Aurifil Threads Giveaway!

This sew full of thanks giveaway is sponsored by the fabulous people at Aurifil Threads!



One set of 12 spools will be coming home to a lucky winner!  Aren't the colors gorgeous?!


Have you ever sewed with Aurifil thread?  It comes highly recommended across the blogosphere.  I won a set of four spools of neutral thread in the Beginner's Quilt Along at the Quilting gallery - thanks for your votes, by the way!  I haven't been able to test them out yet, but don't worry!  I'll be back with a review for you soon!

What seems to be unanimous from other blogger's reviews and discussion with fellow guild members are these points:
excellent for piecing and quilting
less lint in your machine
more thread on your bobbins!  always a plus!
price is comparable to other brands

If you'd like to read more, amy at badskirt has a good review, and there's a cost breakdown at live. love. create. I did a little looking online, and Red Rock Threads has some pretty good deals on sets.  I generally use white, tan, or gray thread, so it just makes sense to buy large spools of those colors, and not have to rethread my machine as often while working on a project!

Giveaway will close 11/19/2012 at noon CST.  Winner will be notified by email, and has one week to claim their prize. 

More giveaways still to come!  check back soon!

I have just gotten some Aurifil thread and have used it for EPP (amazing!!! no tangles!), but I am in the middle of machine-piecing a quilt and didn't want to switch thread halfway through. I cannot wait to use it on my machine!

Kelsey said...

Not yet! I do have a few mini spools that I won but they're bright colors so I'm waiting for the perfect project!

Mama Pea said...

Aurifil is my FAVORITE THREAD! It is all I ever use for piecing and use it a lot for quilting, too. It is just THE BEST! It runs through the machine nice, and it lasts a long time! I also buy it from Red Rock Threads all the time. Those guys are the best. They ship so fast, and their prices are good! Nice to visit, Tammie! Hope all's well!

I have only one spool of Aurifil thread, a varigated yellow I'm using to machine quilt a bed runner. You can see the difference it makes using quality thread!

Kate said...

I have used it a couple of times to quilt. Really great thread! I need more colors!

Passion4Quilting said...

I have Aurifil thread and just love it! I have used it for machine quilting, piecing, and completely fell in love with it for hand sewing the binding on! I've used the wool thread too--and it sews just wonderfully!! I have a few more spools of another brand--and once they are gone--I'll use Aurifil 100% for everything!! And another bonus.....no lint!!

Elizabeth said...

My local quilt shop carries this thread and I absolutely love it. So many color choices and the quality can't be beat.

Yes, I have tried Aurifil thread but I don't have any of those really exciting colours. Like you mine are the dull everyday usuable kind. The thread sews like a dream.
