In the case of Aurifil threads, I use them for a whole host of reasons. I love that they come in four weights and so many colours. I love that they produce less lint than many other threads and so don't clog up the machine. I love that the bottom of the spool comes off so you can wind the end of the thread there. I love that the spools are colour coded for weight so I can easily reach into my thread box and find the perfect weight and colour just with a quick look.
So I just wanted to say a quick thank you to both Superior Titanium Topstitch Needles and Aurifil Threads for keeping me sewing again this year!
