Aurifil Thread Giveaway!


 If you've been sewing or quilting for any amount of time you'll know how important thread is to the process!  I've recently, in the last 9 months or so, come to LOVE Aurifil Thread
Here's a little background on Aurifil:
Established in 1983, they're based near Milano, Italy, and create a huge range of cotton and Wool threads for both professional and domestic quilters!  They're big on quality, style, and knowing what drives the modern quilter... if you haven't looked into these threads, you're missing out!

My personal experience with Aurifil is limited, but I'm a huge fan of what I've tried!
That being the 100% Cotton Mako' 50wt thread!  I bought a large spool, 1422 yards (!) of off white and I've been using it exclusively for piecing quilts!  Let me tell you, it gives me NO problems in my little Janome machine!  Virtually no lint, smooth stitches, and its a very fine thread so when you press your seams open, or to the side, it lays as flat as can be which makes for less bulky quilt tops, and easier quilting in the end!  
I bought mine form Pink Chalk Fabric but you can find it other places online and also check your LQS!
 So there's my two cents on the virtues of Aurifil, and now on the the GIVEAWAY and what all is up for grabs!  There's a lot! 

 Sampler packs containing 5 different small spools, 220yds, of their 5 most popular threads!
Each winner will receive one of these packs, fun!  That's right, there will be 5 winners!

 The Wool 12wt thread is perfect many types of stitching, especially:
Cross Stitch and Hand Embroidery
Hand Applique'
Long Arm quilting (bobbin work)
Machine Applique'
and Quilting wool fabrics
Aurifil also makes a 100% Cotton Mako' 12wt thread, two of the above are actually Cotton, and two are Wool. 

 100% Cotton Mako' 50wt thread is my go-to for quilt piecing but also fabulous for:
Hand Piecing
Lace
Longarm Quilting
Machine Applique'
Machine embroidery
Machine Quilting involving very fine details like feathers and heavy background fill

 The 100% Cotton Mako' 40wt thread is a great all-around thread and  does everything from serging to machine quilting to cross stitch! 
 If you love hand work, this thread is for you!  The 28wt a bit thicker than the 40wt and is ideal for:
Hand Quilting
Hand Piecing
Lace
Hand Applique'
Machine Embroidery and Applique'

 So how do win one of FIVE fabulous little Aurifil packages?

This giveaway is going to be simple!  Leave a comment on this post saying which Aurifil Thread you would love to try, or that you already love

I will draw 5 (five!) random winners - and I'll try to match up your answer to the Large spools you receive along with one of the Sampler Packs... fun eh?  If you love embroidery, let me know!  If you thrive on hand quilting (or just want to TRY hand quilting,) speak up!
This is not a guarantee you'll receive the thread you want, but I'll do my best!

Remember:
Please be sure you leave a way for me to contact you!  If you are a no-reply commenter, and don't leave an email address, you'll be out of luck and I'll draw another winner!  True story, and it has happened in the past.  

Giveaway is open until noon (EST) on Wednesday, Sept 26th.  
I will email the 5 winners and update this post after that time!
International entries welcome. 

Comments are now closed... and the winners are:

I've been wanting to try this thread. I'm more of a stitcher than a quilter, but the 40 wt sounds like it would be good for everything.

I've heard so much GOOD stuff about this thread by the handsome and talented Alex on FB that now I look differently at my thread I currently use. Yours is so superior and the best part is "LINT FREE". Can't wait to try it for real. Budget is too tight to do that immediately. I know once I use it I will be a lifetime user. Thanks for a quality product.

SewCalGal said...

I'm definitely in love with Aurifil and would enjoy any spools that I could win. But, I'm definitely wanting to learn to use the 12wt in my machine as it too is such a beautiful thread that would look great with threadplay.

Designer Mom said...

I bought some Aurifil thread at a quilt show. I was saving it for a "special" quilt. But the thread I was using on a quilt I was making kept breaking. I broke out the Aurifil and was in a much better mood for the rest of the quilt. I hand appliqué, and machine piece and quilt. I'm not familiar enough with all the threads to know what I need. I would be happy trying anything. I only have an off white color right now and couldn't even guess the number on it.

Kathy Gordon said...

Have used this thread before. Any will be just fine if I win!""

EgayZra said...

I love love love the rainbow thread for top stitching. Looks amazing on quilts :)

JBuckister said...

I have never tried this thread but I would love to! Any of them would be Fantastic.

Heather A said...

I just finished a quilt with which I used Aurifil thread for the first time. I was very impressed with thread ... how fine it is, how flad seams lie when ironed, how little lint there was and, for the hand sewing part ... NO TANGLES! I haven't seen it for sale where I live so I bought some at a quilt shop in Kentucky when I was there last year ... just a few large spools of basic colours. Now I want the whole line in every colour. I'll certainly be buying more when I go back to Kentucky this spring.

Paula said...

Love the 100% Cotton Mako' 50wt thread. Been using it for a few months and never have any trouble!

