Todd will demo our new Laurastar Ironing System.

What is Laurastar?
Laurastar is a unique, commercial grade ironing system that irons, steams, and sanitizes. It has been certified to kill 99.9% of all bacteria, mites, fungi, and viruses, yes, even coronavirus! You can use this system to sanitize your clothes, antique quilts, or even your masks in a matter of seconds without getting them wet!

Laurastar is a quilter's/sewist's dream! With an always on feature, you never have to worry about a cool iron again, and you never have to worry about a dripping iron, either. Create perfect flat seams while piecing!
