Over the weekend, my mid-grade, fancy iron started to smell of smoke. That’s not a good sign, so I put off sewing until I could find a suitable replacement.
I routinely (once a year or so) need a new iron. I’m not sure what it is about the method or frequency of use, but my irons have a short lifespan. I hope that will change, because I did the unthinkable. I bought the least expensive model I could find!!!
This iron is the heaviest one I’ve used in 20 years. It’s called “The Classic”, and it was indeed, the least expensive one I could find. I’m actually a little excited to iron now, since it works so well. Hopefully I can use this iron more wisely? We’ll see about that one! =}
