It's Notion of the Month time! This month we have selected Aurifil Thread as our Notion of the Month.
As much as we love fabric, the other essential in quilting is thread. It’s (literally) what holds everything together! That’s why we’ve chosen Aurifil as our Notion of the Month for January.
Aurifil has a wonderful rainbow assortment of basic and fashion-forward hues, which is great if you want your thread to be invisible or if you would like to add some color to your sewing projects! Most importantly, it is of the highest quality. We’ve noticed that the smooth, fine thread leaves less lint than other threads.
Alex Veronelli, product manager of Aurifil Threads, is our guest today to talk more about Aurifil!
Everybody knows the quality of Aurifil threads for piecing and quilting, but not everyone knows that our threads are made following environmentally-friendly production and parameters. Considering that quilts, draperies, table linens, and many other fabric products we use to decorate our homes have a significant impact on a room's atmosphere you must be assured that home textiles do not give off any harmful substances, and the Aurifil threads do not.
Fashionable colors, easy-care properties, a long life span and many other functional properties are now demanded of textiles, so we strive to meet those needs as well as care for our environment. This is the reason that led us to undertake the Certification of our Quality Systems first and then the one for the Environment. All of our dyeing and production procedures are in accordance to strict regulations. After the ecological quality, the other important aspect is the reduction of emissions, especially pollutants in waste. Through a strict process control, and the assessment and implementation of new technology we are able to actively benefit the environment.
Our end result is a product you can love for its quality and uses in your sewing and quilting projects, as well as for its reduced environmental impact.
