Our newest giveaway sponsor is Aurifil Threads and as it says on their website - 'perfectly suited for every quilt project'.

But there is more!  12wt wool for Folk Art and country style stitches; Aurifloss - 6 strands cotton thread on precious spools; and Aurifil Monofilament Invisible Thread.

There are 4 cotton thread weights from Aurifil and if you are a winner, you'll get to try them.

100% MAKO' COTTON 12 WT for heavier thread effects for cross stitch, lace, long arm quilting, machine applique, embroidery, quilting and more.

100% MAKO' COTTON 28 WT for cross stitch, hand applique, piecing and quilting, and by machine when you want the thread to stand out.

100% MAKO' COTTON 40 WT for cross stitch, lace and machine quilting and embroidery.

100% MAKO' COTTON 50 WT for hand applique and piecing and for machine applique, embroidery, piecing and quilting.

We have six Sampler Packs of Aurifil to give away and each has 5 spools.

The Sampler Pack contains a 12ct Wool, and the Mako' cottons in each weight shown above. (Each package has different colors so you may not receive the pack shown above).  There will be SIX WINNERS this time so more of you get to try out this amazing thread.  So here's what you have to do.  Let's make it easy!

Look at all the Ladybugs!

This quilt theme has been very popular with our members.  We had over 25 members sign up and stitch these various ladybugs. 

The seniors who receive the quilts made from these ladybugs will be thrilled to receive them from our group.
