We are LOVING the Aurifil 80 Weight Thread

July 26, 2017

It’s just what we’ve been waiting for!  Have you tried the new Aurifil 80 weight thread yet?

Hand sewists are loving it for:

  • English Paper Piecing
  • Hand Applique

Machine girls like me can’t resist it for:

  • Machine Embroidery
  • Machine Applique
  • Free Motion Quilting
  • Free Motion Couching
  • Filling those HUGE Bernina bobbins even fuller (since it’s so thin)

See all the wonderful colors here!  Great news – we have them all!

The only question I have is…how long until they make it in the large spools?
