The next time you pick up your Rowenta Iron or whatever brand you have, think about the early quilters using this. The "sad iron" that you heated on the wood burning stove and then pressed your
fabric when it got hot. It weighs a lot as well. But the funny thing is........
The trivet it sits on is named "Sensible"?
This old cast iron string holder is going home with me. For some reason I love old cast iron pieces and I can see this hanging in my studio with a ball of yarn in it.
