A Closer Look at Thread

I knew there was a reason why I liked Aurifil thread. I just didn't know what that reason was until now. Well, I knew that it produced much less lint than other threads but it wasn't until I came across this blog post from Owen's Olivia that I really got it. You know the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" -- it's definitely true in this case.  Definitely check out this post when you get a chance.

  1. My machine always sounds better when I'm using Aurifil. It could be my imagination, but ... it purrs when sewing with Aurifil. It doesn't sound bad with other threads, just not quite as good! (I have a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0.) Thanks for sharing the post!

  2. Very interesting article thanks for sharing. I know Aurifil is my go to thread hands down. I've recently started using WonderFil Specialty threads and it has produced very good results.

  3. I have tried aurifil but must admit the lint off threads is not pleasant it seems to make me cough along with the cotton fibres especially when I am cutting out for a quilt

  4. I like both Aurifil and Superior thread.

  5. That was really interesting. I learned a lot and feel glad I only use the cheap/old stuff for basting hexies. Thanks for the link, Diana!
