Let’s talk irons! This is a touchy but very important subject in the world of sewing and quilting. You can buy an iron at pretty much any price point! I’ve seen $6 irons and even $600 irons and the one you end up with will be a matter of personal preference (and budget!).  In this video I share with you my favorite irons to use for my different sewing and quilting projects and I make sure to point out the features of each that make them my go-to irons.

Sewing and quilting require a somewhat different approach to pressing so I like one iron a lot better than the others for piecing my patchwork units together because there is a lot of stop and go in piecing.  I cut, then sew, then press. Cut, sew, press. Over and over and over again.  On the other hand when I’m making a top or a dress I need an iron with great steam capabilities and one that will stay hot longer. Those are just some of the features I consider when I’m buying an iron. To here my complete take on the irons pictured below, click HERE to watch the video.
