Day 4…Needful things for Quilters

12 Days of Christmas 41997.00037


Day 4…I swear this countdown makes the days go even faster!!!…Today is one of the items I certainly do not want to live without ever again…I love this iron…I have one at home, one at the lakehouse because I do not want to iron with a regular iron ever again…I hate filling the water…and I do not have to do it much with this iron…Now there is also a big difference between these two irons and that is that the Pro, the purple one…is NOT under pressure like the white one is…which is a big deal to me…I want to be able to fill it immediately when it needs water…not have to wait.  This iron has immediate steam and LOTS of it!!!  It has a trigger like a gun for steam..Here is the write up from the manufacturer…

“Continuous high powered steam makes this steam station ideal for everyday ironing or special projects. It has the patented Microsteam 400 strainless-steel soleplate for perfect steam distribution. The precision tip reaches difficult areas like collars, seams, and around buttons. Extra large continuous anytime fill water tank holds 33 ounces for up to 1-1/2 hours of ironing. 1800 watts equals fast heat up that is ready in 3 minutes. It also has vertical steam that is ideal for removing wrinkles from hanging garments, drapes and for smoothing and shaping sewing projects. Extra long 6 foot steam cord and extra long 12 foot power cord. No Auto Off.”

Now I am offering this iron at the best price I possibly can…because I want you to have one…please be in no hurry to get your iron as I again…do not know how many quilters are going to order and how many Moda has in stock and they will have to order…and we have to wait to get them in after the 12 days is over to know how many to order….thanks again for your understanding of this and supporting not only my shop by Moda also.  To order your iron please click here.  STEAM STATION

I can say I had a great time at the party…and  Iwas not over served like last year…I baked and baked appetizers all night until Santa came at 10pm…I will show you more pictures after I take a nap…I just finished the dishes and now I NEED that nap…parties are a lot of work!!!!  Here is a photo of me and Santa…to hold you over…LB

  1. Like the dress! I have tried these irons and are great for getting a great press…would love one in my sewing room.

  2. There are two things I like the sound of on this iron. The great steam, not having to fill as often and no automatic shut off. Nothing is more of a time waster then having to wait for the iron to reheat.

  3. Mr. & Mrs. Claus, they look rather dashing!!!!! I am in the market for a new iron…hmmmmm now to justify this purchase. I’ll put it on my list for 2014. I’ll bet your party was a blast.

  4. Sounds like the party was a blast! I’ve used these irons before at my local quilt shop, they ARE fantastic!

  5. This looks like a fantastic toy! Irons are so important in our lives, and this one has all of the greatest features.

  6. Great photo of you and Nick. I am sure everyone had an awesome evening. I like your hair long, looks good on you. Merry Christmas!

  7. Santa and Mrs. Claus look so festive. Bet the party was so much fun! Never heard of a Steam Station but if it is purple and made by Rowenta it has to be good. Will put it on my wishlist. Merry Ho ho ho!

  8. The picture is really cute. It looks like you had a great time at the party. Your iron looks awesome. Thank you for the chance to win. merry Christmas!


  9. That iron would be great for wool applique! My Christmas list is getting longer 🙂 Love the picture of you and Santa…your apron is soo cute!
    Enjoy your nap,

  10. The iron might be $299.99 but the picture is priceless you two look so cute omg I am going to need to drive up by the last day and pick stuff up yes this is another NEED I’ve added thanks Lisa

  11. I’m sure my great Grandmother (who was a quilter) would have sold the farm and gave away her chickens for a Steam Station! Certainly will be on my must have list.

  12. I have 2 Rowentas – a travel iron and a larger steam iron that I love. This one looks like a power house!

  13. I really don’t like filling up the iron with water all the time either! So now I have a spray bottle filled with water and use that to spray my fabric when I need steam… for me. Cute Mr. and Mrs. Santa!! Merry Christmas!

  14. Looks like a great iron. All of the needful things are perfect gifts.
    Wishing you a terrific Christmas with family.

  15. Best needful thing so far this year. Bet I’d have to be really good to earn one of those.
    Merry Christmas to Mr. & Mrs. Santa.

  16. You and Santa are a great team !!!!! AND – a steam generator iron + a quilter —- talk about teamwork!!
    I have one so won’t need another, but absolutely couldn’t live without it. MERRY CHRISTMAS, Lisa + crew

  17. Finally, a steam iron that’s easy to use. I certainly iron more quilty items than clothing now but it looks like it would be good for all-cotton clothes too. And, I like the vertical steam option. Merry Christmas!

  18. Love the photo of you and *your Santa* This iron looks fantastic! I had an opportunity to use one of these once and really liked it. It’s been on my wishlist ever since! Looks like a great party…Hope you also had a great nap 🙂

  19. That Santa…. he has his arm around your waist! Snowing again on my screen. I’ll have to be content to come here and look at this for Christmas. Warming up here in the east… 60’s tomorrow! I’m originally from Milwaukee and I want SNOW!!

  20. Oh WOW! What a great sounding iron. I really appreciate all the neat things that you are showing. Most I have never seen. I wish this could be a daily feature-not just at Christmas! There are so many tools that we obviously don’t know about unless someone puts it out front for us.

  21. I have heard awesome things about this product. I steam personally with envy of those who are fortunate to own it already. Santa???

  22. I feel a good iron is one of the most important pieces of equipment for a quilter and this looks like a great one.

  23. What a nice iron, I actually love the ironing process as I am quilting. I hope you told Santa that you have been very nice this year!

  24. I didn’t realize that there was an option of not having the pressure. I used one with pressure at a charity sewing day,and having to wait to refill had me puzzled. I think I understand now, and you are right–without pressure is the way to go.

