As all of you know by now I'm sure, we at Chicken Feed Quilts love our Aurifil Thread! The strength, consistency, and quality in each spool is unbeatable in our opinions, and with 5 different weights it works for each project that we are working on, from handwork to standard piecing to top stitching.
In just over a month the President of Aurifil and their Director of Marketing are coming to our store to do a presentation on Aurifil Thread. The company is based in Italy, so this is no small trip for them, and we are thrilled that they have agreed to do two presentations in our Shop. The presentation is an hour and a half long and will be filled with information about Aurifil. There will also be goodies from the company handed out, and from previous experience I know that they give out pretty amazing gifts. For everyone that joined our Aurifil Thread Club at the beginning of the year there will be an extra gift.
Esther, Carrie and I will be attending a special presentation for quilt shop owners on October 1 and we are super excited to hear about whats new in their company and what their plans are for the future.
As for the future of Aurifil at Chicken Feed Quilts, our third stand for thread is on order and should be in our store next week sometime. The plan is to fill this one with the small spools in a wide variety of color shades. These small spools are great for when you need the thread color to match your project. I mainly use it for top stitching bags and applique.
We also hope to bring in more of the designer boxes. These boxes come in two sizes and contain either 10 small spools or 12 large ones in the main colors that the designer uses and coordinate with their fabric at a lower cost than it would be to buy all the spools individually.
Seats for the presentation have been filling very quickly, and we can only fit so many so if you want to learn more about Aurifil call the store or come on in to reserve your seat. There is a $5 fee for each seat, this will be returned to you as Chicken Feed Cash when you show up for the event, if you have reserved a seat and do not come you will forfeit your $5.
We will be closed on Monday, September 3rd for Labor Day. Our weekend plans are two family dinners, one with each side of the family which we do every weekend, a BBQ with friends, a trip to the Farmer's Market and an outing to the Corn Maze. On Tuesday I will be sending two of my boys off to school. Do you have any plans for the weekend?
