Things That Work - DMC and Aurifil Thread

My favourite 100% cotton threads are DMC and Aurifil. I love these threads for their stitch quality and vast quantity of colours.  DMC 100% cotton machine embroidery thread is available in size 50.  I use it for piecing and machine applique.  Aurifil 100% cotton thread is available in 50, 40 and 28 weight.  I use 50 for piecing, machine applique and quilting.  Aurifil sizes 40 and 28 are wonderful for quilting and embellishing. You can visit DMC at and Aurifil at or just click on the button to the right.  I'll be adding more about my experiences with these lovely threads in the weeks ahead.  This is a busy month for us as we are teaching TopStitchers Club and preparing for the Creative Stitches and Crafting Alive Show.  Stop by Carola's Quilt Shop booth 101, 102 and 103 for a visit.  Speaking of Aurifil thread, stop by, see what Krista has been up to and enter to win a Mark Lipinski Basics box of 12 Aurifil 50 wt spools worth $120.   

Happy Stitches,
