Aurifil Giveaway--CLOSED

A couple weeks ago I received a fun little package from Aurifil.

I received some spools of thread to try out.  I can't wait to find the right project for that variegated thread.
Aurifil has five different types of thread:
  • 12 wt cotton: Embellishment and Sashiko
  • 12 wt wool: Cross stitch and hand embroidery
  • 28 wt cotton: Hand quilting and blanket stitch
  • 40 wt cotton: Machine quilting and embroidery
  • 50 wt cotton: The best thread for piecing and applique
I received a spool of each type to try out. 

I also received a couple color cards.   I love all these colors.  I just want to display them.  These are all their wool thread colors.

And all the cotton colors.

These cute little spool were also in my package:

I admit I'm a little sad to give these away.  I love all the fun colors and could definitely find a use for them, but five of you will get a chance to win a set of threads from Aurifil.  Each pack contains a spool of all five Auriful threads.

Just leave a comment, and Mr. Random will pick our winners on Tuesday, September 20th.
