Bitter Betty Sells Out, Just For You!! Rowenta Iron Give Away!!!



So I did it!!
I made a deal with an Honest to Goodness sponsor, the super deluxe online retailer CSN
CSN has over 200 online stores that carry everything from martini shakers to tv stands and even, drum roll please, Sewing Stuff!  And they let Me pick out something to give away to you, my wonderful readers!

After a long and thoughtful perusal, I settled on something that every seamstress wants, but only a few will allow themselves to purchase. The Hundred Dollar Iron! 
"What?" You may ask yourself, "Why in the world would one want a Hundred Dollar Iron??"
Well, because next to your Sewing Machine, your iron is the most important garment construction tool Ever! and let me tell you, from my retail merchandising days, the better irons really work BETTER. 
But you don't have to take it from me. I have included from White's Sewing Manual circa 1947 a step by step pressing guide/ tutorial, so now, with this valuable info, everyone is already a winner:

(Click to enlarge and print sweeties. You Know The Drill.)






 I know you are now convinced that there IS room for improvement in your pressing life. You need more details on that fancy iron, doncha?

Well, here's the specs:

The improved steam glide and comfort of the DX-8860 provides a new level in professional ironing. With a new better design and higher quality, the DX-8860 delivers higher performance. Its polished stainless Steel Soleplate with advanced heatshield with extra large area and specially designed dimples and channels, provides better glide and easier ironing with less effort. Get the same amount of work done in less time and greater comfort with the extra long steam burst, and full comfort handle with ergonomic controls. The 100 percent covered soft touch handle provides comfort and a non-slip grip for precision ironing, while soft touch ergonomic controls buttons provide superior control. Features:
  • Polished Stainless Steel Soleplate with Advanced Heatshield
  • Extra Long Burst of Steam
  • Anti-Drip System
  • 3-Way Auto Shut-Off
  • Self Clean System
  • Variable Steam Adjusts for Right Amount of Steam for Every Fabric Type
  • 1750 Watts
Okay, to enter leave a comment on this post. If you link back to this post in the next week  you will be entered a second time. Let me know in your comment that you will be doing that, so I can find you easily. (Lazy, Sell-Out Betty...) 
I will combine the two lists and use the Random Number generator to pick the winner on June 1st at 9:00 am PST.

Tell your friends, especially the ones with those tatty old thrift store irons.

How do you know I have a tatty old thrift store iron? Well, I do. I'd love a beautiful new one!

Christi said...

Wow, I've been drooling over a Rowenta iron ever since my old black-and-decker started spitting on my clothes rather than ironing them. I'll now dream of the awesome things I could sew and how great I would look in ironed clothing!

craftevangelist said...

Ooooh... I have a free-cycled iron, which is sadly better than the one I had before. But I really need a hundred dollar iron.

two hippos said...

Oooh! My iron is on the fritz (sometimes it heats up and sometimes not) but I need to save up for a new one. This could be just the solution :)

JJ Sobey said...

Oh my - I would SO LOVE ONE OF THESE!!!

Fulvia said...

I love to press every seam I sew .. and that's it for me! Thanks for the old ads too. Congratulations on your foray into sponsorship.

I'm the Laundry Queen around here, as well as a closet quilter. I could use a new iron!! Thanks!

Susan said...

Anew iron, Yes I ned it. DH got me the wonderful Maytag one couple years back but I let someone else use it and they sure didn't know how to take it off the heater part and now the connectors won't connect to heat it up. I did get to use for a couple months tho. So now the one I use was left in our apartment. 1 setting only but will have to do till I win this one. Yes I will link this contest to my blog. Thanks for the chance!

suzof7 said...

Oh, what a dream, lol! You are certainly right about the hesitance to buy the Hundred Dollar Iron.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Boot ~C said...

You're so right, it is a totally different experience using a really good iron. When I don't HAVE to do it(ie wear aomething right that minute) I kind of like to iron, something about the smell of hot cotton & starch I guess

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

A friend got upset because I was late and we wouldn't have time for a drink before the movies. I said sorry, but I'd had to iron my shirt and pants. She responded that should have taken about a minute. She always looked like it took her about 15 seconds. She could have used this article, and this iron. If I win, I'll name it after her.

Who wouldn't want to win a Rowenta iron. My husband would love it. He can iron much better than me.

Maybe I can finally join an extreme sewing team with this beauty!
http://www.extremeironing.com/
...or maybe I can just happily press scads of fabric waiting in a pile. I'm so embarrassed to be one of those with a thrift shop iron after my not-quite-$100-but-close iron went to the great big ironing board in the sky. Fingers crossed!

