Ti Amo Signor Aurifil

That's "I love you Mr Aurifil" in Italian because Mr Aurifil, aka Alex Veronelli is Italian, as is Aurifil thread.  Why do I love Mr Aurifil?  Because I casually mentioned to him that you all said you wanted lots of giveaway prizes rather than one great big doozy, that you'd asked for a selection of weights and types of thread so you could try out Aurifil for yourselves and that you'd like a colour card thrown in so you could then order the exact colour you wanted and guess what?  Mr Aurifil, he say YEAH!  So we have ten packs to give away.  Each pack will contain five spools of thread; one of each weight in cotton and one wool. 


 And each pack will also contain a colour card.  Hurray!
To win?  Simple, one comment with the word "Aurifil" in.  If you use Aurifil, let me know what you use it for or why you love it or where you buy it or how many thread weights you've tried or some other random Aurifil-related fact I might be interested to know.  If you haven't tried it yet, let me know why you would like to, what you would like to use it for or why you haven't tried it before.  A week from today, Mr Random Number Generator will pick ten, yes ten winners.  Andiamo!

  6. I'd love to win some Aurifil thread! I am a rookie quilter, and I'm just learning about all the wonderful products on the market. Thanks so much for the fabulous giveaway!

  7. I have loved Aurifil for years! It is only available in one shop locally, but it is worth the extra trouble to get it. Very little lint and it is just amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Well, who doesn't like to win thread????

    I have really not used Aurifil enough to get a handle on it. One of these packages would be just the ticket.

    Thx for the chance to win.

  9. I'v read great things about Aurifil. My local shop does not carry it, but they are trying to! It would be wonderful to win the Aurifil and get a head start. Thanks so much for the give-a-way.

  10. I’ve never used Aurifil, but I keep hearing about it. There’s nowhere near me to get it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. I use whatever thread my local wee shop has and I must admit I haven't thought too much about it until you started mentioning Aurifil. I would love to try some out and see what all the fuss is about

    ReplyDelete
  12. Just bought my first Aurifil spool and am looking forward to trying it out. Would love the opportunity to try the different weights.

    ReplyDelete

  17. OK. So let me get this straight. You are in love with Mr Aurifil and you are giving away the resulting spools of love threads away to us, correct?
    So of course I want to give it a go cos I'm having what your having lady...

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't tried Aurifil, but would love to quilt with it. Oh, and I'll give this a try....
    Ti Amo Signor Random Number Generator! (We'll see if that works)

  19. I love Auriful and use the light grey or the cream color for all my piecing. No fuzz left in my machine. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We were talking about thread at my last guild meeting, and Aurifil is definitely the thread of choice. I tried some and it lies soo flat when you iron your seams it is fantastic. I would love to try some of the other weights. Thanks for the chance. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I use Aurifil thread for both piecing and quilting. My machine likes it best (and so do I!). I've only used the 50wt that I get at my LQS.
    I would love to try some other weights/ kinds.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I haven't tried Aurifil, but would love to.
    Thanks

  23. Ok I have been seeing SO much talk about this wondeful Aurifil thread that I really must try some myself. It would be awesome, of course, to win some of this fabulous Aurifil thread. Thank you for the chance to try Aurifil for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I haven't tried aurifil, and I would love to - I have a brand that works well, but haven't really tried very many to see what's different. Thanks for the giveaway! yzobela at hotmail dot com

  25. I'd like to come out of the rock that I've been under and sew with some Aurifil. I have you to thank for shedding the light. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I haven't used Aurifil yet, but I'd like to get a bit more organised about threads.

    I am a pretty new quilter, but have been sewing for decades, mostly clothing. In that department, I generally use what I find in my threads drawer and what matches the fabric at hand. I seem to be well stocked with all kinds of remainders, big and small, "legacy" spools, and some large cones of all purpose thread in kinda all purpose colors.

    But I suspect that there might be just the perfect yarn for quilting, and maybe even for different types of quilting. So I would love to win and try out Aurifil's awesomeness!

