My New Iron

My iron went on the fritz the other day and that was all I needed to buy this baby. I have had my eye on this Oliso Pro Iron for a couple of years, I saw it demonstrated at Quilt Market. It's awesome. See how it's above the surface? When you touch the handle it lowers to iron and when you let go, the iron raises back up. No need to lift it up on it's back. My neck and shoulders are a mess and this guy has helped lessen the lifting. It's probably not right to be so excited about an iron, but you sewing folks get it, right?

And then because I am such a nerd...  right after I got my iron we happen to be having a party. I set up a table on the back porch so I could demonstrate how cool it was. Granted, none of them sew, and they could believe that I would spend so much on an iron, but none the less, the all played with it. It was a hit.

Ok, back to playing with my new toy,

  1. Only crafters would post ... and read ... about an iron! Love it!

  2. And if it were my iron I would be doing exactly the same thing. Then I'd leave it on the counter to admire and show anyone and everyone who stopped by. My mother used to.make a game of it with the neighbor.ladies. They called it their show and tell afternoon get togethers.

  3. I must agree with Jane B...only crafters would read a post about an iron, and take time to comment on it. I rarely ever even use an iron with my crafts, and I stopped to read this one. I'm the girl using an iron she bought from Goodwill!! Happy crafting Jennifer, and enjoy your new iron.

  4. I had the first Oliso and loved it, unfortunately while moving my ironing board I wasn't paying attention and the iron fell flatly onto the floor now when plugged in just makes noises like it wants to "rest" but won't heat up. To have it serviced by Oliso costs about as much as a new low end model. Thinking about a new one but I do regular ironing as well as sewing/quilting pressing and don't know which model would be best (TG1100 or TG1600 steam vents are considerably different). How are you liking yours?
