    Nice video, I need a new iron, as my current one keeps shutting off even as I’m ironing! I have to unplug it and count to ten before I can plug it back in again!!! 👎🏻

    I enjoyed your video. I have been sewing and quilting since the late 60’s. My career job didn’t allow much time for sewing. It’s alway a great value to refresh techniques and see if there’s anything new. Liked the iron and I will have to update later. Please enter me in your give away. Quilting hasn’t changed much. Although the fabric just keeps coming, back then you didn’t have much of a choice and it’s fun today but I cannot see how we have so many different designs, quality of fabric, it’s really nice. Speciality rulers also helps tremendously and I’ve been watching Missouri star demonstrations on fast piecing. Gosh I used to handpiece blocks and it took for ever. Keep up the good work. Thank you so much.
