Reliable Iron! (Birthday Giveaway #7)

Remember many moons ago when I found an ORANGE iron (for my NEO-Never Enough Orange-Sewing Studio)?!?!  I am continuously in love my orange-y goodness.  She's so hot and steamy.  Seriously, though, it's been 4 years and she is still steaming up a storm.  I don't think I've ever owned an iron this long.  I don't believe my mom ever did, either, come to think of it.  Maybe I'm just really hard on irons, but my Reliable is just that, reliable! ;)
Sadly, they don't have any Velocitys in stock right now, but my Reliable lady, Kimberly, said they have one of these two beauties for a giveaway!!  I am in love with the Maven's ($199 MSRP) cork handle and cloth cord!!  Such a sleek thing, isn't she?

Maven-100IS.png

The other option is this bad boy.  The Senza ($299 MRSP).  Sounds sultry.  What do you think.  Can you handle this much iron?
Senza-200DS.png
They both come with a water tank (I know! So fancy!) with an option for continuous steam!  I don't know, I'd probably have to actually read the user's manual to learn all the fanciness capacity.  Are you getting as excited about an iron as I am?
  • Leave a comment to be entered into the drawing.  What kind of relationship do you have with ironing?
  • Please include your email address in your comment.  Write it nobigdillblog {at} gmail {dot} com if you're more comfortable that way.
  • Giveaway winners will be announced Monday, August 3rd.
  • Good Luck!
  • PS I have one more giveaway tomorrow.  You definitely don't want to miss it!! ;)

  1. Those look amazing. I am, generally speaking, a no-ironing kind of girl EXCEPT when it comes to sewing. Why is it that I enjoy ironing giant cuts of fabric but I hate ironing pants? roundtheworldgirl gmail com.

  4. I mostly iron only for sewing or crafts. Mine is junked up from the crafts part though. Iron good fabric at your own risk with my iron! It'd be great to have 2 for their separate uses!

  26. My iron is in a sad state. It's been dropped more than once so the nice pointy end is a flattened mess and I resort to a spray bottle for wrinkles because the steam abilities are dismal. A new fancy iron would make me very happy. caity_long {at} hotmail {dot} com

I LOVE pressing when I'm sewing (which is so weird), because I just love to see how fabulous seams look when they are nice and flat.

  74. We've had our iron for (at least) ten years, and it acts its age. I have a love-hate relationship with ironing, as it's necessary for week-to-week activities, but it's a real challenge to use. We always end up scorching the ironing board, or steaming an innocent bystander, or burning ourselves- all while treating the iron nicely, and making sure there's enough water. It drives us nuts.
    Have an amazing birthday!

  93. I LOVE to iron! Before kids I ironed EVERYthing (even my sheets and sometimes my hair). Now I only iron craft projects or nothing. If my iron had eyeballs I'd be embarrassed to make eye contact. I've neglected it so badly. The poor thing has been bumped and dropped too many times to count. And with a broken handle and cracked body it still heats up to whatever (if any) tasks I put in front of it. Good iron, poorly mis treated :( If I was lucky enough to win a new one I'd have to respectfully retire my current one. hcaryl80@hotmail.com

  119. I really enjoy ironing. Waaaaay more than folding and putting away laundry. I also enjoy ironing things like cotton tshirts and my sheets (which probably sounds weird, and there are certainly weeks I don't have that time!) So anyway, this is a pitiful thing to admit but the iron I use cost me $10 as a newlywed 13 years ago. It's the most basic and boring iron around I'm sure, but it just doesn't die and it gets really hot, so I've never upgraded.

  125. I generally enjoy ironing - especially as I'm sewing, because it ends up looking more professional. I *hate* sewing baby clothes with, say, ruffles that continually get wrinkly, because it's hard to maneuver that small amount of fabric.

    I've had the same iron for almost 14 years - the same one I got from our wedding registry. :) It certainly doesn't have all the bells and whistles as the irons you mentioned, but it's sufficed! A happy new gadget always makes chores more fun.

  136. I've always felt that sewing is more ironing than actually sewing. I've blown through an iron a year, and I'd love a reliable one. I don't mind ironing, but my feet get tired when I do it all day!

  140. I don't like to iron, but I do iron my pillow cases and top part of flat sheets. When sewing, I do press every seam but I don't count that as "ironing"! lorianne129@gmail.com

  146. I love ironing as long as I get a nice firm crease, otherwise, not so fun; my current iron is missing its button but still works o.k., and my husband just installed a great over the door ironing board to accommodate for our lack of space--now to cover it with more padding and a better cover!

  159. I love ironing and I love how ironed clothes look. I am really busy right now mothering six small children, so I iron less than I'd like. My ironing board is semi-permanently up in my dining room as a testament to my desire to use it more often. I am looking forward to my oldest daughter-age 6- learning to iron in a few years so maybe she can help me out!

  162. It's a LOVE - HATE thing. Oddly enough I love to iron, especially pressing as I go when I sew, but even just ironing my husband's shirt gives me a little zen. Unfortunately the miser in me never lets me spend much on an iron and each and everyone of my assortment of cheap irons drives me nuts in one way or another!!

  179. My husband bought the iron I currently use. It it tall and shiny with a non-stick heating element but the steam is terrible and it doesn't get hot enough. But I did drop it from the board onto my concrete floor and it still works so I suppose that's a win for me? The cork one looks amazing though! jessicaoliveto@gmail.com

  182. I have had the same iron since college (13+ years). It used to have duct tape on it, but that kept coming off, so now it's super-glued. It still works for all my sewing and ironing needs! I just don't know what I'd do with a new fancy iron! mandiprout80 @ gmail {dot} com

  188. I have a nonexistent relationship with irons (read: I don't have one) my brother was the main user of our iron when he moved out a few months ago, and took it with him. I have been on the search for sales, but haven't found anything I've fallen for in my price range, but that senza is a BEAUTY. I'd love to be able to iron while sewing.