  27. I have never tried Aurifil thread, but would sure love to!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I use the 50/2 weight Aurifil for all of my quilt piecing. I love it! For some reason, the bobbin seems to last forever (which is great) and I find my 1/4" seams to be more accurate. I would really like to win one of your variety packages so I can try some of the other weights. Thanks for the chance! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ooh ooh ooh, a thread giveaway - I'm interested. I use the Aurifil 50/2 thread for piecing and sometimes quilting. Less for quilting though because I get it from the Cotton Patch and they only stock 10 colours in the neutral range so it's kind of been a useful piecing thread. If I knew where to get more colours I'd definitely be up for quilting with it as well.
    Ciao ;-)

  30. I’m not surprised you love Aurifil threads! I use them for piecing, quilting, appliqué, hand quilting, well... for about everything (ahum... quilt-related that is!). Great colours, huge collection, Mr Alex Velronelli knows how to make quilters happY!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love Aurifil, and I have several, both 40wt and 50wt. I'd like to try it on my new longarm, wonder how that would work? I'm currently using it for piecing, and it's lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've been wanting to try aurifil threads for a while. A sewing friend gave me one spool of 40wt that I've loved but I'd like to try others too. Grazie, Mr Aurifil.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have never used Aurifil-I've never seen it for sale in my little shopping here in Hawaii!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've been hearing a lot about Aurifil these days and I'd love the chance to try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oooooh Aurifil - that is a great giveaway!
    As I told you in your last post about this - I use 50 wt and 60wt for piecing - which means that I use the 60 wt in the bobbin and it lasts longer because I get more on the bobbin than when I use heavier wt thread and the result is great! I use the 12wt for stitchery and it is soooo great, I used to divide the mouline and use 2 strands making a mess of the thread I didn't need. The 12wt is perfect for my use.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I want in on the freebies! Very clever of you to ask nice Mr Aurifil. I love using it, I have only used 50wt and it is great FMQ. Never tangles or gives me tension problems. Ecru is a great colour for piecing, almost invisible against most colours.

  37. I have never used Aurifil and would love to try!

  38. i have never used Aurifil, but i have heard many good things about it from the janome horizon yahoo group that i belong to. thanks for the giveaway!

  42. Aurfil-me-up!!! I want it because it is free, oh, and it sounds fantastic and looks lovely! Thank you for schmoozing x

    ReplyDelete
  43. I use my Aurifil for piecing and for quilting and so far it hasn't broken or snagged on the back, I am very pleased with it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I bought my first (orange) aurifil recently, and I have fallen in love. It is so smooth and silky - it makes sewing even more fun!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi. I have heard great things about Aurifil thread, but unfortunately I can't seem to find a local stockist over here in the south of the UK - if anyone has any suggestions I would be gald to received them. Thanks for the giveaway.

    *okay, that was a bit of a stretch, but i'm not a native speaker after all :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't use Aurifil and I am not even sure if I could buy it around here - I have not seen it in the fabric stores I have been too. I would love to try it though for quilting, piecing, sewing, generally anything that requires thread.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous thread. I use Auriful 50 wt for piecing and some quilting in my Juki, because it loves the thread and gives me great results when I use it. I have to mail order it, so my color palette is limited. If I won the card, I could choose my colors carefully.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have used the gorgeous variegated Aurifil threads to quilt two of my quilts. They had a really subtle colour change on them and looked lovely when I was done.

    ReplyDelete
  50. A friend of mine brought me 4 spools of Aurifil from her travels as a gift for taking care of her dog. The best gift ever! The thread was wonderful to work with. I swear the bobbins lasted twice as long. Same with the spool. The thread didn't leave a bunch of lint around either, it was strong/no breakage or slubs (unlike the spool I just bought of another brand). Love it... and wish I could dog sit again soon!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh what a lovely giveaway - I would love to win some Aurifil thread as I live abroad and you can`t find anything like that here. If I won some, I would use it for hand-quilting as I love to hand quilt whenever possible. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've been wanting to try this Aurifil thread for some time now, Lynne. It isn't sold anywhere near my home, and I hear that it's kinda pricey, so I guess those two things have been stopping me. But a freebie just might get me hooked :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have not tried Aurifil before but would love to. I have heard only good things about this thread and would love to see how it looks in some of my upcoming quilts. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I've only used Aurifil once, for quilting, it was brilliant, no snapped threads and I hope to use it more often for more general sewing !

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sewing with Aurifil is like the difference between Cava and Champagne ...

    I've just bought some 50 wt and I love it love it love it ... It's so fine I can sew tidy seams ...

