Philisophical Pfridays - Thread

Sew Hungry
Fridays are for thinking about anything but work. So grab a button from my sidebar to play along.

In my last post I showed my now pitiful looking thread collection. Only two spools have survived THREADpocalypse 2012. Looks like I am in the market for some new thread...

Have you used Aurifil thread yet? It seems like EVERYONE is using it but I can't find it at any local shop. Is it really as good as they say? Do you know the best place to get it online? What weights do you use? If you get some in your sewing summit swag can I have it!!!!


  1. I haven't used Aurafil yet, but I keep hearing how amazing it is. I even HAVE some, but I haven't used it. The weights confuse me. :/

  2. I have used Aurifil, and it seems to be machine's favorite thread. But I don't like paying for it or having to buy it online! I wish I could get it from JoAnns with a 40% off coupon. You can get it from Fat Quarter Shop or Pink Chall Fabrics. Some etsy shops too.

  3. I am Alex from Aurifil , Katie is right Aurifil is not available at JoAnns but only at LQS , here you can find my stores locator . Anne you can find info about how to use for the 4 different thread weights on
