Decided to try to get back into sewing and I think I have figured out one of the reasons why I haven't been as ambitious about sewing lately. Tools. You have to have good tools. My little Janome bit the dust weeks ago. She needed a new motor. I ended up getting a replacement, a Janome DC1050. It isn't a bad machine, but just not as smooth as the little Janome Jem Platinum 760 I've had for five years and have used to made over 100 quilts. I got it fixed and today is the first time I have used it. Wow. This little machine is my favorite. Smooth. Quiet. Even.
Now, one question for quilters out there. What is the best iron for piecing? I am using a black and decker classic, and it gets very not, but is horrible, because it constantly grabs the fabric and irons wrinkles in when I am trying to iron the pieces.
Got a gift card and some cash that is wanting to be used for my hobby. Please give me your iron opinions. Thanks!
