New sponsor - Aurifil and a quick giveaway

Recently, Aurifil joined Shape Moth as one of the sponsors. I guess you know the brand from other blogs already and some of you have probably used it for your projects.

I started using Aurifil for quilting when I encountered some problems with breaking thread in my Janome. It was especially present while quilting pictorial quilts, with few layers of fabric, very often combined with a stabiliser and batting. I guess you can understand my frustration... few inches of quilting, frying thread which finaly breaks. Starting again, same story. On and on and on. And at the end you have a piec of some pretty nasty quilting which so or so have to be unpicked. 

I tried every trick with the sewing machine, changed settings, needles and finally I've changed thread (I had some Aurifil spools which I got for a sewalong in the past). And that was it! All the frying and breaking stopped. The Aurifil thread was same thick as the other thread I was using. The quality was just way better (and no, I wasn't using a no-name brand). Since then I use Aurifil for quilting and that will probably not change :)

Do grona sponsorow dolaczyla firma Aurifil. Mysle, ze nazwa sie juz wam gdzies obila o uszy. Marka dosc czesto jest wspominana na zagranicznych blogach, bo i nici tej firmy sa duzo latwiej dostepne za granica niz w Europie (choc to powoli sie juz zmienia). Niestety, nici nie sa tanie ale jak to mowia jakosc kosztuje i w przypadku Aurifil to jest 100% prawda. Nie uzywam tylko i wylacznie nici Aurifil do szycia, bo sa po prostu za drogie ale do pikowania do tej pory nie znalazlam lepszych (sa jeszcze firmy, ktorych nici nie testowalam, wiem... jakby co to jestem otwarta na wspolprace ;) ). 

Zaczelam ich uzywac kiedy zmienilam maszyne. Janomka jakos nie chciala wspolpracowac z nicmi, ktorymi do tej pory pikowalam i co chwila zrywala nitke (zwlaszcza przy pikowaniu duzych quiltow, gdzie bylo duzo warstw materialu, ocieplina, fizelina z klejem, etc). Probowalam zmiany ustawien, naprezenia nici, igiel roznych firm, a udalo sie zapanowac nad zrywaniem wlasnie zmieniajac nitke. Akurat mialam kilka szpulek nici Aurifil, ktore kiedys dostalam z okazji blogowego wydarzenia i tak lezaly i czekaly... 

Jak sie spojrzy pod swiatlo na nici roznych firm, to widac jakiej sa jakosci. Im bardziej posiepana, tym gorszej jakosci i latwiej sie bedzie zrywac podczas pikowania (tu pisze o nitkach poliestrowych czy bawelnianych, nie jakichs specjalnych). W porownaniu z nicmi, ktorych uzywalam do tej pory (a uzywam nici dobrych, znanych firm), nitka Aurifil jest idealnie gladka. Oczywiscie nadal bede uzywac innych nici do szycia czy PP (glownie ze wzgledu na cene), ale do pikowania wybiore juz tylko te z gornej polki. Szkoda mi pracy, czasu, siepania i zrywania nitki, wypruwania tego, co przepikowalam, suplenia i niszczenia quiltu.

Dzieki Alexowi z firmy Aurifil dostalam zastaw nici 'Simply Color', pudeleczko z nicmi bawelnianymi i welnianymi oraz dwie karty kolorow:

Thanks to Alex Veronelli from Aurifil I got some goodies: 'Simply Color' collection, box of cotton and wool thread and color cards:





And I have some small treat for you - a quick giveaway open till Monday, 22.10.2014 24:00 CEST

I have 2 spools of Lana Wool thread, 3 solid FQs and a color card for Aurifil cotton thread (as I already have one from the sewalong) and some extra gift in addition :) 
Just write a comment under this post and tell me if you've already tried Aurifil thread (if not, which brand are you using). I will randomly choose the winner on Tuesday. The giveaway is of course open internationally.

