Aurifil Thread Giveaway - Black and White

Let's talk thread! As Quilters and Sewers - thread binds everything we create together. Some will say the most important item is fabric, spend the extra on fabric, I say buy the best thread! Cheap cotton threads breaks and rots after a few years. Have a problem with your thread breaking try a spool of Aurifil 50 wt. thread! It may just cure it! Just a side note - if you have old thread that was given to you, use it as a decoration don't use it in your machine. Never buy old thread for sewing, it will just cause you a lot of frustration. When I needed a bag to hold my smaller rulers, I chose Aurifil 50 wt thread to zig zag the bag because it is strong and durable! I use white to sew almost everything light colored and that includes topstitching. I went back months searching my most used color and go figure it is Aurifil 50 wt. thread #2021, Natural White! It only goes to say that my other most used color of Aurifil 50 wt. thread is #2692, Black! Sometimes topstitching
