My mother was great at sewing. She knew, and all of us should know, that the iron is our best friend. Her irons lasted forever.
My 2 irons don't get hot enough for me anymore. One is peeling of all things. One is badly stained from using water in it. So I went iron shopping and picked up this little travel iron. It will be good if I go to a retreat. So far, so good. It's light and easy to handle.
