  1. I have 13 spools, mostly cream and gray. I would love to win a variety. Also I enjoyed your visit to Quilters Square in KY. I really learned a lot.

  2. Yikes–too many to count! I have threads for piecing, embroidering, and quilting, so I am guessing between 100-150 spools.

  3. Wow! Probably more than 200. Comes with sewing everything. Quilting, piecing, clothing, embroidery…love the Aurifil for my quilting and don’t have near enough for doing those projects.

  4. uhhhhhh are we supposed to count them??? ROFLOL let’s see where did I stash them??? and where else, oh and there are some over there!! Hahahahaha ohhhhh wellllll 30 + or – a couple 🙂 I love love love Aurifil

  5. Have sewn forever…newer to quilting tho! lol Must have just over 100 spools of thread…at least! Soooo wonder why I never seem to have “The” shade I need? giggle…

  6. I would say I own about l00 but different types and brands. Why is it I never have the color I need for the project I am working on.

  7. hmmm…I wish you hadn’t made me think about this. I easily have more than 100 spools of thread! Different weights, fibers and colors. (Have you any suggestions for running Aurifil on a Gammil Charm? That’s their 18″ sit down machine much like their Vision I believe.)

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love Aurifil thread. You guys do a great job!

  8. Well it depends do you mean cotton or rayon and basically tons I love to embroider and love colors and feel like a new spool is a great treat on a bad day😜

  9. I have over 100 spools but I just switch brands to aurifil so not many of them. I would say about 15 spools of them and running out of some. Great thread works well in my machine.

  10. Pingback: Valori Wells Aurifil and Robert Kaufman Giveaway | AURIbuzz

  11. About 410 Total, not counting Serger Thread (150 for sewing, 250 for Machine Embroidery, 10 for machine quilting). Still never seem to have the right color.

  12. I own many 100’s of spools of thread, perhaps thousands.. I can’t count that high. You can’t just have 10 or 20 spools of Aurifil, with 50, 40, 28, and 12 weight, solids and variagated, cotton and wool ! All those luscious colors! You gotta have a thread stash, and Aurifil needs to play a big part of that thread stash.

  13. OM, I need to count then all? …In a cases I have 20, in my bag I have 4, in a jar I have 35, in desk drawers 7, a box with 65, in little bin I have 28, with ongoing projects I have 8. …write I have a lot of thread 167 spools of thread. I would live to win the Auifil because I hear it is fantastic and my machine will live me if I switch to such fine thread.

  14. I think around 25 not counting hand-quilting thread. Whenever I see neutral threads on sale, I try to buy a few extras to have on hand.

  15. LOL Too many to count. I do longarming for people and have an embroidery machine. I would say I am nearing the 500 mark! 🙂

  16. I would have to count, but I am guessing around 50. I even have a few Aurifil. You can’t buy the where I live. We only have Walmart!

  17. I currently own about 60 spools. I use Aurifil for piecing and own several spools of cream and mocha, always have at least one black, white and grey. I also have several spools in assorted colors for bobbins when machine quilting and for top stitching, machine quilting and hand binding! I LOVE my Aurilfil threads!!!!

  18. I have lots of off brand spools, but don’t use them anymore, so don’t know how many there are packed away. I have about 28 Aurifil spools….not enough as that is all I use anymore.

  19. Well, I’m almost ashamed to say this, but I have 534 spools of thread, and I’ll bet I missed some… all different sizes of spools, including polyester, cotton, various metallics, and embroidery. Out of all of that, 64 spools are Aurifil!! There is a reason I call myself a thread junky…

  20. Over 400, but I inherited my husbands’ embroidery threads when his machine died. I have no Aurifil yet, but hear really good things about it. I’ve been using a lot of Essential brand for my quilting & going through a lot of it!! One day, I’ll get to try Aurifil. Thank you for the chance!

  21. A collection accumulated over generations of sewers. I have to remind myself to test threads before I use them. It’s a thrill to find a wooden spool now and then.

  22. I do a fair amount of garment sewing for my little girl, so I probably have 30 or so spools. Thanks for sharing!!

  23. I counted 116, but I am sure I have some packed away with future projects:) Most are from my clothing making days and are not aurofil. Now I am slowly building a stash of aurofil as I make more and more quilts.

  24. Since I have been quilting/sewing for years, I have many spools of thread (at least 100) from several manufacturers. Once I tried Aurifil thread, I haven’t used anything else. My Aurifil collection now numbers fifteen and I will definitely be adding to it.

  25. Over 100 for sure…too many to count!! But I just recently began buying Aurifil threads so I would love to add to the colors I have in Aurifil as I’ve only purchased neutral shades so far

  26. I think I have around 50 spools of all varieties. Except for piecing, I ‘need’ to buy a new spool for every project – have to have just the right color for quilting, embellishing, etc., don’t you know!

