Paducah, KY (April 24, 2013) – Panasonic, a leader in consumer technologies for the home, will be an official sponsor of the American Quilters Society (AQS) Quiltweek™ 2013 taking place in Paducah, Kentucky (also known as Quilt City USA®) from April 24 through April 27 at the Paducah McCracken County Expo & Convention Center. Panasonic currently offers a variety of irons in its product lineup which offer unique features and functions that resonate with consumers interested in quilting, sewing and crafting. A number of these irons will be exhibited in booth #1929.
“The Panasonic cordless irons have long been a favorite among quilters and we are excited to see growth in their popularity within the quilting and crafting world,” said Nicholas Monaco, Product Manager, Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America. “AQS Quiltweek gives us a great opportunity to showcase the benefits of Panasonic Irons for everyday use in both ironing and steaming clothes and utilizing in quilting, crafting and sewing.”
Being featured at the show in the Panasonic booth is the Panasonic NI-L70SR Cordless Steam/Dry Iron, available in Walmart stores this June, which provides users with more freedom while ironing due to the cordless design. Additional unique features include vertical steam which allows for a direct burst of steam for hanging garments, adjustable steam settings, an anti-calcium system to prevent clogged vents by reducing sediment build-up in the vaporizing chamber of the iron. The Panasonic NI-LS70SR Iron also features a heat-resistant carrying case for easy storage or transport. An automatic cord reel on the charging base helps to eliminate tangles and messy cord storage with the press of a button and a detachable water tank makes it easy to refill water before, during or after ironing.
