Wanna strike fear in the very heart of a quilter??? well, it happened to me yesterday. I was booking along..... sewing, pressing, sewing, pressing...I am a pressing fanatic. The hotter the better. I start to press and I pull up my iron and all I see are giant wet marks. Holding up the iron and tipping it got water streaming out of the holes!!
Yep, it died. Right in the middle of sewing! My Sunbeam wonder with the 12 foot cord was dead. 12 feet people, I measured!
So doing what any respectable quilter would do, I put on my shoes and off I went. Nothing at Walmart was suitable, and luckily I went past our Linen's and Things and in there were the Rowena's. I got the best iron EVER!!
I was nervous about not having a teflon finish on the bottom but I shouldn't have been. This baby glides on air...hence the Air Glide name on the plate. It's even hotter than the other one and I'm not even using steam at the moment! Look how the bottom sparkles!
It only has a 7 1/2 foot cord but you can't get everything. I almost got the one above this one but it didn't seem worth and extra $30 bucks and I'm seriously satisfied with this model. if you need a new iron, I'd recommend this little wonder with the aqua blue belly. Just fabulous!
