to get down the ironing board because it takes up so much room. This would be great and could stay on a table top in my sewing room all the time.

  26. Patsy Goodin — October 21, 2013 @ 8:09 pm

    Just what I have been wanting. I can hardly wait to get the board.
    I will get my local quilt shop to order it for me.
    Thanks so much .

  38. Dianne H. — October 21, 2013 @ 10:20 pm

    The Mighty Mini Board is a must have for me. Love the square nose. I have a sleeve board and don’t like the rounded nose. It just doesn’t do the job. Thanks for the information on this great new product.

  39. Tamie — October 21, 2013 @ 10:40 pm

    This looks like it would be a great addition to my sewing room. It looks really sturdy too. Thanks for sharing.

  41. Belinda K-N — October 21, 2013 @ 11:04 pm

    You are my hero – these new ironing products are fabulous!! They are all on my “must have” list…it is about time someone made some ironing tool updates! I am so excited to add the new Press Perfect line to my sewing studio…

  42. deknits — October 21, 2013 @ 11:21 pm

    I can’t wait to try this awesome tool! I hate having to use my mushy sleeve board to press crisp edges into my bags.

  43. Mary Ann — October 21, 2013 @ 11:31 pm

    Yes! I am tired of resorting to a towel on the edge go the counter. And pressing makes all the difference in bag making and garment sewing. Thanks for chance to get one.

  44. Virginia — October 22, 2013 @ 12:02 am

    That looks mighty useful – I’d like one!

  45. Mystica — October 22, 2013 @ 12:22 am

    What a practical idea. Specially for corners and hard to get areas. If this giveaway is open to all, please count me in.

  46. Lynne Tilley — October 22, 2013 @ 12:25 am

    Oh, I love the looks of that! Pressing is such a big part of making bags, and I love to make bags. This looks like the perfect thing. Glad for a chance to win! Thanks!

  47. robin — October 22, 2013 @ 1:10 am

    Interesting tool. I think I could put it to use! Thanks!

  48. Chris — October 22, 2013 @ 1:47 am

    This would be great for making doll clothes.

  49. Stacy Webb — October 22, 2013 @ 2:25 am

    What a great idea! I have to have one of these for my bag making!

  50. Marilee Sherwood — October 22, 2013 @ 2:46 am

    These look wonderful. I love a sleeve board, but this looks even better for purse making and when I make baby clothes.