  25. That Rowenta S.S. looks like the ticket to same fabulous pressing. With that 6 ft cord, a water tank that holds over 1 QT of water and no auto shut off, one could get a lot of serious travelin’ done!
    You & Saint Nick make a cute Ho,Ho. Sounds like you lived to talk about it!

  26. Great picture of Mr & Mrs Claus. Sounds like the party was a fun one….would like to win the iron. Thanks for all the great giveaways.

  27. Great pic, looks like fun! Thanks for your review of the iron, hard to justify the expense without input from other quilters.

  28. As Selfish as this will sound ~ I want this Iron!! Not in my life time I think!! I love to Iron and this would be such a joy to have. Hints do not seem to work in my home!! 🙂

  29. I have one that is about three years old and LOVE IT. Next time the professional model – would love INSTANT steam. Everyone should find a way to order one. You know Santa – its Christmas and Birthday for the next (fill in the blank) years. Merry Christmas to all.

  30. I have Iron Envy!!!! You not only have one but 2! You are a lucky girl! I have put it on my wishlist from Santa (hubby). You and Santa look cute together! Thanks for the chance to win something!

  31. I think this is a great improvement to have less pressure. It’s so nice to have an iron like this!
    Happy Holidays, Lynn

  32. Hi Lisa, what a most wonderful iron. Amazing we have come so far in technology to have such an efficient tool for our quilting. Thanks for all your suggestions. Blessings and smiles, Emilou 🙂

  33. This sounds like it would be so wonderful to have. There’s nothing like a great steam iron to make your sewing going better.

  34. There’s nothing as wonderful as STEAM when ironing, fusing, or just plain pressing! Thanks for the heads up on this – Can’t wait to get one!

  35. I really like hearing about your favorites. This helps me when making purchases and I have to admit that my wish list is growing rapidly this week.

  36. I’ve never seen an ironing system like this before. I love using steam when I’m ironing, but my iron has started leaking and I hate when I get water spots on the clothes. This looks like it would be great to us. Great picture.

  37. What a great iron. I like lots of steam too. Thanks for sharing the party pics- looks like you had fun.


  38. This iron looks great! It seems like I am always adding water to my iron. It might be time for a new iron.

  39. I really like your 12 days of Christmas – I am finding out so many great ideas. I actually went to buy a new iron and when I got to the store (in Brookfield) they told me the coupon did not apply to that iron and they were sold out aarrrggghhh. I can hardly wait until I am up around the store again so I can buy a lot of the items that you have me excited about.

  40. Wow! That looks like a fabulous iron! It isn’t in my budget right now after buying Christmas gifts for 5 boys but I can dream!! Looks like your party was lots of fun!

  41. Your party looked like a lot of fun. I can see why you would need a nap. The iron looks like a BMW of “irons”.

  42. What a fun party! The food and fashions look fab! What a wonderful iron. I have the pressurized version, which is wonderful, but early on, I released the steam valve to empty the reservoir before it cooled and I blew out a ceiling tile. It is funny now, not so much when trying to find ice and burn cream. To not have to wait to add more water would be AMAZING! I am dropping Santa a note right now! I promise I have been good!

  43. Great looking iron. We are so lucky to have all of these wonderful tools and appliances available for our use.-our ancestors would have loved to have had any of them when they were sewing and making quilts. Fun looking party and I really enjoyed your pictures.

  44. What a fun looking party! The iron looks like a wonderful addition to any quilter’s equipment. Would love for it to be mine!!

  45. That iron would be heavenly. For some reason I love to iron. Even as a young one I preferred my own ironing of my clothes even though my mother had a lady who ironed for her. As my mother said too often, it takes all kinds or types.

    Love your party pictures. What a fun theme for all of those grown ups.

  46. This iron looks amazing! I’ve had a Sussman gravity feed
    Professional iron for over 30 yrs but I think it’s time for a new one.

  47. The ruffled shirts crack me up! I bet that iron works like a dream….. Have to put it on the wish list for when my current iron give out.

  48. Thanks for including the video on Veterans talent. So true!
    A new iron would be the highlight under my tree…would love one this year as my outdated one just died. Best wishes for a Happy Holiday!

  49. Thanks Lisa for sharing your fun party pics with all of us – looks like fun was had by all! And thanks for bringing this iron to our attention. Would love to give it a try……

  50. I’ve loved all of you wish list items, many are new to me….but this iron is just over-the-top on the wishlist! Mr. and Mrs. Claus are just too cute!

  51. Love all the pictures. Looks like a great party! I will have to add the iron to my wish list. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  52. I believe a good iron is a MUST in the quilting corner 🙂 I have a hard time using anything but Rowenta…..this iron sounds even better!! Would LOVE to have one! Thanks again for all your needful things (and now some of MY needful things), my list is getting longer!
    BTW…the pictures are great…looks like a fun party – are those camo boots Mrs. Clause has on her feet under her dress?? 🙂

  53. Gee Mrs Claus, will you piease tell Santa that I have been a very good girl and would love one of those irons for Christmas…please, please please.

  54. Here you are helping us with our Christmas lists, (which are growing longer every day!) but you haven’t shared with us what is on your list? This iron looks like a wonderful addition to any sewing room!

  55. Looks like everyone had a fun time at your party! Guess I have to add this iron to the wish list too. Thanks for sharing your list of needful things. I haven’t seen some of the items before.

  56. Merry Christmas! Lisa, you’ve been such a good girl it has knocked that Santa’s beard right off! I agree about irons & steam, thanks for all the tips!