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have made exactly 2 whole quilts and one half and so still have no idea what I am doing! I would love to try some Aurifil as the cheap stuff I have been using up has been rubbish!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I've never used Aurifil, in fact I didn't know it existed until you posted the other day. But after reading about how much you love it I feel giddy just thinking about the possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've never tried, or heard of Aurifil before.

    I imagine Mr Aurifil in a white suit like the man from Delmonte now. x

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would like to try Aurifil thread to feel the difference in using it. I have a hexagon quilt top finished just waiting to be quilted.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I don't use Aurifil. I would like to try using Aurifil. And I like Mr Aurifil too - a very generous man indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would love to give Aurifil a try. Thank you for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I really want to try Aurifil threads too.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've got to try Aurifil! I've been seeing so many rave reviews online. The sample pack and color card would be a perfect start.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yay! I am currently shopping around for a new thread to try, Aurifil looks like a good option :-) Thanks, Lynne!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I really, really NEED Aurifil - I'm just learning to do FM quilting and all the thread I try breaks far too often - I've read in so many places that Aurifil can be the answer to a 'maiden's' prayer !
    and I can't find a stockist near me so I can't match colours !

    ReplyDelete
  66. What a great giveaway! Is there a way to find out stockists of Auriful when you're not lucky enough to have an Iphone or Ipad to download the app? (Unless Mr A want top giveawy one of those too?)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I've never heard of Aurifil before, but I'd love to try it out in my quilts. Especially the variegated one. The colors look so lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I absolutely love the verigated Aurifil, look at those colors - how fun would they be to quilt with!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm new to all of this :-) I've spent the last month or so practising my piecing and I've just started work on a small wall panel, which will be my first foray into actual quilting! Wouldn't it be great if I could use some Aurifil thread :-)
    Thanks so much for the chance to win :-)

  70. I have never tried Aurifil, but I would love to try it for piecing and quilting. Thanks for the giveaway!

  71. Would love to try Aurifil. It would help me get my quilts, quilted!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I had never even heard of Aurifil until you posted about it (yes, I live under a rock), but I am intrigued and always looking for something to make my quilting better :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm a new Aurifil user, as in the last few months. I LOVE it. I use 50 wt for piecing and quilting so far and would like to try other weights for quilting. I love that it leaves hardly any lint which is a must for someone who sews as much as I do. I order mine from Discount Embroidery, they have great prices and free shipping on orders over $20. I have only ordered from them once and had a little snafu on the time it took to ship to me (they said part of my order was out of stock but I didn't find that out until after I emailed them to see what the hold up was), but I will give them another try because let's face it, sometimes stuff happens, right?

    Thanks for this giveaway because I really need a color card (so I can stop bugging my friend who does have one, lol) and I would love to try those other weights out. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get picked!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have never sewed with Aurifil before simply because thread is difficult to find where I live...any type of thread! I love that there's a colour card that makes ordering online so much easier. Great give away Lynne! I hope I win :-D

    ReplyDelete
  75. I would love to try Aurifil thread. I have heard a lot of good things about it, but wasn't sure what to try. Awesome giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I haven't sewn with Aurifil because we didn't have a local store that carried it. Now we do but old habits die hard and I still go for the cheap stuff in the big box store. I would love to try some and then convince myself that it is worth the price. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Ah, Aurifil! How I'd love to sit on the couch with my hexies and some of your lovely, smooth thread. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  78. I have used it in the past for piecing. Aurifil did not clump together nor break off in my machine. Used 50 wt. Loved it. Would love to try some more.

    ReplyDelete
  79. One of my LQS just started carrying Aurifil. So far they only carry 40wt. I bought some in white for piecing. I like it, but I'd love to get my hands on some 50wt.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I've never used Aurifil thread, I guess because I've never seen it in our tiny little quilt store and it is 100 miles to the next one!! Would love to try it though. Thanks for the chance to win some.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I've heard such great things about Aurifil thread but I haven't found any in my local shops. I'd love to try them out on my very special Hexagon Park quilt that I've been too scaredy cat to get on with - confidence boosting wonder-thread would be ideal :)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  86. I recently purchased some wool Aurifil to try on a wool applique tablerunner I'm making. I'm anxious to try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Please please pick me! I'd love to have a chance to play with these threads. So far I've bought the 50wt Aurifil thread and it is a dream to piece with, but I'd love to see how the others feel and sew.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh my!! I have never used Aurifil thread; but would love to have the opportunity to win some...would definitely try it then...

