Sigh.....a couple of minutes ago, I bought a Reliable V100 steam iron off Ebay for my sewing room!

And it is not that I needed an iron, I had just bought a Shark 1568 steam iron on clearance from Walmart for my master bedroom with an over the door fold up ironing board.

My old GE steam iron will live in the guest bedroom with an over the door fold up ironing board.

My niece recently moved into her first apartment a few months ago, and I in an excess of generosity gave her my best [although cheap & lightweight] ironing board. Then as life often does, I decided to start sewing seriously again and I rediscovered this site. I was frustrated with the instability of my beloved but broken vintage wood and iron ironing board in my sewing room.

I started eyeing my niece's ironing board and regretting my generous zeal. My sister nipped that idea in the bud and I kept my eye open for a bargain.

Desperately, I looked at the ironing boards leaning against the side of the building at my favorite thrift shop. The sturdiness of the first one caught my eye. It was a lot heavier than the new versions they sell today, and wonder of wonders, the leg supports have steel rods reinforcing them on all points. The manager came out while I was debating, and her comment that she would sell it to me for $1 clinched the deal.

Then I had to find a portable ironing board that was not tippy for my children's sewing class. Again the thrift shop came through with a table top board with a built in iron rest for $1. I have a couple of cheap steam irons that will do for the kids.

Do you see what you folks have done to me?

I was a normal person minding her own business before I started lusting after sewing related stuff like this. Is this a form of SMAD?

I totally understand and sympathize, when I started sewing again 5 years ago, I only had 1 tub of fabric and 4 sewing machines. Now I have 12 sewing machines and at least 12 tubs of fabric, as well as a tabletop ironing board (which I really love btw), several ironing hams, overflowing button stash, 2 dress forms and .... well all I can say is run now, log off and don't look back, or embrace the madness.

I have taken the bait, swallowed the hook, and I can't break the line.

I'm just saying........you guys are a bad influence on me and I am hooked like crack cocaine.

I bought some of these years ago when I was into cross stitch they are fabulously sharp still.

Oh uh, see what I mean, really it's just not safe here.

I ought to report this post for contributing to the delinquency of a senior citizen!

Tempting me unmercilessly to get rid of my huge collection of Gingher scissors to replace them with Kais is a felony! I won't, I won't, I won't...........

once you buy one you will never go back to your collection of gingher scissor ever again. They are light and fit the hand and cut like a knife going through butter. That is how smooth they cut.
Now don't you wish you had a pair.

Where are Kais made? Japan, maybe, or Korea? I believe Ginghers are made in the US. The price for the Kai 8" dressmaking shears is a little less than what I paid for my Ginghers in the same size; I really like the handles on the Kais.

KAI scissors are made in Japan.
The black handle KAI scissors and shears are made of fine stainless steel with vanadium. KAI Scissors are hand polished and balanced allowing for fatigue-free cutting on all types of fabrics. Soft ergonomic handle grips and hardened stainless steel blades offer superior cutting action.

These versatile scissors can cut lightweight fabric including silk without fabric slippage on the blades or cut multi-layers of fleece, denim, cotton and polyblend fabrics. KAI original scissors, KAI dressmaking shears, KAI 5000 series, and the KAI 7000 series scissors continue to be a favorite in the sewing and quilting industry.
Don't you want one!!!!!!!
