Velocity 200IR – Pre Order Today

I love my new Velocity 200IR Iron.

The best iron ever!  The iron has truly been worth the wait, even if it was 2 years.

Best Hand Held IronTHE MAGIC
With a patented two heating elements design, the Velocity 200IR pre-heats the water before it reaches the heated soleplate. This guarantees continuous steam even at low temperatures which means delicate fabric like wool can be ironed safely.

Our advanced auto shut off bypass feature allows the user to bypass the built-in 8 minute auto shut off and use the iron continuously. This is a great feature for our sewing & quilting project friends.


Steeam... magic Velocity 200IRHOW EASY IS THIS?
By simply placing your hand on the handle (and having the steam button in the on position) the Velocity 200IR springs to life with the most wonderful, voluminous steam you have ever seen in a steam iron.


Tempted to cook with itYOU WILL BE TEMPTED TO COOK WITH IT
Like the finest cookware, the Velocity 200IR features a next generation anodized aluminum soleplate which enhances gliding on all types of fabric.



The all new Velocity 200IR compact vapor generator iron is the ultimate expression of our iron know how. The Velocity 200IR thinks (and more importantly acts) like a pro iron. Water is heated internally so it turns into steam before it even reaches the sole plate (like our pro models). The end result is a steam iron that doesn’t leak and doesn’t spit water and delivers continuous steam that will astonish you.

The goal of all irons is to get out of the way and let you get your ironing done. No other iron allows you do this better than the Velocity 200IR. From its easy to use sensor touch handle to its super glide and scratch resistant anodized aluminum soleplate, the Velocity 200IR is the finest home iron you can invest in.

The Styrofoam Cornice kit is available in 3 heights and 2 styles.  The Avalon in the most popular style, perfect for all rooms in your home.  The exciting part about the cornice kits is that is very easy to change the fabric and create a seasonal look to your decorating style.  The Cosmo is a flat contemporary style of cornice and is only available in a 15″ height.  The cornice kits also have corner and bay window extensions available to match the Avalon Style.

We decorating or covering the cornice it is best to look for patterns that are railroaded so you can cut one long piece of fabric for each section.  If you are using 54″ wide fabric you can just fold under the fabric and match the pattern.Railroaded Fabric

Railroading refers to the way a fabric , usually a pattern, is milled.  Normally a bolt of fabric features the top of a pattern going up the roll.  However, a railroaded fabric will have the top of the pattern going across the roll.  This provides a continuous roll of the pattern, making it possible to upholster a large sofa, cushion or draperies without creating seams or a break in the pattern.
