Martine - January 29, 2011 - 5:50 am

A nice idea.
I know most of these designers but not all of them. This will give me an opportunity to discover them.
I like surfing on blogs, I often find inspiration and take advantage of the tips and tricks.
Though living in France, I mainly purchase my fabrics, patterns,… from the US.
Thank you Anne.
Have a good day.
Martine – FRANCE

Christine - January 29, 2011 - 3:19 pm

Looking forward to all the blogs being highlighted in this exciting and fun event. Now for the life of me I just can’t figure out what your hint is supposed to be… you got me good! Can’t wait to find out.

Celeste - February 4, 2011 - 5:15 am

I was just thinking last night about how I needed a new iron. That brand rocks! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

Grandma Rita - February 4, 2011 - 5:39 am

I’ve never seen this iron. My iron is getting old and tired and this would be a great time to try something new.

Debbie Fielding - February 4, 2011 - 8:30 am

I just love the Oliso iron…it looks amazing……the bunny pillow and lavender sachets are so wonderful….would love to win..

Janie Jones - February 4, 2011 - 9:31 am

I love Moda fabric. I’ve made a few pillows for family and friends and they are quick, easy, and fun. All of the pillows are great and I like seeing what each designer comes up with.

Jane Reid - February 4, 2011 - 5:50 pm

I love this iron! If I should be lucky enough to win it I could give my Sunbeam to my daughter Katie (who has taken possession anyway) and finally get something done! It is like you believe that if you only had an Oliso everything would magically finish itself! I would love to win – and beyond that, all of my ufo’s would love me to win!

Martha - February 4, 2011 - 7:49 pm

Very neat bunny pillow! I love your lavender sachets/pillows. So pretty and dainty.

Sue - February 4, 2011 - 8:28 pm

I love the lavender sachets! So pretty and simple! Why didn’t I think of that? lol

Sandy Humphreys - February 4, 2011 - 10:33 pm

That Iron is awesome. a good iron is tough to find in our small town but so important to quilting. Great blog. Thank you

Heather - February 5, 2011 - 6:05 am

Why do I need that awesome iron? Once a month (sometimes for two days) 11 of us rent the old train station for a day of sewing, companionship and laughter. The tables and chairs are there but we bring everything else. The cutting boards, ironing boards and irons. Currently we have two irons that are our ‘station’ irons. One overheats and smells atrocious and the other doesn’t seem to get hot enough. No one wants to hurt the owners feelings so we make do. The Oliso iron looks amazing and winning it would be a great way to introduce a new iron to our group. Thank you so much.

Mary - February 5, 2011 - 6:43 am

What an incredible iron! I have NEVER seen anything like this, kudos to Oliso! I would love to replace my current iron that fell off my ironing board, and sent parts flying all over the place… namely the dial and spring which controls the thermostat. My iron now has a mind of it’s own and decides when my task is finished. Why haven’t I replaced it? Well, it’s a Rowenta and it happened right after I purchased it! Needles to say, I would LOVE to win this iron, and show my current iron exactly who the boss is!

Donna - February 5, 2011 - 7:10 am

Oh love this site!! It always puts a smile on my face!! LOVE to have the iron!! I need one so bad! Mine does everything but get hot and iron. Mine would make a awesome doorstop! LOL
What a generous gift and offer!
Thanks so much for all the ideas and goodies that you share!
Donna ;)

Nancy Biggs - February 5, 2011 - 7:40 am

I would love the new Oliso iron, especially since my Oliso iron just died. So…..I’m ironless right now! Can’t be bpiecing without a new iron!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jackie - February 5, 2011 - 7:57 am

These irons are fabulous…a good friend has had hers a long time and will probably be buried with it….along with her quilting stash! Why should she have all the fun?! I’d love to have one! Love your site and pictures of the critters are wonderful!

allie - February 5, 2011 - 8:16 am

I would love to win this iron because I run a craft group at my church and we have lots of fun making quilts, prayer shawls and rug hooking kneelers. We would really appreciate a fabulous iron to make our creations nearly perfect. We quilters enjoy doing your block of the month and I am sure Henrietta would like to be pressed with an Oliso iron so please please please choose the St Francis Craft Group for this fabulous iron We are a great group of ladies kind of like the Friday night knitting club Thank you very much !! >^..^<

barbara ellis - February 5, 2011 - 8:26 am

I would like to win the Oliso because I have wanted this iron for a very long time. I watch various quilt shows and they often use it. I like the little feet and how Oliso automatically steams and will shut off when you are done using it. Oh, and I forgot to mention, the Oliso does NOT drip water when you use it! I’m a quilter and do a lot of pressing so the Oliso would be just great for my sewing room !

