I love to quilt. I think I said that in the previous post. What I do not love is maneuvering a hot steam iron over freshly sewn seams, and finger pressing just isn't enough to flatten fabrics down properly, particularly when I am piecing small strips. I asked Tom to make me a wood iron, and he has obliged! He made up one for me (which I love) and another half dozen for you! These are all approx. 6.5 inches long, and turned from Persimmon! We've added a Quilting category to the shop page where we will list finished quilts and quilting tools (I'm bugging him for a good seam ripper!)

Wood Iron for quilting/sewing
Linda asked for a nice wood iron for pressing seams, and Tom answered! A wood iron is used to open up seams - it works much better than finger pressing seams open, and as a precursor to using the steam iron, makes for much cleaner, better seams! (And keeps that hot steam from the steam iron away from your fingers!)
This group is crafted from Persimmon. Each on is hand turned and polished to a silky smooth finish. Approx. 6.5 inches long.
Handcrafted. Made in Vermont.
