Re: Happy ending for Joann coupon.

Linda, I think you got lucky on that one. Most of the coupons say (in fine
print) that they cannot be used for irons and several other things. They can
be used on sale items, but not at the sale price, if using the 50% off, the
price reverts to original.
I'm not perpetually mad a Joann's. it's a good place to buy batting, books,
etc especially using the coupons. But that company does have some quirks,
doesn't it?

We have a discount store near here that sells refurbished Rowentas for about $25. My Bernina still works ok, but I am sometimes tempted.

You are certainly right. I would never have tried to buy it if I knew it wasn't on the sale. I guess I should wear my reading glasses when reading the fine print. We just have to learn how to play the game. :-)

Sam's Club has a Rowenta iron that my best friend bought when her JoAnns Rowenta bit the dust (She never empties the water out and so it started leaking). She likes it as well as the first one and she paid a lot less.

Um, Ann, you could try not putting water in it?
Seriously, I had no idea what a difference an iron could make. Now, my Rowenta is heavy, but I never get tired using it. It does the work for me. I have never scorched ANYTHING since I started using it. The temperature stays constant. My model, which I don't think they make anymore, has a removable water reservoir so it makes it easy to empty out. Great steam when I need it.
What I am searching for is an older iron with no steam holes at all. There are some circumstances when doing crafts or just iron on interfacing, that the indentations from the holes shows on the opposite side. I sure didn't think an iron like that would be so hard to find.

Me too! I am thinking about that "crafty" iron, not the clover one, but the one that's a bit bigger, maybe the size of a deck of cards...oh, and some travel irons don't have steam,...but they're like hens' teeth! (rare!)

I just got a catalog yesterday (heheheh remember the Google catalog site?) that has that iron in it. I wonder if it gets hot enough. Somebody here has mentioned using it. Can't remember offhand who. And I HAVE a travel iron. Gets hot enough to iron - NOTHING! I still pack it along and still cuss it if I have to iron something. Cindy

Lol. I keep thinking I'm going to get up early one Saturday and do that. Trouble is, I stay up waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too late on Friday nights playing in my sewing room to get up. I HATE mornings. I wish they would hold rummage sales in the evenings.
And I try to keep this a secret around here? But I enjoy ironing. There is just something so satisfying about taking a wrinkled garment and making it look so good! Anyway, I would much rather iron than do most other household chores. Like cooking. And cleaning. It's like mowing the grass (which I also enjoy). You can't be doing anything else, while you're ironing or mowing.

hehehehehehehhe. Try this: instead of filling the water reservoir, get a plant water mister and lightly spray the garments instead of using steam. That's what I do a lot of the time. In fact, since I got this iron, I don't starch much at all any more.

In article ,
I finally solved that problem. I had this $10 black and decker iron that worked just great and ended up having steam for quilting and such because I iron regular clothing too. So...I decided I could really afford another $10 iron. Now I have one in the basement for quilting and on upstairs for clothes.
I bet you're worth $10 too!

Cindy, that iron gets Plenty hot!! It's got a temperature dial on it, but guess what? It heats up too so you be careful if you get one of those, when you go to turn it off. It too, comes with a dinky stand that turns over more than it sits upright, so I would glue the stand to a block of wood or ceramic tile.
I have had one for over a year and I love it. It's just the right size for miniature blocks and paper piecing.

Well I set it out beside some nice wrinkly jeans, and it just TOTALLY ignored them! sighs... so I guess it doesn't :P
However, I did a test with it against my Black 'n Decker Wal-Mart special travel iron. The mini-iron (when forced into service by a mean Elena) did iron the wrinkles out, but it took a little effort, and if you have weak wrists, I wouldn't advise it. B&D won hands down for ironing jeans. Add in the fact that it takes up less room than the other iron, and you get steam or a spray if you want it out of the travel iron.
I DO like my mini iron. It's great for those 4" log cabin blocks.
