Thanks for all the info on this one guys, have been considering this one, well actually considering it for a christmas present from hubby :mrgreen: . I thought it might be useful specially for applique work, But it's alot of dosh here $70, they have to be ordered in special and you don't get to try before you buy, so the info is very helpful thanks :D

I just bought mine with my 50% off at JoAnn's.... Haven't opened it yet, but my friend warned me about it being very hot and also burning mats, ironing boards, material , etc. I like the idea of putting it in a coffee mug. Thanks....

Just an update on the mini iron, you might find it interesting. I found out the other day what might be another reason why they are so much dearer here. They have to make a different model to suit our regulations and it also has to have different wireing to suit the power here. Becuse it's such a small market, I suppose it has to be worth their while.

I think I might be getting one for Christmas :wink: , cause Hubby went shopping at neeedlecraft :P But I was good, I haven't peeked ......yet :lol:

For those of you that are worried about burning things, get a jar, small, or a drinking glass and use that to put your iron in between each use. I use it and even carry it to my applique class. Works real good. I tried a cup but that didn't work so well, so went to a taller glass. Hope this helps, I still love mine.

CAUTION IF YOU HAVE KIDS!!!
I got burned twice last time I used it. Blister healing nicely but still tender.

I like the idea of the taller jar or glass. Maybe that would cover more of the exposed hot area and just leave the handle to grab.

Works great but watch kids and pets too if they are up on your work area. :!:

By all means please watch your little ones and even the bigger ones they could get burned real bad. I have no children at home, but occasionly have a grand kid around. I would be horrified if anything happened to them. I won't even let them in my sewing room because I am afraid that they might get hurt on pins or something. And I have no carpet in there. Over protective? Probably but better safer than sorry. And yes the glass works great.

Here is another little tip.... For those wooden irons that you are talking about??? Take a cloths pin apart and use those for the wooden irons. That isn't my idea, was told to me by my quilting instructor when I first started out. Hope this helps and is a cheap solution.
