Happy November! We loved seeing all of your #FQSPets posts for our October social media photo contest! In fact - we loved it so much that we decided to do another contest this month!

With the exciting buzz generated from the release of the Aurifil 80 wt, we can't get our minds off of thread.  From now until Tuesday, November 22, post your latest project featuring the thread that you used with the hashtag #Thankfulforthread on Facebook and Instagram.

One lucky winner will recieve a Large Aurifil Thread Box of their choice! What is your current go-to thread? We can't wait to see what you're using and the beautiful projects that you've got under construction!

Fun, fun, fun. I have fallen in love with Aurifil and it is my favorite choice. I'm very excited about their new 80wt thread and wanting to try it for piecing, free-motion quilting, as well as machine embroidery.

I love Aurifil, I only have the basics box but, it's great virtually no lint. Fantastic! ;-> Toni Anne

I use my happy colors of my Lori Holt Aurifil Thread box for appliqueing. Otherwise I use Gutermann thread in white or cream for all other sewing.

Aurifil is my top choice for all piecing and sewing. I'd love to have a chance at the box. but I don't do Facebook, and I don't have a smartphone. I do well to get Flickr and my blog done, LOL!!

Aurifil is my choice of thread. I love how they put together sets of threads to match fabric colletions. Fantastic!

I too like Lori Holt's collection. I hadn't heard of the 80 wt thread.

Pat Sloan's collection. Aurifil. Just suits the color fabrics I am using in the Splendid Sampler. Good morning.

I used Aurifil floss on the wooden spools.

I use Aurifil thread for all of my quilting projects. I usually can sew with off white/cream or gray for most projects.

Auroral white is my go to for quilting

Aurifil is my favourite thread!!! I prefer the neutrals but have a beautiful collection of other colours too!!! With that said, one never seems to have enough!!!

MaryBeth said...

I used to use Gutterman. Then I discovered Aurifil. WOW!! Not that I don't still use Gutterman ever, but there is a huge difference using the Aurifil. So beige and grey are my most common for piecing.

I love Aurifil but sometimes have to settle for Guttermann at the big box store.

I recently received a couple spools of Alex Anderson's Thread Master Piece by Superior. It's a low lint producer and tolerates heat very well. LOVE IT!

I really like using the Aurifil thread in gray or cream for all my piecing projects. I do no quilting so have no opinion there. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful thread! Helen hrglover(at)hotmail(dot)com

I absolutely love using Aurifil Thread for my all my projects, it makes everything sew much easier. With a huge range of colours and weights and with practically no lint all seams disappear but quilting pops just like a dream. Can't wait to start using the new 80wt Aurifil and what I can create up with it ☺️ #Thankfulforthread

My one and only Aurifil verigated brown thread (50 wgt). It goes good with cream, brown n caramel color fabric. I'm new to Aurifil so more colors will get in my thread rack.

I (and my sewing machine) love Aurifil 50 wt. It's great for both machine sewing and hand applique. Thanks for the fun!

Rita said...

Aurifil 50 usually in beige or light gray. Love this for piecing.

Linda said...

Aurifil is wonderful thread. I most often use 40-50 weight and most often white, cream or light grey, but do love the vast color options to pick from. Wonderful giveaway!
