In my many, many years of sewing, Aurifil is truly the highest quality cotton thread I've used. It is the most popular cotton thread on the market, and I use it for just about everything. Machine applique, machine embroidery, piecing, top stitching, quilting... you name it, and I probably turn to Aurifil for it. It is a strong thread, but really thin, making for really flat crisp seams. Plus, it produces practically no lint, so I don't have to clean my bobbin nearly as often. It makes the job of our machine service technicians that much easier when I bring my machine in for its yearly cleaning.
In case you haven't heard, I have recently purchased the building north of Prairie Quilt. The Grand Opening for our new Prairie Quilt Showroom is scheduled for Friday, January 3 and Saturday, January 4. Aurifil is always so generous with their donations for our events, and I can not wait to see what they send us for an extra special giveaway during the Grand Opening. More details coming soon!
