Mr. Aurifil Thread + Heading Home....
Before I get started I want to say this has been an amazing adventure!! I have so much to still share about our trip...the highs...the lows...the freezing and the fun. Stacy Gross West of Buttermilk Basin has WOW'd the quilt world again with her latest designs! And you will see it all on The Quilt Show next Wednesday. I have soooo much more material to share about wonderful quilt shops from St. George to Springville...and then, there is My Girlfriends Quit Shop and the fabulous program they organized. I want to reveal some of what I accomplished on this trip...but, we are just about done...pooped...tired and ready to be back home :) We will be off line to concentrate on the last leg of our journey home. Be sure to check in to The Quilt Show today and we will see you back here on Monday
I tell ya the gals at My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe both the Logan and Midway locations really put on a wonderful event, Sew A Needle Pulling Thread! Not only is Midway a beautiful location but the variety of activities was wonderful. Yesterday morning we were entertained by Alex Veronelli who heads up Aurifil Threads. He is second generation thread manufacturer. After his presentation on how the thread is made I will never balk at the price...what an amazing process!!!
The most exciting news is that Aurifil is now entering the hand embroidery thread arena! Their hand embroidery thread is wound on wooden spools...no more tangles...no more need to rewind your thread on card stock!!! I can't wait for the quilt shops to start stocking this thread!!!
...also they now have a whole line of wool thread!
Enjoy the slide show...Alex brought quilts made by a variety of designers using Aurifil thread...maybe there is something that will spark your imagination! Have a great rest of the week...I hope it includes some stitching and we'll see you back here on Monday :)
