Right There With You

New products, promotions & reflections on a family business surviving and thriving.



About seven or eight years ago a sewing dealer acquaintance of mine told me we shouldn’t bother introducing our own line of steam presses. “A passing fad” I think was the way he described it. Boy, am I glad I didn’t listen to him. Our Empressa steam press sales have been a bright spot in a challenging economy and they continue to increase every year.

The basic idea behind steam presses is very simple… iron, without using an iron. As time has progressed, the pressing area has increased in size, and the temperature control has become much more consistent as they’ve incorporated new technologies.

We are very pleased to present the latest, and most advanced Empressa ever, the S550.
