Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Where is the sale! (I love aurifil!)
Always use aurifil. Best thread I've ever used.
Been using Aurafil now for a couple of months at the recommendation of local quilt shop's resident Bernina repair tech. Blown away by how much better my machines sew with this thread. ZERO problems with thread nests, skipped stitches, breaking threads, and virtually NO thread lint built up in the bobbin case, etc. I definitely will continue to use Aurafil from now on. He was dead on right about it being awesome thread. Also, the spools are large enough that they last forever. I've pieced 3 quilt tops recently and STILL have thread left. His suggestion was to get two thread spools...off white or ivory AND their light gray...they go with everything. The gray is amazing at how it blends so well with every fabric I've used so far. So I would say go for it
So, have you used it yet? Do you like it? I agree with everything that's been said. The only time I use anything else is for topstitching. I don't want a whole spool of a specialty color I will never use. Oh, and I have also used it for 1 color machine embroidery. Works great.
