STEAMING SERVICE

This service is available for silk that has been painted with steam fix dyes. I can steam fabric upto 1.4 metres wide (55 inches in old money), and also scarves with ready rolled edges. (Other made up articles such as waistcoats or ties can be steamed, but I recommend that you contact me first if you have such items that need steam fixing.) My charges for steaming are shown below. If you do decide to send me your works of art to be steamed, please read the notes at the bottom of this page carefully.

IMPORTANT NOTES
  1. Before sending material for steaming make sure that it is completely dry and that all traces of salt, if used, have been removed.
  2. If you have used any form of wax as a resist please ensure that all traces of the wax are removed from the fabric before sending it for steaming.
  3. Whatever outer wrapping you use for your parcel, please make sure that the inner packaging is of polythene so that there is no chance of your fabric coming into contact with any moisture before it reaches me.
  4. Return post and packing are charged at cost, and need to be added on to the steaming cost calculated using the rates shown in the table above. Please indicate whether you would like your steamed items sent back by First Class post, by Recorded Delivery, or by Special Delivery.
  5. Please make your payment by cheque. If you are in any doubt as to how much the steaming and/or the post and packing will come to simply contact me and I will advise you accordingly.