I could so use a new iron. Mine has been dropped so many times the point is dented in and leaved a crease. I have a newer one but the other doesn't seem to get as hot. I'm a new reader. Enjoy you blog.

mail.suboo@gmail.com said...

Would love to replace the shoddy one I'm currently struggling with!

SteffiD said...

OH you rock for this awesome giveaway!

I could definitely use this in a major way! Not only am I using a borrowed iron, but I'm using a borrowed ironing board as well. HELP! haha.

I would love an iron that actually works! Mine is some serious weak sauce.

Shiny Green Penny said...

My current iron is held together with hockey tape due to the fact that it has fallen off the ironing board far too many times to remember! ( I know, how sad is that?!) But hey, it's CLEAR hockey tape so you can only notice it when you are....well, in the same room.....

BunnyKnut said...

My iron has a life of it's own...and it's not a productive one! I would LOVE to have an iron list this one. It sounds dreamy....if one can say iron + dreamy in the same sentence...

Jamie said...

I have lusted after this iron for SO long that I've refused to part with the money for a cheaper iron because I knew that it wouldn't measure up. Which means that I have consistently wrinkly pants (shame face).

Anonymous said...

I am not a seamstress, but my mother is. She taught me to iron when I was young so that I would always look polished when I left the house. I'm now married to a police officer - Detective actually - so he always needs to look professional when going to work. I even iron my little boys clothes and they are only 20 months and 3. I use a Rowenta iron because they do work better. My email address is techspoon@comcast.net should my number be drawn.

Thank you,

Birdie said...

Oh! I would love to win that nice iron. I'm such a [cheap bastard] that I just buy whatever iron's cheapest, usually ending up with the $7.99 ones that I have to replace every six months or so. :O
Thank you so much for having this giveaway.

Pamela said...

Betty, I've been convinced of the value of good ironing since my Home Ec days (guess the the reference to Home Ec gives you an idea of my age).

I been convinced almost that long that I need a better iron but there have always been other things that seemed more important.

Thank you for encouraging CNN to let you give an iron away. I'm hoping I'll be the lucky person that gets it.

I'll be leaving a comment on my blog about the give -away as well.

Oooooo... A new iron! That would be awesome! Thanks for the chance to win.

PumpkinFreckles said...

um, I love to iron. the steam and i make my own lavender ironing water so it's more like a ritual. plus i love to watch fabric go from being wrinkly to beautifully smooth. i totally agree that it's an important part of sewing, pressing, but not ironing. it took me a while to learn that especially in quilting. thanks for the give-away.

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Susan said...

I'll try, my iron is a throwback to the 70s. CSN contacted me, but they would NOT give me anything for free to review or to giveaway, they only offered me $50 towards the purchase of something to review and then would give a $50 GC to one lucky commentor, I passed. I must know at least 8 bloggers that get stuff sent to them all the time for free. and Now you get a $100 iron to giveaway. I do not understand, how the same company can make such a different offer to some people then to others.

GOOD LUCK to everyone!

thanks for this opportunity.
Susan

Rose said...

I would appreciate a new iron. I seem to go through them quickly---they last about 1 year. When I replaced my last iron (2 weeks ago!) I decided to buy a cheap, because I determined that it's just not worth the investment. But to WIN an iron would be wonderful, to WIN a high quality iron would be abolutely a luxury. thank you for the opportunity!

Chantal said...

Before I started sewing, I could not care less about irons, cause I was allergic to ironing, and always bought clothes that needed no ironing...(I make a test in the store, I scrunch the piece of clothing I'm thinking of buying in my hand and if it stays wrinkled when I release it, then I usually don't buy it!). BUT since I started sewing, I realized that ironint is an important part of the process, and that I need a good iron. I still hate ironing clothes, but while I'm sewing, I actually like ironing seams! The iron I have is old, all rusty, but I'm not willing to spend money on a better one, so I must win this one!

Jennifer said...

I would love to have this iron!! Thanks for this give away! I love the vintage stuff!!

What a terrific giveaway idea! This is defintely an item I've always coveted but, quite predictably, have never allowed myself to purchase.

Robin said...

YES! A new iron would so rock! Mine do last longer now that I'm an empty nester. My iron seemed to just jump off the ironing board all on it's ownback in the days. ~Robin~

Teresa said...

I have never not had an iron but the one I have doesn't steam well anymore and the spray thing quit working a long time ago.
An iron this nice would be wonderful. Thank you to your wonderful sponsor.

Just found your blog and wonderful give-away while reading Julie's blog "Jane's Apron." I have been a believer in a good iron for years. It's an absolute necessity. Unfortunately even a good iron does not last forever. Please count me in.