Tamra Hollar - February 5, 2011 - 8:35 am

Would so love to win this iron. With my carpal tunnel and complex regional pain syndrome the ergonomic handle and its ability to do “push ups” would be an awesome relief to my hand. Could get more quilting done. Plus, yellow matches my sewing room. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Anne Koop - February 5, 2011 - 8:40 am

Just LOVE the new Oliso Iron…..I never burnt my material when I had one of these in the past….most wonderful iron developed. I would LOVE a new one!!

Dee - February 5, 2011 - 8:53 am

I loved using the Oliso Iron at The Road to CA, and it would be so great to have one of my very own! Thanks give us all a chance to win! Dee

martha - February 5, 2011 - 9:22 am

I saw this Oliso iron at the sewing expo last year and was totally blown away with it’s performance. Of course at that time my iron was working just fine. I am now looking to replace said iron and this Oliso would be just perfect!

Glenda - February 5, 2011 - 10:00 am

I didn’t see my comment.So will try again. Love this site.Have this iron.Whoever wins it will be delighted with it. Thank you for Snowbound and Henrietta downloads.

Marilyn Seals - February 5, 2011 - 10:57 am

I would love to win the new Oliso “dream” iron for my “dream” daughter-in-law, Jan, because for Jan, unbelieveably, ironing is her therapy, and she needs a lot of therapy these days. Jan works full time, has three teenagers, and her husband lost his job about a year ago. Jan is such a blessing in my life, as well as a blessing to everyone who knows her. Nothing would please me more than to give her a new Oliso to “up her therapy a notch”.

Elaine - February 5, 2011 - 11:11 am

Oh how I love Bunny Hill Designs! I can hardly wait for your monthly newsletter. It is so fun receiving packages from Bunny Hill.. everything tied with pink ribbons! If you love the Oliso iron, I know I will too. My iron is as important as my wonderful sewing machine. I iron everything, including the sheets.

Linda - February 5, 2011 - 11:19 am

The Oliso smart iron pro
makes me feel like I’m ready to go
stitch and iron all day
in the easiest way,
feeling happy and smiling, ho, ho!

Carol Howard - February 5, 2011 - 11:25 am

Finally I have seen an iron with all the “bells and whistles” that I require as a quilter. It would be the “icing on the cake” to compliment the large ironing board surface my loving husband made for me, and also a lovely Valentine’s Day gift. I won’t be sewing or ironing in bed, only dreaming of owning the best, an Oliso. Make my dreams come true!!! Luv ya, Bunny Hill.

elliesewsweet - February 5, 2011 - 11:57 am

Just about to start a new round of aprons. This iron would make my job soooo much easier!

Lorna Kramer - February 5, 2011 - 12:06 pm

Anne, I have always been intrigued by your website. Your color choices brighten my dark days in Alaska. The iron would be a touch of “sun” in my sewing room to enjoy every day!!! Pillow talk is such a good idea, what a way for all of us to meet the designers. We do have bunnies here, even in the worst of winter we see them scamper about. All of the neighbors feed them so they are nice and “fluffy”.

Elizabeth - February 5, 2011 - 12:36 pm

My mom works as an elementary guidance counselor and manages a dance supply store and works about 60-70 hrs a week. She does crafts with her students and helps with costumes too. I see her sewing Bunny Hill quilts. She works so hard to help pay for my tuition in medical school. I would love to be able to win this iron for her. Her iron now does not work very well and I have seen this iron bookmarked on her computer so I would so LOVE to be able to make her feel so special when she helps so many kids with their quilts and projects. xoxo Elizabeth

Jeanette - February 5, 2011 - 1:22 pm

I have heard so many positive things about this iron. I sure would like the opportunity to own one.

Lisa Green - February 5, 2011 - 1:23 pm

Wow…love your blog and love all your stuff…I’d love to win that iron.
Thanks

Sheriann D. - February 5, 2011 - 3:23 pm

I would love a chance to win won of these incredible irons! My current iron drips rusty water all over my projects. Thank you for the chance.

Laura Hamilton - February 5, 2011 - 3:50 pm

I think I could speed through my quilting and ironing with the Oliso Iron. Even the yellow color makes me smile. It has to be as fun to look at as it is to use.

Peggy - February 5, 2011 - 4:36 pm

I could do with a decent iron. They are so hard to come by. I love to lavender sachets. What a great idea.

Linda - February 5, 2011 - 4:44 pm

I have seen this iron in action and it is awesome. I would love to win it to go along with my new sewing machine, it would make it nicer to press as I am piecing my quilts.