Dla tych, ktorzy chcieliby wyprobowac nici Aurifil, mam szybka rozdawajke, ktora bedzie trwala do poniedzialku, do 24:00. 
Do wziecia jest karta kolorow nici bawelnianych Aurifil, 2 szpulki nici welnianych Aurifil i 3 tluste cwiartki (i cos jeszcze w gratisie sie znajdzie ;) Wystarczy napisac komentarz pod postem. Jestem ciekawa, jakich nici uzywacie do szycia i pikowania?

  1. I'm new to FMQing and right now I'm just using thread from Connecting Threads while I practice, practice, practice. So far, no problems on my new Janome, but when I feel confident enough to do some serious quilting, I'll switch to Aurifil, for sure. I've read so many good things about it.

  2. I have used Aurifil and I love it. It just looks so glossy and smooth and it sews so nicely!

  9. I read a lot of good about this brand. And a long time dream to try to sew with Auryfil. Thanks for the chance to win such a great giveaway.

  10. Cześć Joasiu ! Szyję najczęściej nićmi Ariadna a odkąd się przekonałam o ile łatwiej się pikuję dobrymi nićmi - stosuję nici Gutermann, a ponieważ już troszkę się naczytałam o niciach Aurifil, kupiłam ostatnio dwie szpulki , ale będą w użyciu dopiero przy następnej, już przygotowanej do pikowania pracy.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Niebywała okazja... marzenie, by spróbować nici, o których piszesz Joanno: "te z górnej półki" Hmmm... nigdy nie pikowałam takimi nićmi. To co uszyłam dotychczas pikowałam nićmi Ariadna, Amanda, Coats. Czyżbym była tak cierpliwa, że nie przeszkadzała mi jakość? ;) A może nie wiem, że może być lepiej?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Do szycia używam polskich nici i, niestety, mam z nimi problem jakościowy. Ostatnio doceniłam jakość Madeiry, a szpula Aurifil czeka na swój wielki moment. Bardzo lubię Gutermanna i tych nici używam często do pikowania. Z polskimi, które są finansowo bardziej dostępne, przy pikowaniu miałam sporo problemów. O dostępności Aurifil na polskim rynku marzę po cichutku...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I use a lot of Aurifil thread, it works nicely and has such pretty colours. Thank you for the chance to win some.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I do use it. It is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I had the same problem with my Viking....breaking, fraying, couldn't get the tension right and I did the exact same thing....tried some Aurifil I received in a goody bag! No problems any more and there is soooooo much thread on a spool. I love that the cap comes off the bottom too.
    Thanks so much for the chance to win!:)

  16. nie znam marki Aurifil... pierwszy raz o niej słyszę...
    dawno temu pikowałam nićmi saba 120, później jak zaczęłam korzystać z hafciarki, pikuję nićmi do haftu marki GUNOLD

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh yes ! I love Aurifil, it makes the prettiest stitches on my Janome. Thanks !

    ReplyDelete
  18. I only use Aurifil for piecing. I was fortunate and a quilt teacher told me all about it when I was taking my second quilting class. She also gave me the tip of using gray for piecing. I haven't looked at another thread since! That said, I don't have a lot of colors. Go figure! I'd love a chance to win! It never breaks or shreds and I've never found a dust dinosaur in my machine!

    ReplyDelete
  19. No, I haven't yet used Auriful because money is a bit tight, but I would love to win this fantastic giveaway. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have tried Aurifil and think it's wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win some!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Do szycia używam nici Gütermann są naprawdę dobre a do pikowania Isacord .Wybrałam właśnie te bo bałam się że bawełniane nie wytrzymają nawarstwiania się ,no cóż na wypróbowanie czegoś nowego nie jest nigdy za późno.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aurifil jeśli mam zamiar przepikować dużą kołderkę (narzutę) w gęsty wzór typu spiralki, paisley, wzory w których wiem, że nitki będą się przecinać albo że będę "wracać" po tej samej linii - bardzo się do tego nadają bo są cieniutkie.
    Ale do szycia i pikowania prostych linii albo nie bardzo gęstych zawijasów to jednak poliestrowa polska Arena z Amandy. Oczywiście, głównym powodem jest cena, ale Arena całkiem się u mnie sprawdza. Moja maszyna bardzo te nici lubi, nie zdarzyło mi się, żeby mi się kiedykolwiek zerwały, no i kolorów mają mnóstwo.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ja uzywam do szycia najczesciej duzych szpulek roznych firm, rowniez Ariadny w roznych koorach. Lubie nici Gutermanna. Barzo chetnie sprobowalabym tyc Aurifill

