    I have the exact same mini iron with attachments. Don't use it a lot but when I need it, I need it. I use a pint jar for a stand - that way you never reach for the wrong end.

    I have to say that I have had my Rowenta for almost 20 years and have never had a day's trouble with it!
    I think they have lemons just like anything else! I'll keep mine for as long as it works and performs well for me

    I use the mini iron all the time for applique! Works great and stays really hot. Forgot about my Joann's scratch off...lol.

    I only use it for paper piecing which works great.

    I got a 60% off too, the first time ever. I bought 10 yards of fabric.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Dolph I would love to see some of your quilts - you always have a unique perspective on these technique and tools questions. Angelina? Isn't she the ballerina mouse in the children's book?

    I plan on doing some appliqué (never done before) and finishing my Dear Jane so I got one with a coupon. I can't see the need for all the attachments. I got the simple one with a coupon and spent about $12.00. I think I will use a cup to stand it in not the stand that come with it. I saw a lady demonstrating appliqué and she used one. Worked like a charm. I tried needle turned and it didn't work for me.

    I bought a mini sunbeam steam iron at Target yesterday for $10. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks similar to the ones on Amazon that cost $25.
