I thought I might share my latest discovery with you.... I received some Aurifil thread to try out and I am in love! I appliqued and played with some hexagons last night and this thread glides through the fabric and no fraying! I have been complaining about knots in my applique thread a few posts back, but no knots here! Aurifil's Mako 50 feels like silk! It has a beautiful shine and a smoother feel.
I can't wait to try the thread this weekend to finish one of my Dresden plates and I have a cute composition cover that I will share soon!
I tried out one of my sampler packs, but I can't keep them to myself.
I want to share the rest with you. You will receive all the types of thread available. There is a wool for for wool embroidery projects, a Mako 12 for Sashiko and Red Work, a Mako 28 for hand quilting, and a Mako 40 for your machine work. I know I am going to personally enjoy the Mako 50 for my piecing, quilting and applique! The four pack, on the left, is an Aurifil Collections Mark Lipinski's Appetizer kit.
You will receive these 9 spools of Aurifil thread pictured above. Yummy thirties fabric waiting to be sewn are not included. I am so excited to go shopping. Look at these beautiful colors... I almost want to change my header!
So... how do you win some of this thread candy?
