Aurifil Club: Florence is ready
Ladies, Hard to believe but we are down to our LAST 2 thread clubs. We will not be having a Facebook Live or anything this month for Florence, but we will do something for our last one next month!
Your thread are ready for pick-up or will be shipped tomorrow (for those who signed up for shipping). This month's block is very straight forward. I will post pictures of mine tomorrow (hopefully).
With all this being said.....there will be a BRAND NEW club next year. It's not set up in my computer yet, but soon! It will start in January 2021.
Here are some details:
The popular 2020 program highlighted our favorite Italian destinations, a tribute to our roots and a chance to travel and explore while stuck at home. For 2021, we chose to shift our focus to an incredibly worthy cause that falls in line with our goal to increase Aurifil’s sustainability and positive environmental impact — Endangered Species. We’ve drawn our color inspiration from 12 magnificent animals, currently in dire need of attention, advocacy, and compassion. We are dedicated to highlighting their stories, helping to educate on their struggles, and working to create valuable change via awareness and fundraising. To help achieve these goals, we are collaborating with Earth League International and are looking forward to a strong and effective partnership.
The 2021 Color Builders were created in part to herald and highlight the very first thread weight produced by Aurifil: 40wt. They are a capsule of 12 mini-collections, each containing three large spools of our supple and strong 40wt thread — a warm, a medium, and a dark. Wound on a bold green spool, Aurifil’s 40wt/2ply thread is every bit as versatile as our 50wt but with just a bit more strength. It is tremendous for sewing bags and garments, or for when a more defined topstitching or quilting pattern is desired. It is also our number one recommended weight for quilting and machine embroidery. I have a few ladies giving it a test run and I'll have their evaluations soon.....
With your thread you will get a foundation paper pieced pattern and a machine embroidery downloadable pattern. I don't have pictures of the FPP patterns, but here is a
peek at some of the embroidery files.
Here is a look at the colors....
More info to come VERY soon!
