Aurifil Thread Giveaway - Black and White

Let's talk thread!

As Quilters and Sewers - thread binds everything we create together.

Some will say the most important item is fabric,
spend the extra on fabric,
I say buy the best thread!

Cheap cotton threads breaks and rots after a few years.
Have a problem with your thread breaking
try a spool of Aurifil 50 wt. thread!
It may just cure it!

Just a side note - if you have old thread that was given to you,
use it as a decoration don't use it in your machine.
Never buy old thread for sewing,
it will just cause you a lot of frustration.


When I needed a bag to hold my smaller rulers,
I chose Aurifil 50 wt thread to zig zag the bag
because it is strong and durable!


I use white to sew almost everything light colored and that includes topstitching. I went back months searching my most used color and go figure it is Aurifil 50 wt. thread #2021, Natural White!

It only goes to say that my other most used color
of Aurifil 50 wt. thread is #2692, Black!

Sometimes topstitching has to match the fabric!
I find at those times I love,
Aurifil 50 wt thread
even more, with 270 different colors it
is easy to find the color I need!



This giveaway is Sponsored by Aurifil

Follow the instructions below to be entered
to win (2) large spools (1422 yards on each spool)
One of #2021 - Natural White and one of #2692 - Black
