Recognize this image? This is what your iron can do for you. If you want a hole in the table, just apply a hot iron and walk away.
People often ask me what kind of iron I use to burn holes in a table. And here is my recommendation. For everyday hole burning or fusing buy an inexpensive iron. It doesn't seem to matter what brand I use, they either last forever or expire within a year. But for steam setting your fused quilts or ironing fabric, I recommend a Rowenta tank iron. It is a glorious steamer!
