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 has to mat…

Stitch on Prints

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"! 2014 is going to be the year of Experiments. "Stitch on Prints" is taking a turn from hand stitching only to include experiments in the use of different weights of threads along with varying stitch sizes on your personel sewing machine to create unique looks!

The Giveaway of (2) 12 wt small spools of thread is provided by Aurifil.
Please visit our sponsor sales links provided below when you need a new spool.
Let's Learn about ThreadsSomething different - take a few minutes and watch a few YouTube videos about threads. When I started sewing I knew nothing about threads. When I had trouble with breakage the ladies at my LQS said change brands. Then I learned about Aurifil and I will never turn back.

My mother moved her car today! She couldn't move it before because the ice had frozen around the tires! The whole driveway was iced like that. I danced across it three times a day to give my hens water (behind the garage is our hen house)! It was so cold the brooding lamp could not keep the water unfrozen. I am proud of my laying hens they still laid their eggs each day. Finally, school is back in and a little time alone! Are you happy life is getting back to normal? I know I am! It seems half the world was snowed or iced in this last storm.

Update - now we have slippery slimy mud! Be careful as the ground is thawing. I fell today by the hen house and was covered in mud & chicken poop, just a few bruises (mud is softer than ice, thank goodness)! My wounded pride! A bucket of feed in one hand and a water pitcher in the other, both went flying as I ended up flat on my back. My coat smelled so yucky. I sound like a sissy.


Look at these beautiful colors in these fat qu…