    ReplyDelete
  29. I haven't tried Aurifil yet, I love to use Madeira Polyneon until now :)

    ReplyDelete

  34. I first used Aurifil when I quilted a shop sample for a friend and now I love it... I just wish quality cost less LOL! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I first used it when I received a spool in a fat quarter swap and after using it fell in love. It's so much nicer than other thread in so many ways that it's worth the price. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am currently using Isacord, but I have heard so many good comments about Aurifil that I would love to try them! Thanks :)

  39. Fantastic thread it runs beautifully on my Juki. Thanks for the chance to win some , I've never seen the wool thread before. I have some wool to make a quilt with but really never gave it a thought about what thread to use with it. I bet it would be ideal.

    ReplyDelete

  41. Havn't tried Aurifi still trying to find it as our shop here doesn't sell it so I normal use Gutterman but would love to win this so I can try

    ReplyDelete
  42. I really like Aurifil but I only have a few spools. I'm forcing myself to use my lesser brands in piecing before I buy more.

    ReplyDelete
  43. So far I only tried once. I'm saving them when I'm more experienced quilter and I'm currently using Amann threads which are available on local market.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Do tej pory nie miałam jakiś specjalnych wymagań co do nici do pikowania. Zrywanie nici i jej wypruwanie uważałam za normalne. Ale skoro można sobie poprawić jakoś sz(ż)ycia to czemu nie spróbować :) Zdać się na Twoją profesjonalną opinię wynikającą z doświadczenia - to żadne ryzyko.
    Pozdrawiam

    ReplyDelete
  57. I currently have a spool of Aurifil in my machine and love it! I have also used the Lana Wool for my wool applique pieces. I love how it blends in with the applique pieces so I can embellish them after securing them to my background.

  65. I use aurifil thread almost exclusively, just finishing up using my sulky. I love aurifil and never have any problems using it. I just wish I could find it near the small town I live in. I have to order it on line so I have to make sure I have enough for my project I am working on. Would love a thread card to make matching fabric easier.

  66. I use Aurifil thread for sewing and quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm an Aurifil convert too! I use to waste so much time with broken thread, since I switched I can't remember it happening. Now if I could only remember to leave a long enough piece of thread when you start sewing------ Would really to win, especially the thread card.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I just found your blog from EQ7's tutorial page! Going to watch one of your videos in a sec. I always use Aurifil if I can. Likewise my Janome is kind of picky about thread and it prefers me to use Aurifil. Now I'd like to try the Aurifil cone in my long arm...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  88. I ONLY use Aurilfil in both of my sewing machines! I LOVE the excellent quality of the thread! The colors are wonderful! When I look at either online quilt sites, a local quilt store, or even go to a quilt show, I always look for Aurilfil! I have never been disappointed in this thread and won't waste my hard earned $$ on anything else!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I am a diehard Aurifil fan! I have only two spools at this point but it's all I use for both piecing and quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Aurifil is the only new thread that I'll buy. Using up the rest here and there, but I've quit fighting the thread battles too.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I switched to Aurifil about a year ago and will never go back. I just used the 28 wt for the first time and love how it looks on my quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I too use Aurifil and love it. The color chart would make a great addition to my Fabricating Faces in Thread class. It is difficult to find all the flesh color threads in one place. The chart would help.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I use it and am hooked!! I don't use anything else anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I use Aurifil. it works great in my machines, and so many colours!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I haven't yet used Aurifil. It's not available locally, and we live out in the country where getting to where it's sold is an all day adventure! But I've heard so much about it, and I'm just starting to FMQ and would love to learn with the right materials!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm a creature of habit and Aurifil became my habit when I moved to Las Vegas 3.5 yrs ago & took my 2nd quilt class -- 30 yrs from when I took my 1st class!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I have tried Aurifil, my sewing machine does not like it at all but it is great for hand sewing. I use Guuterman for my machine.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I used to use Gutterman becuase it was readily available at my local Joanns and had a ton of colors. Then I bought 1 spool at a quilt show and I was hooked! The quality is just so much better. To save a little money, I now bid on boxes on Ebay and can usually get a really good deal :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Love to sew with your threads, just the perfect match!