Beverly - February 5, 2011 - 5:19 pm

What a wonderful give away! I would appreciate a new iron as mine is needing to be replaced. I enjoy your website and all your inspiration. Thank you,
Beverly in WA state

Peg - February 5, 2011 - 7:48 pm

I would love this iron, i am a ironing girl. I love to iron it really is like therapy, i was recently introduced to bunny hill designs. Love love love it.

Vicky Glover - February 5, 2011 - 9:06 pm

Would love to win this iron, it sounds fantastic. My iron leaks water when you push the steam button. My goal this year is to make my kids each a quilt and my mom , which means I need a good iron to press those seams, I have 8 quilts to get done. Love the Bunny hill designs, plan to incorporate into the girls’ quilts. Thanks for your creations. Vicky

Beth Allen - February 5, 2011 - 11:13 pm

It is the most amazing, most colourful and from outer space looking iron that I have ever seen!! Looks as though it is straight from the planet Gallifrey, the home of Dr. Who. As our property is called Gallifrey, I thought that it may like to live here with us and make ironing lots of fun. Thanks

Penny - February 6, 2011 - 4:42 am

I just think the idea of this iron is terrific – and would definitely extend my ironing and sewing time by eliminating the lifting (poor arm strength due to a chronic condition)! Thanks very much for the pillow talk hop!

Ofie Keller - February 6, 2011 - 11:24 am

Hi Anne! I can´t believe this, I have been dreaming on this iron for a while now and I feel lucky today! I just like all fabrics and garmets ironed so I spend long hours ironing and I just would love to have this baby in my quilting room, it is just the perfect iron, it sure sounds and looks like it!! Thank you Oliso and thank you Anne for sharing so much with us. Congratulations.

Rene' Allison - February 6, 2011 - 2:03 pm

I so love your designs and have just finished embroidering Snowbound in black thread the last two weeks. I can’t wait to get the piece work done. I have started to print out Henrietta Wiskers patterns and can’t wait to get started with that project. I would so love to win the Oliso iron because it sounds unbelievable. My last three irons have leaked and I just bought another one and within three months I had to send it back to the company for repair. The tank reservoir leaked! Thank you Anne for your inspirations and thank you Oliso for your generosity.

JoAnn Williams - February 6, 2011 - 4:56 pm

Have seen this iron on Fons and Porter TV show and am wishing I had one of my own. I do a lot of quilting small items and it gets tiresome lifting that iron to change positions. I love Bunny Hill fabrics and designs.

marcie - February 7, 2011 - 11:13 am

Thanks Oliso for the oportunity to win the iron and thanks Bunny Hil;, love your designs, have made many of your quilts, have done blocks of the month at my quilt store, just love ya, thanks!! I would love a chance to use this iron, mine is on the fritze, the automatic shut off keeps shuting off while im working on my quilts for the store, go to use it and its not hot, turn it back on, sew, go to use it and its off again, or not hot, driving me crazy, need a new one, then saw your email, thought id take a shot at winning one!!…..thanks again.

Janet Houge - February 7, 2011 - 3:29 pm

What a nice and exciting way to “meet” new designers.
I have never heard of “Oliso” iron. I need a new iron for quilting!!!

Gail Defenbaugh - February 7, 2011 - 4:19 pm

I’m so glad that I stumbled upon your website & blog a couple of months ago. So many wonderful quilt-ish and display ideas! My cherished friend from forever, Ann & her husband Ron were alone on Christmas this year, so, of course they were invited to join us. Ron walked into the kitchen carrying a well worn round tin. I thought they were Christmas cookies, so imagine my surprise & delight when I opened the lid to find it filled with vintage buttons that belonged to Ron’s grandmother! When I saw the lavender sachets, I knew some of those vintage buttons had found a purpose and two of the sachets will find their way to Ann & Ron’s! It would be wonderful to win the Olisio iron to press the seams of those sachets!

Nichole W./The Happy Wren - February 7, 2011 - 5:17 pm

Oh I would love that iron! I am getting ready to finally tackle a quilt for my hubby and I! I’ve made some for everyone else, but this one is for us. I’ve stockpiled my fabric, selected my pattern, and now all I need is this nifty iron to help make my pieces just perfectly pressed and even. Thanks for the chance! Nichole

Christina - February 7, 2011 - 7:49 pm

Oh pleaseeeeeeee!!!! My iron has blown a fuse and leaks on my fabric everytime I use it! It is so hard to make a great quilting seam when the water puffs up my perfectly pressed seam. Over and over I try for that great pressed seam, and everytime, the iron monster wets the seam. Please pick me, and put my iron monster to rest!!!!
Wet quilter

Judy S - February 18, 2011 - 9:05 pm

Did you know that Feb. 17 is not on the list?
