But here are some really cool new tools I got at the sewing expo that travels around the U.S. It goes to smaller cities. First up is this "iron shoe" which is a piece of Teflon that you strap over your iron. It enables you to put it on the hottest setting and you can iron polyester without melting it! Now I use my $10, 20-year old Walmart iron with great results (it doesn't fit over my sewing iron because of the cord reel).
Then there's this seam ripper which is really a razor blade they use in surgery. It's really sharp and fast.
I love finding a good tool!