  104. I'm definitely an Aurifil convert. My Pfaff domestic machine has "told me in no uncertain terms" that it loves this thread for piecing, fmq, all sewing.

  105. I love Aurifil thread but it's a little out of my price range. You almost never see it on sale anywhere.

  111. I am just barely starting to use Aurifil thread. I really like it.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Yes, I love the Aurifil thread but its a bit hard to find where I live (Perth Western Australia), most of my thread is either Gutermann or some thread from Connecting Threads that I purchased while visiting the USA.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Chciałam pobiec i sprawdzić, ale ... Kupiłam na Allegro końcówki różnych nici z likwidowanej firmy odzieżowej i takich używam. Jest tam tzw. mydło i powidło. Nie ważne nerwy przy pruciu, gdy znowu się zerwie, ważny kolor :D Ale jak już w totolotka wygram , hymm....

  114. I have not used Aurifil...yet. I use Gutermann, but if I win this, my loyalty may change...who knows. Thanks for the opportunity to check it out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I have used Aurifil thread from the beginning of my quilting life (10 years +) and have had no problems at all with it. Why would I bother trying other brands when I am completely satisfied and happy with Aurifil thread... love, love, love Aurifil.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Aurifil is the best thread for quilting. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I use Aurifil for piecing because I was having bulk issues. I really like how it melts into the seams making them flat.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Aurifil is my voice of thread. I love the large spools and all the colors! Thanks for the chance to win.

  127. I usually use Isacord, Madeira, or Guttermann. Would love to try Aurifil.

  129. Everyone on the blogs raves about Aurifil thread! I would love to give it a try.

    Thank you for this lovely opportunity.

  133. I love Aurifil thread, because my Janome MC6600 is a real diva in case of thread. Aurifil doesn't break and has a wonderful shimmer. My mom also use it for making bobbin lace.

  137. I've tried Aurifil's 50 wt mako thread (love it!), but I've never tried the wool thread, and I'd love too. Thanks for the chance to win! And congrats on having Aurifil as a sponsor!

  139. I am adding a bit of Auriful "green" to my current art quilt project. It was a sample thread gifted to me. It is just the right shade.

  140. I love Aurifil thread both in the sewing machine and for hand applique. I am starting to build up a collection and a color chart would be sooo helpful.

  143. I do use Aurifil and love it..

  144. I am gradually changing all of my thread colours to Aurifil as it is by far superior to other brands I have used over many years. The colour card would be extremely useful as I mostly send for my thread and so to have the card at hand to know the number I require would be a bonus.

  145. I haven't tried Auriful threads. I use Coats. Thanks for the chance, I would love to try it.

  146. Any contest with Aurifil is exciting! It's the only one I use for piecing my quilts. I think the color card would just add to my inspiration--it would be wonderful to have the time to use each and very wonderful Aurifil color! Thank you.

  147. I just started using Aurifil threads with my quilting. It's true, no fraying and no breaking. It also comes in handy when shortening a hem for the Mom of the Groom dress :)

  148. I've been using Aurifil for about a year, even leave it on my machine when doing garment sewing sometimes! I like it although my machines really dont generally like the thicker threads they make. Thank you for the giveaway and the reminder about how many large spool designer samplers they offer!

  149. I haven't tried Aurifil thread yet but would love to try it.

  150. I just purchased some Aurifil and will be trying it for the first time! I've heard so many positive comments about it, can't wait to try it!

  151. I have been using Aurifil threads now for about 8 months. .. I kept having issues with machine ... I thought.. but it ended up that after I had started to use the Aurifil I noticed less and less down time with my machine... Thank you Aurifil for making a quality product! ! Thank you ... Thank you !

