Top 4 Irons For Sewing & Pressing


Ironing is an essential part of sewing. The correct tools help get the job done right the first time. Proper pressing can make all the difference in any "home-made" garment. You can buy an iron at any big box store. I recommend that you make sure you have steam available to help setting construction elements of what you sew.
