Aurifil thread has been my go-to thread for the past 8 years. I use it in ALL of my piecing. The light weight of the 50 wt threads means there isn’t excess bulk from the thread, increasing the accuracy of my piecing. I love the strength and quality of the thread even though it is light weight. I also feel like I have much less lint in my machine as a result,

In addition to the high quality, Aurifil threads are available in the most luscious colors! For my collection I definitely went with my favorite basic, primary colors

but since this is the thread I use for my everyday piecing, I wanted to include a lot of light options that read neutral and therefore work with a variety of piecing projects.

The darker, vibrant colors are perfect options for binding, machine applique, or other times you need to match a color to a project.

In conjunction with the release of my Everyday Favorites collection, the Aurifil AURIBUZZ blog is sharing an interview with me about how I got started sewing and blogging, what’s next, and the inspiration for my collection. You can read it here.

The Everyday Favorites Auriful collection contains 12 different spools and each spool has almost 1500 yards of thread.

These collections retail for $140, but I have a limited amount of collections in my shop with special pricing of $99 for my wonderful readers. This discount will be available through Black Friday weekend. UPDATE: My inventory is sold out! (holy smokes!) But I will continue to take pre-orders at this pricing through Black Friday weekend. Those orders will most likely ship the first week of December. (Thanks so much for your support!)

I’m so excited to have these Aurifil threads on hand for years of sewing ahead!

    Had a similar rotary accident in June this year. Same finger as you. Lost part of it and part of nail. 5 stitches but the nail grew back and finger healed. I can relate to “I can’t even look at it”. But know that is will heal and look better. The feeling in the end of my finger is not the same but looks normal just a bit misshaped. Take care, thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Hi Amy – can I ask what type and size of needle you use with the aurafil thread when you are piecing? Thanks, Carole.
