Aurifil Love

UncategorizedSandy Fitzpatrick6 Comments

Does it get better than this?! Today I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as an Aurifil Artisan! I've had a love affair with this wonderful thread for many years and have been using it exclusively ever since I discovered it. The quality is unsurpassed in my book, strong, lint-free, fantastic colors, and my BERNINA sewing machine absolutely loves it.

What an honor to be included in such a great group of likewise quilters, crafters, bag-makers, designers, and sewists throughout the world.

If you have taken a class from me, then you probably already know about this thread as I have been preaching about its qualities for years. If you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to give it a try.

My husband and I took a trip to Italy a little over a year ago and, although it wasn't on our original itinerary, we took a train to Milan to visit the Aurifil headquarters

 

This is me with Elena Gregotti and her Dad, Angelo Gregotti, the founder of Aurifil thread and Studio Auriga.

 

Now this is a priceless shot! Look at all that wonderful Aurifil thread! Oh, and those three great guys in the foreground too.

Alexander, Bradley and Alex

Did you know that you can use Aurifil thread for embroidery too?

So, I'll just be doing my little "happy dance" for awhile here! I hope you will join me in my celebration.
