    Oh how I have wished to have one of these irons… especially with the cranky shoulders and stiff fingers I have these days. Perhaps fate will favour me.. perhaps not… one can only dream.

    Discounts on trims! I sew for myself, and do not own a company where i need miles and miles of laced ribbon. I have so much trouble finding decent priced trimming where I am allowed to buy 2 meters. They’ve always seem to have a 15meter minimum or the like. Not ideal for a small budget experimental fashion student : /

    I would love a discount on quality fabrics. It’s hard for me to find nice fabrics for making clothes.

    Can i just say… that iron looks like a beast.

    Discounts on decent fabric, preferably a moderately thick tartan plaid that i can not seem to get my hands on. Or Patterns, probably patterns, by the time a find a nice pattern and make it the fashion has changed.

    this may sound unrelated at first but the best discounts are the ones i get on everyday purchases like groceries and gas…if i can always save on stuff i have to buy all the time then i also always have leftover money for spending on fabric and sewing notions!!

    Ooops. I didn’t share what my favorite/most needed discount is….I do like the convenience to shop online, especially when there is free shipping.

    I used a Rowenta Press & steam iron at a quilt retreat. It was the best iron I’ve ever used.

    It would be great if BurdaStyle teamed up with an online fabric retailer like Fabric.com for discounts; they have some great fabrics, but also notions and patterns too. I also wouldn’t mind discounts from Colette Patterns, Folkwear Sewing Patterns, Sense & Sensibility Patterns, or Wearing History.

    I love it when I can get 50% off items like cutting boards, rotary cutter, etc..

    I would like to find a discount on an adjustable dress form. It’s one thing that I don’t have and can’t afford. The other discount I would dike to see is on thread. I use a lot of colorful fabrics and the cost of matching thread begins to add up.

    I love discounts on fabric and notions. Although it seems like discounts on fabric are much easier to come by!

    I love thrift stores for really awesome vintage fabric that is super-cheap. You can also get tons of buttons and zippers for almost nothing. I would appreciate a student discount for when I buy new things at joann or other fabric stores. I’m broke but I love to sew!

    My favorite discount is when I have a 40-50% off coupon and purchase something on Senior Citizen Discount day each month. I get an additional 10% off for being old. Sorry to say it does not include sewing machines, irons, etc.

    Ha ha ha – at this point in my life, my most needed discount is on diapers!!! They disappear so quickly and if you try to stretch it out, you end up spending on rash cream (don’t worry, we only tried it once!) Other than that, some fabric discounts would be nice, or discounts for sewing machine tune-ups!

    My favorite MOST needed discount is the 50% off coupons from JoAnn’s Fabrics that I get in the mail. I also really like their 10/20% etc off entire purchase coupons. I couldn’t make the amount of costumes I do for such a deal without those!

    I have yet to experience anything other than the common drugstore iron. Must admit, I’m quite intrigued by the hype…
