I have lots of irons and they serve different purposes for me and my quilting and sewing, but I never iron clothes (ok, rarely)! I have one iron I use with steam, another one for fusible web and still another for doing TShirt quilts etc. I think I have about three more as well in the iron queue!
The last few I acquired have come from Freecycle, a network to promote waste reduction and help save landscape from being taken over by landfills. The post said something to the effect, "who needs to iron anymore with wash and wear clothes?" She never met a quilter I'd say!
But this one I picked up literally and figuratively is hot, hot, hot! The burn still hurts!
BSoleille! The bright side of Freecycle.