    ReplyDelete
  89. I used Aurifil for the first time this weekend and it is unlike any other thread...smooth and silky!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I have purchased at The Glass Thimble in Columbus OH< I have used to top stitch handmade items and to machine sew patchwork pieces.
    I use a Bernina that is 22 years young, This thread is the favorite for both the machine and me. There is a lot less thread gunk in the machine
    I have purchased it as gifts for sewing relatives and friends.
    This really is my thread of choice.

  92. I would love a chance to try Aurifil thread. I have loads of good things and think it would make a great quilting thread. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I've been wanting to try Aurifil for awhile but haven't gotten around to finding any. I appreciate the chance to win some!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would love to win the Aurifil. I have purchased it once as I was looking for a higher quality, lower lint, thread. My Elna did not like it first try. After taking a machine quilting class where the teacher raved about Aurifil I decided to try it again. Absolutely no problem. I suspect that it wasn't the thread (ya think?) the first time, I suspect that it had been a while since I cleaned my machine. It's nice it's smooth .... and now I will definately buy more in yummy colors.

    How I solved the remembering to clean my machine more often problem? I always spool two bobbins of the same color thread at a time. I read somewhere else, a personal tip, that said "Everytime you use two bobbins, clean your machine". As I was already doing two bobbins each time, it was easy to add this tip to my routine. Toni

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love to try quilting with Aurifil. I've not seen it locally and have heard great things about it. I'm a newer quilter so I don't really have any allegiances yet, so this is a great opportunity for Aurifil!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Haven't used Aurifil for budgetary reasons. Of course, I never ate locally grown organic veggies until I tried them, either, and now I'm kind of a farm-fed snob! I'd love for an opportunity to make room in the budget via free trial :-)

    ReplyDelete
  97. I piece and I quilt with Aurifil. I love the range of colours, it unwinds smoothly from the spool and I've had no troubles with thread breakage. I also appreciate that the spools allow you to tuck in the thread end, so that I don't end up with a tangle of threads!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I first tried Aurifil when I purchased my newest sewing machine and I love it. I don't have to clean the machine as often and the colors are just my style.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I'd love to try some Aurifil, I've read so many recommendations for it but not tried it out yet. Lower lint and more accurate piecing, sounds ideal, plus I love colour cards :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. I've never used Aurifil, but I would love to try! I started sewing a year ago and have not spent money on the most quality thread until recently - and I'm still on a college students' budget, but I would LOVE to win one pack!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Aurifil virgin- I aurifil, you aurifil, she aurifils, they aurifil- I thought I would conjugate it!

  103. Oooooh, I didn't know about the color card! Aurifil of thread? Never - u can always use more! Bad, I know.
    I love this thread, I like to use it for everything, piecing, applique and quilting. I can't always because of the budget, but I do whenever I can. I get it from my local quilting store which is where I learned about it.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Haven't used Aurifil, and I don't know why! The differing weights sounds interesting though!

  105. I would love to win some Aurifil thread. I've read great reviews and would like to try some.

  106. I'd love to give Aurifil a go, its one of the many things I'd never known about til reading quilty blogs. Cant afford to try everything! Fabric always seems to win my heart and purse...

    ReplyDelete
  107. I have one spool of 50wt Aurifil that I won on another blog and haven't had the chance to use it yet. Maybe tonight....

    ReplyDelete
  108. I just tried Aurifil for the first time and it quilted like butter! I'd love to win so I can start replacing my fuzzy, cheap thread. Even the color card would be awesome as I'm now looking for colors for machine buttonholing! Thakn you!

    ReplyDelete
  109. I recently discovered Mr. Aurifil's thread for piecing...so fine and wonderful. I'd even marry Mr. Aurifil, I love him so much...if I wasn't already hitched, that is. But, a colorcard to remind me of him often would be almost as good!!LOL

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love Aurifil. I use the orange spool for all my piecing. I buy white and an off white or grey. I wind several bobbins at one sitting and then piece forever!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I use Aurifil for longarm quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I like to try new threads and ave heard a lot of good things about Aurifill.

    ReplyDelete
  113. My favorite thing about Aurifil thread is finishing the spool. That's 500 yds of thread! That means I did a lot of sewing! And I save the orange spools (that's what 50 wt Aurifil comes on) and use them to hold rolled up binding... if I ever get to the binding stage.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I cannot buy Aurifil thread in my area, but I was lucky enough to be sent a spool from a friend. I LOVE it but the spool is empty now and I want more!

