So there I was, finishing a new quilt top, when tragedy struck.  Well maybe not a tragedy because I wasn’t that upset, but it was sure inconvenient!

I dropped my nice Rowenta iron. I’m wasn’t upset because I haven’t been able it put water in her for the last two years without her leaking everywhere.

So yesterday I went shopping for her replacement. I decided to stick with Rowenta, which may surprise you as my last one leaked. Well, if we are being honest, this was not the first time she had hit the ground so it probably wasn’t entirely her fault…

I decided to upgrade to Rowenta Pro Master. My mom has one and loves it, plus I’ve always heard that the best Rowentas are the ones marked “Made in Germany” and this one is!

I haven’t tried her out yet, I worked in my yard for an hour and a half yesterday and didn’t have the energy to get in the sewing room, but today I plan to break her in!

Happy Monday and Happy Sewing Everyone!

  1. I’ve dropped my Rowenta more times than I would like to admit, and when I finally do it one too many times I’ll be buying another just like it; they are great irons! I hope your new one works well for you.

    Oops probably not good words to use here in the trying her out dept! LOL!

  3. In spite of them leaking (what iron doesn’t) I am still a huge fan of Rowenta Irons also. I’m anxious to hear how you like the new one. So jealous your weather is nice enough to work in your yard. Our ground is still covered in snow. 🙁

    I’m always knocking my iron off the ironing board. I only buy cheap ones because I can go through about 3 a year

    Looks like it has a nice size base, so maybe it won’t hit the floor as often 😉

    My iron has hit the floor a time or two! Congratulations on your new purchase. I’ll bet it’s a match made in heaven!

    I’m glad you found one you like. I look forward to hearing how you like it on an ongoing basis.

    Oh, I’m going with Rowenta next time I’m buying one too. I heard only good things about it. I currently have Tefal just in case you wonder 😉 Have fun with yours!