I would love to give this type of thread a try. I mostly piece with a light colored thread. I do some machine embroidery. Very little hand stitching other than the last step on a binding. This is exciting.

Isn't Aurifil the best? I LOVE 50wt for piecing, and for quilting. I used 40 wt for quilting, too. And I've tried 28wt for quilting. I really want to try the other weights. It's so much fun to add something extra with great thread. Thanks.

What a great give away! I Love hand embroidery, and am really into wool lately. I'm just a quilter who would love to try any of the Aurfil. Haven't used it before. Thanks for picking me. :-)

~Kelie~ said...

I've not had that much experience with it either, but as with you, what I have used I ABSOLUTELY LOVE! I've only ever tried the 50 wt but I think I'd like to try out the 40 wt too!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Carla G said...

I haven't tried any Aurifil thread yet. But I'd love to try the 100% Cotton Mako' 40wt thread for my machine quilting. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Ali said...

Thank you for the giveaway! I am interested in trying the 28wt for hand sewing and paper piecing!

Penny Schine Gold said...

I switched to Aurifil a while back and now proselytize to others about it, for all the reasons you mention. I love the 50 wt for piecing (use mostly neutrals) and also for hand applique (use a wide variety of colors). Heck, I use it for machine quilting also. It's great!

Nati said...

Would love to try the sampler pack!

Irina said...

I'd love to try any of it,,but if I had to choose, it would be 100% Cotton Mako' 40wt thread. Thanks for the chance to win.

mara said...

I'm new to sewing so I have not used Aurifil and I am just doing basic project so I think the 100% Cotton Mako' 40wt thread would be best for my needs as an all around thread, I can't go wrong right!

2ne said...

What a great giveaway - love Aurifil :-) I do most of my sewing on machine so I would love 100% cottom mko 50 wt. Wish you a great and creative weekend :-)

Lori said...

Wouldn't mind trying the 40wt for machine quilting.

Misty Smith said...

I would love to try any of them since I have never used their products. I would like to try my hand at hand quilting though. Thanks for the giveaway.

I love the 50wt thread - I do a lot of dense quilting, background fillers, etc. and this weight of thread is fantastic! I just LOVE the Aurifil colours!

chefpa said...

I love the 40wt thread. Aurifil is the only type of thread that my temperamental sewing machine likes...and the colors available are amazing!

Paskiaq said...

Iwouldlove to try the 40wt!

cherylj said...

I'd like to try some of the variagated threads

Cal said...

I would love to try the 12 wt Wool for hand embroidery. I am curious as i have not used wool thread before.

AbbyK said...

I think I'd like to try the wool but they all look amazing! Ty for the cool giveaway!

Connie (CJ) Griffin said...

I discovered Aurifil thread 7 years ago and also use the 100% Cotton Mako' 50wt exclusively for my piecing! It really does make a difference in how the seam folds over and there is little to no lint in my machine. I've used it for quilting on my longarm, too, and it works great.

There are times, though that I need a color, rather than neutral, so I'd love to have the sampler pack with different colors!

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

I love the 50wt and have also just started hand quilting so would love to try the 28wt too!

B Greene said...

I recently tried Aurifil 50 wt for the first time and was amazed at how wonderful it was for hand-sewing hexagons together. Noo twisting, no tangling, no knots!! Amazing! I have not gotten to try it in my sewing machine because I am in the middle of another project, but I am anxious to see how that goes to. I would love to try any of the weights of Aurifil.

Simone Meara said...

I love using these threads, I use for appliqué and hand quilting. Currently using Mako 28/2.

Diane said...

I am already a big fan of the 50wt for my piecing. I would love to try the 40wt for my machine quilting. Thanks for the giveaway.

Diane Graham said...

I do machine embroidery and I'm trying to get into quilting. I have used Aurifil in a quilting class I took. A friend was talking about how great it is and let me try it using a spool of hers. I would love to have A spool of Aurifil to do a complete project. Thank you for your generosity in giving away thread to 5 lucky people.

Colleen said...

I'm not a great free motion quilter, so I prefer the 50 weight for that. And, it works well for piecing too.

Laura said...

I would like to try the Cotton Mako' 40wt thread since I am still new to all this and haven't ventured much beyond straight up machine-sewing. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mare said...

Never tried this thread but would love the sampler pack

LethargicLass said...

I would like to try the wool 20wt as I have read so much about it on people's blogs... thanks for the chance!

emiliehamilton said...

I would love to win the sampler pack ~ have read such wonderful comments/testimonials about Aurifil thread ~ will be working on 3 quilts this fall ~ a purple quilt for my granddaughter Cambrie, a red quilt for my grandson Connor, and a blue quilt for my grandson Zachary ~ so having the variety of colors is essential to what I will be working on. THANK YOU. I can be reached via email: emiliehamilton@gmail.com

I would love to try the 28wt since I can't find it in Paris. At the moment I am quilting with a 50wt variegated blue thread. And I love it!! So thin and subtle and lint free! Thanks for the great giveaway!

I would love to try either the one that is an all around thread, or one for hand quilting. I've never used their threads, but I'd love to try!
