    Finally found a Dry Iron!!!!

    I have been looking for a dry iron for quilting as I was tired of trying to iron fabric smooth from the holes in a steam iron. Saw on this board that people had found them and ordered from Vermont Country Store. I had searched their catalogs and website for one and never found one. Recently found it listed again and quickly ordered one, arrived yesterday and I am so pleased with it. Thought I would let you all know in case it had been on your listed of "wants", would make a great Christmas gift. If you are interested it is called Classic Dry Iron and stock number is 42277. Love this board, lovely people willing to help each other, and tons of great ideas and inspirations. Thank you all.

    You can buy it here and get free shipping: http://www.always-free-shipping.com/...-dry-iron.html
    Also Amazon has them in stock too. I love this iron, it's the only one I use. I have a new one for back up in case it is discontinued down the road.

    I'm still using my best friend's Mom's iron (my friend and I are in our mid-70s) - no teflon, no holes, no steam, black and white fabric cover on cord - still hotter than any other iron.
    Another friend, fearing I'd go mad when it died, bought me the VT Country Store iron - which I love and take to retreats, workshops etc.

    I too have bought many irons and been disappointed. I finally remembered that we had mom's old iron in the garage that we had saved for workshop use. (Like the one mentioned with a black and white fabric cord) I drug it out last week and it works great! It actually gets hot! I love that. I absolutely hate the newer irons. I have had some pretty dang expensive ones and they really are stupid in design and heating ability.

    My mom used to have things worked on with they gave up. I wonder if there is anyone around these days that would do this? Crossing my fingers if mine ever gives out. I love this iron!

    I only use a dry iron, if I need moisture I use a little spray bottle of water. It does have holes that sometimes folds over a tiny piece of fabric.

    Serendipity? Thanks to BellaBoo and her link to buying, I finally am getting my dry iron. Kept meaning to, but just put it off. Yesterday, my Rowenta started acting up, ( I know, I know, I can hear all the "told you so's") so was thinking about looking for a new iron today. Problem solved

    I too just scored an iron on sale and with free shipping! Love that free shipping and no sales tax. This is better than any of the black Friday deals I saw.

    I never buy quilting tools unless it is a super deal. That's how I have most all of the them! I searched and waited until I found a Bernina I've been wanting, used, one owner, shop maintained, for less then $500. I saved thousands. LOL Now I'm on a quest to find a sit down machine quilting set up for 1/4 the original price. I'll find it.
