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!

'Tis The Season Table Top Display
‘Tis the season to stitch up a smiling gingerbread man, a jolly Santa and a tasty candy cane, all machine appliquéd upon a twinkling background of swirling stars in this ‘Made in the Hoop’ machine embroidered celebration of Christmas



“Moonshine” was inspired by a walk on a crisp fall evening with the harvest moon casting a glow over the mountain tops. The silhouette of the old oak tree branches with the moon in the background was awe-inspiring. Scattered leaves adorned a tree branch while the glow of the moon enriched the color in the leaves. We partnered the glowing moon with regal crows gathering together to welcome in fall. The collection has a compliment of stunning coordinates. Coordinates include acorns, leaves and wildflowers.


It is currently hard to imagine that cooler weather is on the way. Eventually it will arrive, and you will welcome warmer fabrics. We are very please to offer you this high quality fleece, and are very anxious to see the projects you create with it.
