    yes i do and will also use it when I sew and do machine embroidery it looks great!

  4. Joyce says

    My iron is 20 years old, a new one would press all those little nooks and crannies that appear in all my projects from quiltingto crafting. It wuld be a joy to use.

  5. says

    Well, My grand mother, who came to US. in 1911 as 1 year old kid with her mother, got into the seamstress business & was doing it for her whole entire life. By the time I arrive to America, she almost for got how to speak, write & communicate in our native languages, which are Ukrainian & Russian. After she start teaching me all what she new, I made / with my wife’s help/ my own first small size quilt, which we still have above our bed.
    I will steam, press & iron the edges and other imperfect places on the final product we finish, to see the good quality of craftsmenship !

    Thank you for your time to read & for your consideration in that matter.

    Truly Yours,


  6. Lan Hahn says

    Oops my email is wrong above. Sorry. I still would love to win this iron as it looks great and I could use a new one. Thanks.

  7. Peggy Clyde says

    I have done some quilting, but you should always use an iron when sewing any project. Thanks.

  8. Linda Rielly says

    Yes I have made many quilts over the last 30 years, but I became a seamstress , with my own home based business. It just happens I’m in need of a new iron. Mine is 13 years old and is cracking in the handle and getting a small leak. Thankyou for this opportunity to win this iron.

  9. Minnie C. says

    When I was a very young girl (9-14) I would sit by my mom and stitch the quilt design with all the other ladies. I did all the things my mom and her four dear friends did. I enjoyed all the different crafts mmmmmy mom engaged in. Mom did a lot of crocheting. I have a chest full of crochetted items. I have different sizes and colors in table tops. Thus, the iron would be used to iron my crochetted dresser tops, end table tops, fromal dinner table tops, and coffee table tops. Thank you.

  10. Edna Grubb says

    I am a grandmother who started quilting 34 years ago. My family and friends enjoy the gifts of handworked quilts and I still use a traditional quilting frame (the ole’ traditional hard work).
    I love new patterns and quick techniques. A good steam iron is a must and makes the final quilt project so much prettier. It also makes peicing and patterening a lot faster.

  11. Cindy hatfield says

    I am taking a class at Joann Fabrics on how to quilt. So when I am done this will be much needed.

  12. Molly A says

    I’ve dabbled with quilting but never completed one. I’d love to be able to learn how to finish one. This professional iron would be a big help!

  13. Marsha Williams says

    I have quilted some, but I sew and do alterations. This iron would be great for pressing seam. I would love to win it!

  14. says

    I have a beginning quilting set, but it only has the very basics. I can’t wait to get a sewing machine so I can REALLY start learning!! This would really help me on my way!

  15. Susan Herke says

    Definitely for quilting!!! Then my husband would get my other ‘good’ (but not nearly this good!) iron. He could retire the old iron. Yep….. I may iron hours for quilting, but he irons his own shirts. See why we’ve been married or 40 years?

  16. Helen says

    I have quilted in the past. Since my room is very limited I may try to make a pillow or new placemats for my spring/summer table.

  17. Robin Chabot says

    I am a very new quilter, but I love to sew. You can’t sew without using an iron and mine broke.

  18. MarleneGarrison says

    I’ve always wanted to learn how to quilt. It would really to have such a nice iron when I get started. =]
