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

    I have never seen a steam station. it looks like it would really be a time saver. Noy something i can afford right now.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

  25. Barbara Avatar

    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!

    Looks like a great iron. All of the needful things are perfect gifts.

    I have never heard of an Iron Station either. Looks interesting.

  30. Sylvia Avatar

    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.

    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

    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!

    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 🙂

    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!!

    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.

    Looks liken the party was a lot of fun. The steam iron sounds great. I have never used one.

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

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

    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!

    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.

  47. barefootquilter2 Avatar

    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!

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

  55. Marlene Avatar

    Wow, what an awesome iron! I’ve been looking for one with really good steam and this looks like it! Blessings, Marlene

  56. Karen in breezy point Avatar

    Hmmm. Sounds like I may need one of these–my Oliso seems to have some sort of virus and has been puking on my fabric!

    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.

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

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

  64. KathyE Avatar

    Now that looks like something we should all have. My wish list is getting longer and longer.

  65. Janet Avatar

    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!

  66. Lisa Avatar

    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.

    Merry Christmas. It appears everyone was having a wonderful time. That iron is awesome!

  68. Cecilia Avatar

    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.

  69. Jane Avatar

    I think it’s time for a new iron. Loved the party pictures.

    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.

  78. Susan Avatar

    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!

    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”.

    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!

    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.

    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.
