Best Mini Iron For Sewing is very nice product. I recently bought this iron to use on a week-long sewing retreat. Space is limited and it is nice to have one’s own iron to avoid waiting in line to press.

I set this up next to my sewing machine using the Omnigrid ironing and cutting mat station. I thought I would only use it for the two twin size quilt tops I was making.

The blocks required a lot of trimming and pressing. This iron worked excellently. It generates a lot of steam for holding only 1.4 ounces of water (the water pitcher is the cutest little thing, like a toy).

After I finished piecing the quilts, I decided to use it on the garments I was sewing. And I’m glad I did! The iron works well with tailor’s tools like the seam roll, tailor’s ham, and seam stick.

I sewed all week with this iron and made four dresses, 7 pairs of men’s briefs, 12 pair of ladies’ briefs, two stuffed dolls, and a skirt. All using this iron (though I did resort to a regular iron for the long sides of the twin quilt borders). I like the long cord. Also great is the LACK of an automatic shut off.

You can turn the knob to “off” or unplug it. Overall, this is a great product and an excellent resource for sewing retreats and classes.
