    My machines love this thread!! I also like it for hand sewing. It just seems to tangle less and there is less lint in my bobbin area. Glad you love it also.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I first learned about Aurifil a little over a year and a half ago ... and til then didn;t realize there could be such a difference in thread! Now I've become a thread snob, I guess!

    As a point of interest for you ... you might want to check out Tristan Threads, as my delivered price comes out lower than what you are paying. And I know many of your fellow Americans are purchasing from them as well.

    I buy the door crashers and grab bags of Aurifil at Tristan's. It's the only place I buy it. Even with shipping it's cheaper then anywhere else I've seen. http://www.tristan.bc.ca/cart/home.php?cat=36 Genziana cotton is exactly like Aurifil but cost a little more. I love the Tre Stelle bobbin thread on the large cone: http://www.tristan.bc.ca/cart/produc...&cat=31&page=1 it's all Italian made thread.
    Got fabric?

    I get so confused on thread weight. What is 12 wt used for?
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    The single spools of Aurifil at Thristan are not being replaced. The grab bags or door crashers are the better buy. 12 wt thread is perfect for hand embrodiery, better then floss. It's a thicker thread and adds texture to fabric. Tristan stocks Genziana cotton thread which is the same as Aurifil. Just different names. I have emailed and bugged those nice people with many questions. I learned a lot.
