    I have been looking for a Clover Iron. It is one which has a point on the ironing end, and is good for points, and general small places. I have looked at Joann's and shops outside of Kansas City.
    If anyone has any suggestions, I would like to hear.
    Thanks!

    You may be able to get one at Walmart. I believe I have seen them there before. I had one at one time, used it once or twice then got rid of it but that was before I started doing quilts. Now I wish I still had it.

    Are you talking about the Clover Mini Iron? They sell it on the Joann's website. http://www.joann.com/joann/search/se...irons&psize=48

    I've seen them at Walmart, too. You can also go online at JoAnn's. I love mine!

    I bought one thinking it would be good for seams. Actually it is. I don't like the iron rest for it and for the most part don't use it any more. I use my regular iron 99% of the time.

    I love mine and upgraded to the one with interchangeable tips since I also love to applique. I gave my regular one to a friend. They are absolutely wonderful when paper piecing too.

    You might try www.jhittlesewing.com. I think they carry them.

    Funny thing. I have had one for a year, and never took it out of the package...maybe I'll be inspired to use it now that I see how much everyone likes theirs!

    Mine came from JoAnns, they are in the quilting notions section at our store, they could probably order one for you if they don't have them in stock...Good luck...I love mine for piecing.

    I would use the 40% coupon from JoAnn's, you get no discount at Walmart

    Hancock's has them. I got one for Xmas, thought I would love it, but I don't. It seems to be either too hot, or not hot enough, no inbetween. I also find it strange to hold and iron, I would rather use a small travel iron.

    I'm with you. The Clover iron is so expensive. I bought a cheap travel iron at Walmart, and it works just great. Lately, tho, I seem to be using my regular iron most of the time. I chain piece and usually have quite a few seams to press at one time. I need the added exercise of getting up and going to my pressing board, too. (LOL)

    The Clover one with interchangeable tips is the best and ecen better with a Joanns coupon! There is a 50% coupon out there right now.
