    Default Jordan Fabrics' Iron They Use

    I e-mailed Donna yest. & asked about the iron they use. It really whooshes when they steam press fabric. It is a Rowenta ProPrecision steam iron with the water reservoir in the base, not the iron. So now you know.

    I just purchased the Rowena iron steam station after contacting Donna at Jordan Fabrics--I asked how it held up in their shop and she said they were very dependable .... I LOVE it.....it doesn't automatically shut off, the water reservoir kept the iron at the ready for the 6 hours I was using it, the iron is dry until you push the steam button and then it gives out steam under pressure (my grandfather had a dry cleaner shop and it reminded me of the days I would play in the back of the shop listening to the irons watching the steam forms ironing the clothes--happy memories). My first quilt done with it has beautiful seams and they go in the direction I want---and NO LEAKING AT ALL.....I got mine at bed bath and beyond with the 20% off coupon --it was $299 so I saved $60......My Oliso cost $169 and my Reliable cost $199 so for the price, it was well worth it.....it's made in France, not China. Mine isRowenta DG8520 Perfect Steam 1800-Watt Eco Energy Steam Iron.

    Just wondering - what didn't you like about your Oliso? Which one do you have? I have the yellow one and so far I love it.

    Did anyone notice that in last week's tutorial -- not Fri., but a week ago Fri. -- Jenny was using a weird shaped Panasonic iron? Her pink Oliso was back last Fri.

    I can't justify spending that much for an iron. The last time I shopped for a new iron, I found a Black & Decker on clearance sale for $4.99. It's working just fine.

    MY local quilt shop uses a couple of heavy Black and decker irons, that we all love to use when we are there sewing because they are so heavy, they do all the work for you. No steam neccessary.
    I have a Rowenta, with steam capabilities, but I'm not doing it. I'll stick with Best Press and Faultless.

    I have had 2 Rowenta's and they both leaked and did not last long. I LOVE love love my cordless Panasonic! best iron I ever owned and no cord to get in the way.

    I just wish I could find an inexpensive, light weight iron that really heated. The newest one I bought that had all those qualities, is a dud. Kathy
