I saw a iron in an advertisement some months ago that had a teflon plate -- so absolutely nothing would stick to it. It was about $125, but now I can't find the ad anywhere. Does anyone know where to buy such an iron?

Sorry canīt help you with the iron but you can get teflon sheets to put over your work a lot cheaper than the iron.

I used to have a teflon plate that fits over your iron it had springs that slipped over the based and had holes in it to let the steam thru...it was great for years, not sure why I still don't have it??? :roll: :? :lol:

I saw a teflon iron that locked into a 'base' to give it stability. I can't remember the brand name, but they were selling it at Harry's Vacuum Shop in Sarnia. I know that would be a trip over the border for you; maybe you can find one in a vacuum shop locally.

PS: I was admiring your painted works on your website; they are really beautiful.

thank you all for the tips. i do have the teflon sheet but with the iron you wouldn't have to keep moving the sheet and it sounds so simple to use. also have the plate that fits over the iron but it doesn't fit over my present iron! i can call Sarnia and ask about that iron they have there. guess i will do that.
thanks again.

Yes, I have a T-Fall Ultraglide Turbo that I wouldn't trade for any other iron. I love it! and it wasn't very expensive.

I have a T- Fal too. Mine is self cleaning and I got it at Sears. It wasn't expensive either and I love it! Nothing sticks to it.

You can clean the bottom of your iron with a used dryer sheet too.

do you mean that you can use Angelina fibers and they don't stick to the plate? how about the fusible web that you buy by the yard?
thanks for the info!

For fusing, I use an applique pressing sheet. I got mine at the quilt shop.

The iron doesn't slide very well on it but it is fantastic!!

I used the fibers in a class, and we used this applique sheet.
