    Help, I am looking for a small iron to have at my sewing table with me. I have the really small one that looks like a triangle (Can't remember the manufacturer) and I even bought the travel Rowenta but I'm not that thrilled with that. I am also looking for that thing that puts the rhinestones on the quilts, I have seen them at quilts shows but don't remember the name of it. If anyone could help with either of these I would apprecite it.

    I have both. I love the travel Rowenta iron. Don't know of any other that is between the travel and full size irons.

    I have the rinestone heat set tool also but can't remember the name of it off-hand. It's really nice. The swarovski crystals are nice for it. And they sparkle more than rinestones. I got mine at the Paducah Quilt Show but I think they have them at Joann's or Michaels.

    Check out flea markets, yard sales etc. I bought 2 very small irons (not the clover type) that are probably from the 40's-50's. One is steam capable, the other is a dry iron. Cost me $2 each. Size wise, they are perfect to take to classes. And boy, do they get hot and best of all, no auto shut off! :lol:

    I am with Melinda. I got a dry iron and love it. No incontinence, no auto shut off, and as hot as it can be. Light weight and small. I got it from homedepot.com.

    Well there is the clover one to put on rhinestones with. Is that what you are looking for? I have another one too because I thought I had loaned out the other one and then I found it. It is a Kandi's Professional Touch. This is the one from the quilt stores.

    (ps) Lol incontinence LOL, good way to put it maride, that gave me a chuckle this morning...

    I was just at Joanns and in the one notions aisle they have a medium size iron, not the tiny one , and not full sized. I think they called it a craft iron for like $9.99. I didn't look close so don't know any more details about it, sorry

    I was thinking of that too, but could not remember the name.

    No its not the BeDazzler, you need heat to get the rhinestones on.

    Gramof6: Do yourself a favor and go to http/www.ThreadArt.com to buy your crystals. I saw that your site charges $11.00 for 144 crystals. I pay $5.99 for 10 gross which is 1444 crystals. Look this up and you will be pleasantly surprised. I have beaded an entire jacket with these Sworaski crystals and it is beautiful. You won't be dissapointed. My hot fix tool is from Kandi .com and it has a shutoff button. It comes with 7 or 8 tips. I use 2 tools to hot fix my crystals, one for the 10mm and one for the 16mm. Let me know when you see this site if you are not in awe of the price. Just a bit of help to save money for a fellow quilter and craftsman. Arline
