Scrap Quilt Challenge-Sponsor Spotlight-Aurifil Thread

Fabrics N Quilts Scrap Quilt Challenge

Fabrics N Quilts is again honored to partner with Aurifil thread and welcome them back as a sponsor of the Scrap Quilt Challenge for year 5!

What I love most about this multi-national company is that they take interest in individuals and run their company like no one is a stranger.  They are very social media active (all the links on their home page) & fast to share the beautiful projects made by hobby quilters and professionals alike.  It's so refreshing to see this attention paid to "the everyday Josephine".  A little bio on Aurifil can be found on their About page.  I think that they never lost their roots of what it is to run a family business.  So many corporations do, so let's all applaud Aurifil on that one!

Aurifil makes its cotton thread in 12, 28, 40 and 50 weight thread-all suitable for machine use -using the correct machine settings.  They also offer large cones of polyester thread, intended for long arm use, monofilament, wool, and newly introduced cotton floss.  The six strand floss is wound on wood spools {swoon}.

If you will be attending the AQS Show in Chattanooga, September 16-19, stop by & check out the threads, the different weights & stock up!  We'll have a great special and good info too!  You can find us in Booth #932.  We're on the end of an aisle, so we should be easy to find-just a couple rows back from the quilt display.

Aurifil has generously donated 4 curated thread collections by Caroline Hulse for the Scrap Quilt Challenge.  3 lucky winners will win 50 wt cotton thread on 220 yard spools and 1 lucky duck will receive the large spool collection of 12 in 40wt!

Remember to tag the Aurifil creations you post online with the hashtag, #aurifil.  You may just pick up some online love!
Thank you Elly & Alex for being such great partners to all the quilters and shops, big names or small.  We appreciate you right back!
