An iron emergency!

Yesterday I was happily sewing when all of a sudden I smelled smoke. My iron was smoking - not figuratively, but literally, and then two of my smoke alarms went off in the house and scared me to death. Boy, they are LOUD!!

I think a little lint got trapped in the gap between the iron part, and the body, and started to burn - very scary. I feel very lucky that it didn't catch on fire and burn my house down. Anyway, the iron is now toast and will be sent back to the manufacturer, and a replacement sent to me. Until then though, no machine sewing for me. Fortunately I have a lot of hand quilting to catch up on!

  1. My Rowena did the very same thing on Tuesday. Very annoying because it's less than two months old and I didn't keep the receipt! I'm glad you are getting a replacement.
