I need the thread to make a quick applique cot quilt. I've discovered that this thread is great for machine applique and blanket stitch.

Thanks so much for expediting my order. I received it in time for me to take on my quilting retreat.  I trialled the threads and am very impressed with them and will be ordering more in future.  Thanks again for the good service.  I have passed on your details to my friends who will check out your website

Kind regards

Hi Jenny

I was tickled when I read your blog last night (from last week) about packing up thread orders and saw a photo of my thread order!

Needless to say I was very happy when these same threads arrived today. Thank you for the amazing customer service you provide.

I am always working on many projects at once - hence the variety of thread colours in my orders.

I have attached a photo of some of the small (approximately 30 X 40 cm) bright quilts I am currently working on. The orange quilt is finished and the purple one above is awaiting the new purple thread so I can quilt it.

I have similar small quilts (made from scraps that have been hanging around for years from another project) in green, blue and pink - also awaiting threads.

I am so relieved to have found Aurifil threads - I struggled with free motion quilting using every other threads, but since using Aurifil threads (40 and 50wt so far) my machine is happy and I enjoy free motion work and even some thread painting.

I notice you prefer 40wt threads for piecing and quilting. Since a lot of my piecing and appliqué is using batiks I find the 50wt works better for piecing these fabrics, although the 40 is good for quilting.

Kind Regards

Many thanks for the prompt delivery, the fabric is perfect.

Received my threads today, with many thanks Reds are perfect.

Very much appreciate the thread colour chart, it will be most valuable.

Prior to placing this order I had decided that from now on Aurifil was going to be my thread of choice from now on, after having tried a number of brands, Aurifil has proved over and above the others, for ease of use. for beauty of appearance, and best of all, better value for money. 

Taken me a long while to reach this point, as I've always thought "a threads was, a thread, was a thread etc", found that is not so, the colour charts will help  great deal.

Very many thanks. Kindest regards, Judith.

Hi Jenny , I

I have been using another brand for my hand piecing, and a friend gave me some 28wt to try, and I really like it. I am already a convert to 50wt for my sewing machine.  I'm looking forward to my parcel.

My lovely dark brown thread has arrived, I have been remiss in not letting you know earlier - it came on Monday, 2 days ago.  It is scrumptious and is just what I want.