  115. I just started using Aurifil and love it!

  116. I've heard so many good things about Aurifil thread!

  117. I used aurifil in piecing, thread painting and applique

  118. I'd love to try some Aurifil, I haven't tried it yet as no LQS sell it, but if I had a colour card I could happily buy it online. Fingers crossed

    ReplyDelete
  119. Oooh, I've heard such great things about Aurifil thread. I've love to try some. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Recently, it came to my attention that I can buy this incredible tread wholesale through work. I know, right? But I've never used Aurifil before. Sad. So I didn't buy any. Would love to try some out so I know what I'd be getting. Before I start ordering in bulk!!! Thanks for all of your beautiful inspiration, Lynne. And for the chance to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I've never tried aurifil before, but my cheapy sewing machine is such a thread snob! It will only sew with pure cotton luxury threads. I think him and Mr Aurifil will get on well.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Thanks, Mr Aurifil! (And of course you too, Lynne!)

    ReplyDelete
  123. I discovered Aurifil thread a couple of years ago, and have never looked back. I use the 50 wt.for everything - piecing, machine applique, machine quilting, and hand applique. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I'd love to try some Aurifil, as I never have before. It sounds amazing, and I think my machine would love me better if I used better thread...

  125. I've never tried Aurifil before, but I'd love to give it a whirl!!

  126. Thank you for your generosity! I have my fingers crossed. I've not tried Aurifil before but i'm struggling with Gutterman at the moment so I do need to try some alternatives!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Oh, I was just thinking about Aurifil last night. See, I have never used it, but I picked up a spool to give it a try. Well, last night we had a flash flood in our neighborhood. Luckily, we only had one room in the basement flood, not as bad as a lot of people. Unlucky for me, the one room was my sewing studio. I didn't lose much, but my thread cabinet was coated in mud. Most were safe, as they are tucked into drawers. But sitting right on top? My one lonely Aurifil spool waiting to be tried. So please please please, Mr. Random, pick me?!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Our LQS only sells one weight of Aurifil. I'd love to get to try some other weights! :)

  129. I've never tried Aurifil, but would love to. It's kind of a new revelation to me that thread matters, and I really haven't know what to buy. So it would be great to sample Aurifil, that obviously has some fans!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Wow...with 130 comments already, I can see that I am not the only one who loves Aurifil!

  131. I would love to win some Aurifil. I used it for quilting a couch quilt but I would love to try the different weights.

  134. I've never even really considered thread, other than the cotton/not cotton issue, so would love to try Aurifil - is it widely stocked in the UK?

  135. I use Aurifil in the 50 wt for my piecing, and I'd love to try other weights and colours. I know my machine sews well with Aurifil!

  139. Aurifil is not readily available in Australia but I would love to try it - in knits. not sure what weight would be best for that so some experimentation spools would be wonderful.

  142. I'm new to Blogland as well as the name Aurifil. I have a Brother Duetta and while it's a great machine, I've yet to fall in love with any one thread. The comments out here are so positive that I would be so excited to see if this is the match that makes me ooh and aah when I finish a project on my machine. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  143. Oh how I would love to try out some Aurifil! I have always had my fav thread brand for general sewing, but it seems that there is a whole new world out there specifically for quilting! how exciting!

    ReplyDelete
  144. Haven't yet tried auriful mainly because I have quite the thread stash already. I will give it a Look the next time I need to stock up. Although winning some would be fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Buon giorno Lynne e Aurifil! Ok that's about all my Italian but I would like to give that gorgeous thread a try - the colours are so luscious! Grazie!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I've never used Aurifil but would love to give it a try. I believe my lqs carries it. I will have to check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  147. i would love to try aurifil too as i have not used it .

    ReplyDelete
  148. I have looked at the Aurifil thread at one of my LQS's, but haven't yet purchased any... mainly because I've never felt like I've had the extra money at the times when I have been looking. I'm sure that I will eventually purchase some (but a win would be great, too!)

    ReplyDelete
  149. I'd love to take a gander at using Aurifil. Goodness knows, my current thread creates lint monsters so I'd love to avoid that.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I use Aurifil to piece and I've used it to quilt. I've never been disappointed and never use anything else for piecing. I use light and dark gray for that depending on the fabric. Those 2 colors blend into just about anything!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Love Aurifil ~ it's got the best colors!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I have heard many nice comments about Aurifil Thread, but as of yet I have not tried it. Would love to see how it sew when piecing my FWQS.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I've never used Aurifil before. I'll bet it looks great with all those colors!!

