I know by now most of you are tired of hearing me say I love to iron. But I do. I even got to iron some of Hank's shirts last week, and rework their ironing board so their future ironing is easier.
I know that I wrote about the old mangle, or IronRite, that my mom used to have...it looked like this. And it was just the coolest thing. See the little knee 'pedal' under the base? That's how you would lower or raise the roller, which would press the material against the very hot base. So cool...I cannot begin to tell you how I loved that thing. How I wanted it moved from my mom's house to mine but at that point we were living in an apartment and there was no room. But it is still a fond memory.
Yesterday as I was checking my emails, I found this from Ken's sewing machine company, which is where I ordered my serger. This is the deal of the day. I suppose you'd have to say it's a new and improved mangle...and it comes with a stand free if you buy today. Well, I am not buying it today, or tomorrow but it was great to see that such a thing is still out there.
So if there are any of you out there, with lots of money, and love to iron, love to have professional creases, this is the item for you.
