Fabric “Manipulation”

Isn’t there something really satisfying about ironing and folding new fabric.
 I just love these two new fabrics I got at Paducah. The top one is a Victoria Findlay Wolfe fabric. The fabric below is Catnip by Gingiber “Zest for Your Nest” for Moda.
I find the ironing and folding very meditative. As I iron and fold, I contemplate all the things I might make with these new fabrics. Do you do that too?

Hmmm, can't say I meditate when I iron. Are you supposed to wash and iron new fabric before using it? I always like that crisp feel of new material.

I enjoy pressing and folding and putting away new fabric. I wash every new piece as I've seen fading before so I don't want to take a chance.

Ha! I just took a class on "manipulating fabric" that involved creating wrinkles, so I was totally on the wrong page when I started your post :D
