This eighty weight Cotton Thread by Aurifil was the talk of Market! For those who have gotten to try it, the response has been a resounding yes! No, I was not one of those people but I can’t wait to get my hot little hands on it when it arrives in January.
What is all of the fuss about? It is thin, so it is the perfect choice for applique and English paper-piecing. The stitches simply disappear!
And it is strong enough to use when machine quilting. I am currently working on a series of miniature quilts – and this will be the perfect choice. After all, we know there is a thickness to thread and traditional threads don’t translate well when working with tiny designs. But it works well when quilting traditional quilts as well.
But, first and forermost, it is the perfect choice for machine piecing – which is the most common use for any thread. So this is not a specialty thread. It is touted to become your go to thread of choice for ALL of your needs. With that in m ind, it comes in a wide variety of colors. And who can resist the return of WOODEN spools?