    ReplyDelete
  154. I just started using Aurifil after reading about it on another blog. My machine literally feels like it said "aaahh....." when I threaded her up and started sewing with it! Love the low lint and the way the light grey shade (2600) can be used for anything and is almost invisible. Thanks for organising such an awesome giveaway.

  156. I love Aurifil. I use it for piecing and quilting. The quality and color selection is unbeatable.

    ReplyDelete
  157. WOW!! That's fantastic. I've never used Aurifil, I don't even know if I've ever really seen it in any of the shops I've been to, but . . . since the whole thread thing intimidates me, it's not like that's the area of the shop that I go to first. ;)

  161. OMG, I LOVE my Aurifil..have been using it for a few years now and nothing else compares. The only time I use anything else is when I'm doing a donation quilt and don't want to 'waste' my precious Aurifil!! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  162. I'm a new sewer, so I've never used Aurifil, but I keep reading wonderful things. I would love to try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I love Aurifil because of what all of the others say -- beautiful colors, strong, and little if any lint in my machine. I have used the 50 wt. for piecing and quilting. Couldn't be happier -- except that it is not sold in many stores. But I don't mind ordering online...

  164. Me gustaría probar estos hermosos hilos!!!...no lo he hecho porque no se consiguen en mi país...tal vez la suerte sea mi amiga.

  165. I would love to try Aurifil. I haven't yet because I haven't been quilting- bad, bad.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I'm just getting to the point in my quilting where I could appreciate using more than the regular 100% cotton all purpose thread. I have an Aurifil five spool variety pack, but haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. Frankly, until your blog about it, I was unsure of the purpose of each thread. Some of the colors are pretty bright, so I might have to get fabrics to go with them.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I'm a newbie quilter so I haven't had many opportunities to try different threads. I would love the try Aurifil threads and I think it is absolutely the coolest thing that they have color cards! I'm sold!

    ReplyDelete
  168. I have never used Aurifil and am very interested in your postings about it! I hope to learn bunches about it from you.

    ReplyDelete
  169. We don't have any LQS that carry Aurifil but it is definitely on my to order list. I've loved your reviews and have my fingers crossed that I get lucky enough to win!

    ReplyDelete
  170. I love Aurifil thread. I use a cone of a 50-wt neutral color for piecing. It is strong and doesn't leave a lot of lint in my machine.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I love how thin and strong and lint-free Aurifil is. My first choice in thread!

  173. I have not used Aurifil before. I've not seen it in our area. But I would love to try Aurifil thread as I hear so many rave reviews from those who do use it. And why do I want to use it?? Because I'm Italian ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  174. I use Aurifil for piecing. It is very fine and the seams lay very flat and it gives me an accurate 1/4 inch seam. Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to try the other weights for quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  175. My Bernina loves Aurifil and therefore so do I. It works so well for piecing and the thread just lays flat in the seam. Thanks for such a fun give away.

    ReplyDelete
  176. So fun! I haven't tried Aurofil yet but if you like it, I am sure I will too! My fingers are crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Aurifil! Aurifil I wish to win as understand it is a dream to use for applique. I want to learn needle turn applique and this would be grand! Alas, Aurifil is not sold in my local area so this is the best way to try before buy (and pay shipping on top). Thanks for the chance. ti amo signor Veronelli a.k.a. Mr. Aurifil

  180. If you are Aurifil from supper, you a won't a have room for dessert.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I have not had the opportunity to use Aurifil but hope I do before I start my whole cloth quilt. Anticipating that it has to be the best thread to use based on the common denominator ... er word of mouth from quilters. :O) Thanks for the give away.

    ReplyDelete
  182. I use Aurifil primarily for piecing, although I have a heavier weight thread that I will eventually try on a quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I absolutely adore Aurifil thread. I use it to piece and most of the time for quilting too.

    ReplyDelete
  193. I love Aurifil. I have been using it for about 2 years now; both the 40 and 50 wt. Once you have a few colours you will quickly want more and soon you will have a wonderful "thread stash".

    ReplyDelete
  194. Aurifil - YEAH! I have been wanting to buy some for quite some time. And a color card would be just lovely. Thank You!