  152. I started using Aurifil a couple of months ago when my local quilt shop started stocking it. I now won't use anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I've used Aurifil thread for about 4 years now, since it was rocommended at a local quilt shop I took a course at. I've had no problems with it, and the colour range is brilliant. The new box sets are beautiful, I just wish I could afford to have a reel in every colour!

  154. Do niedawna używałam polskich nici do pikowania (Ariadna), ale wygrałam zestawy nici Aurifil i podobnie jak Ty, ciężko mi sobie wyobrazić powrót do innych nici. Karta kolorów Aurifil to wielka gratka, więc ustawiam się w kolejce.

    ReplyDelete
  155. no cóż... jak na razie używam polskich nici (Amanda Arena), choć ostatnio przy pikowaniu na ramie dają mi w kość :( przetestowałam też nici Basic na dużych szpulach, ale z nimi podczas pikowania jest jeszcze gorzej.... do szycia ok... "chwilkę" pikowałam kiedyś nicią Aurifil podczas warsztatów... i tak - czuje się różnicę :D więc jeśli kiedyś wygram w totka........ :)

  157. Aurifil is the ONLY thread that I use! I love it and it works like a dream in my sewing machine. I would like to win this prize more than you can ever know! I need need need that color card!

  158. I started using Aurifil thread years ago when I was a pattern tester for Benartex. I was given one spool of 30 weight with some fabric and I loved it so much I have been collecting it ever since. I once drove 30 miles for a spool! Would love to win more so I can finish more UFO's!

  159. I love Aurifil for machine and hand piecing and machine quilting and next I want to try the 12wt for hand quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  160. I bought my first Aurifil thread at an exhibition I attended. It's blue varigated blue and looking forward to doing some free motion quilting with it. Some else new to me x

  161. I use both Aurifil and Superior threads on my sewing machines. For the Janome I mostly use Aurifil, since the machine is a bit fussy sometimes. On my old Husqvarna I can use everything, even Ikea thread. That old lady is not fussy at all!

  162. Używam nici hafciarskich Madeira i dają radę. W dwóch projektach wykorzystałem nić transparentną tej firmy i też dała radę. Chętnie wypróbowałabym nici tak zachwalane jak Aurifil.

  163. I love Aurifil and my sewiing machine does too - especially the 40 weight.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I just used it for the first time last night. It seems to work really well, blending nicely with coordinating fabric from Bonnie and Camille.

  165. Use Aurifil since 2010 for hand and machine piecing, quilting and sewing. Love its texture and shine. Finger crossed

    ReplyDelete
  166. I use aurifl for everything I do I love it and so does my sewing machine

    ReplyDelete
  167. I too use aurifil for all my sewing. No lint, stitches are beautiful, wouldn't use anything else!

    ReplyDelete
  168. No I have not used Aurifil for long arm quilting but would like to try. I have used Aurifil for hand piecing. b.j.day68 at gmail dot com

  169. I use 100% cotton Aurifil thread almost exclusively for piecing. I use the invisible thread on my long arm as I quilt when customer requests that the quilting be more of an impression than a statement. I am crazy about Aurifil!!

  170. I love Aurifil thread! I use it when piecing my quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I haven't used it yet. Right now I'm using Superior Threads Masterpiece (because that's what my local quilt store sells in light grey, which I use for everything). I haven't had trouble with it, but I haven't tried to machine quilt, so I don't know what would happen if I tried that.

  173. I just started quilting, and our local quilt shop recommended aurifil thread. I picked up a neutral beige and a red for the holidays. I am already looking for more!

  174. I could not find where to buy color cards so I can order more thread, so I hope I win something.

  176. I am not a quilter, but I do sew other things - mainly using Gütermann threads (THE easily available brand in Germany). Using other thread I never had much luck, there seems to be a lot of breaking of and sometimes even a sort of unravelling going on. Laltely I've been hearing and reading a lot of good things about Aurifil, so I'll definitely give that a try, if I can find it somewhere!

  177. I love aurifil thread and had the pleasure of attending a informational meeting with Alex Veronelli today and love them even more. The thread is made with great care.

  178. I primarily use the 50 weight thread.
