Nothing Like a Good Steam Iron

When I teach quilting classes I am often asked whether or not I use steam when pressing my seams.  I always use steam.  Of course if I'm pressing a bias seam, I need to be careful not to stretch the seam.  A good friend of mine remembered me once saying "there is nothing like a good steam iron."  She saw the little beauty shown below and purchased it for a birthday gift for me.  I'm so lucky!!!!!

The following pictures of steam irons were taken at the Chute Lake Resort that Doug and I stayed at recently.  The Resort has a wonderful assortment of antiques, ranging from steam irons to linesman tools, and lots in between.
