Is there a product that you wished existed? Something that you would find really useful. I have one. I wish that Aurifil would make sample boxes. Something similar to the Superior Threads donut but with a lid to keep out the dust. There is a lovely French made thread call Fil au Chinois that comes in tiny spools. See below. Wouldn’t it be neat if Aurifil did the same for a variety of colours of 50wt for appliquéing and 12wt for embellishing quilts?
Since I couldn’t find the Perle 8 cotton thread I was looking for I ordered some of the Sulky Blendables I had seen on Silly Boo Dilly’s site from Catherine’s Place. They arrived today and I’m really happy with the colours.
On Saturday I sandwiched the Autumn quadrant of my Kaffe For all Seasons quilt and today I machine quilted it so now I’m free to sandwich the small quilt that I bought these lovely threads for. I’m really looking forward to using them.
A new Perle 8 on the block
I don’t know if you’ve used any Presencia cottons but I have and I really, really like them. In fact I think they’re my favourite thread even above Aurifil and Tre Stelle which are also lovely threads. Anyway today I heard from Catherine of the aforementioned Catherine’s Place that Presencia also make a Perle 8. I went to the Australian Presencia website to see and they look beautiful! 119 solid dyed colours and 33 variegated colours! I can’t wait to see them in the flesh. Apparently they come in sample packs so that might be the way to go.