  27. Hehe too many! But one needs the absolute perfect shade right? Oh easily over 50 (this does not include embroidery threads 😌).

  28. I have 16 spools of thread of which 4 are the aurifil which I use for special projects and for placemats, potholders, etc I use the cheaper threads. Would love to own more of the Aurifil

  29. I have approximately 30 spools of thread… mostly Aurifil which is my favorite thread for piecing and quilting my quilts. 🙂

  30. Seams like I collect thread like I do fabric. Too many to count, but definitely over 200. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  31. Too many to count, as I’ve just inherited some, all the colours in different jars. They look beautiful but are so old they break when I use them – I need this prize!

  32. I probalby have around 30 spools of unknown content, polyester and a cotton blend that I inherited from my mother. I have 10 spools of good quilting thread.

  33. About 38 spools, not counting ones that are pretty, but so old they can’t be sewn with, and only displayed.

  34. I’m embarrassed to say! I hoard spools like an addict. I have some displayed but the others remain hidden in secret places… So I’ll just count the displayed ones: 36

  35. I have probably 40, 20 of which are from a sampler that I bought a couple of years ago. I’ve never seen Aurifil in person, as it isn’t carried by any one in my area. I would love to win!

  36. Packed away in too many places to count since we moved in 2010; but I’m sure I have a couple hundred with all those accumulated from garment sewing since a child, now some from deceased m-i-l’s sewing room disbursement, some for serger, some for embroidery, etc., etc., etc.

  37. I try not to notice.but at least 60 or 65…..

    Looking forward to visiting the Aurifil booth at the UK Festival of Quilts in a couple of weeks.

  38. Oh heavens!! Way too many to count! I’m going to give a rough estimate and say three or four hundred, and I must say the Aurifil is by far the favorite. A lot of it is from my clothing making days, way before I had ever heard of your company.

  39. I have six Aurifill spools of neutrals for piecing. I just started quilting this year. I am doing free motion quilting and bought a set of 12 Isacord spools too, as well as a few Coats and Clarks when I first started out! I bought a couple of Guterman, but I think I like Aurifil better and am planning on buying a set or two in the future!

  40. Hmm, mine are packed. I would guess around 60. I have several duplicates of white, off white and black as those are common colors that I use all the time.

  41. Probably about 100, but this includes many old, old ones wound on wooden spools. They were inherited from former sewists, and are kept in an old apothecary jar. I have about 20 spools of contemporary threads, and Aurifil is my favorite.

  42. I have 25 Aurifill and 250 other plus varieties. Lots on hand for various garments but never the right color and slowly switching over to Aurifill

  43. I have 5 Aurifil along with many others of varying degrees of quality from all my years of sewing. I knew that there was better thread out there somewhere, but just didn’t know about Aurifil until about a year ago.

  44. 10 Aurifil all in grey, cream and white for piecing. I have a variety of other threads for top stitching. Aurifil is my fave.

  45. I have about 20 spools of aurifil – need many more! I also have over 100 spools of embroidery thread and probably a dozen large cones for the serger. Never enough thread and I love aurifil.

  46. I have over 200 spools, mostly Aurifil. I need to get more 40wt, and want large cones of some colors. Thanks for doing this again. Awesome company!

  47. Not as many as I would like! 🙂 I would estimate that I have 50 spools of thread in all shades of the rainbow.

  48. More than 200. most aurifil but also rayon for embroidery. metallic in multiple colors, heavy 12 wt in aurifil and sulky for hand stitching.

  49. I own 18 spools of Aurifil, and about 55 other spools. Some I inherited from my mother-in-law when she gave me her crafty/sewing stuff last year. You have the most awesome giveaways! Thank you Alex and Aurifil for giving us a chance to win the most awesome thread out there!!! 🙂

  50. I have about 15 spools of Aurifil and about 50 other threads. However, since discovering Aurifil I mostly use the other ones for tacking and such things. Thank you for a fabulous giveaway!

  51. I’ve got close to 200 spools! Why with this amount of thread, does it seem I’m always out of the color I need?!!! Time to do some cleaning I think!

  52. Don’t know exactly over 100 for sure, even “antiques” from My great grandmother. Thanks for a chance to win these gorgeous colors

  53. 75 to 100 spools and (horrors!!) not all Aurifil! In my defense, most of the “other” thread predates Aurifil 🙂

  54. I know for sure that I just added 27 Aurifil spools to my collection – my machine and I love them! I’ll estimate that I have about 150+ various spools, a few are even on “olden days” wood spools.

  55. I would say I have about 60-75 spools. However it’s like floss, you never have the right color so you buy more!!

  56. I have probably 40 spools of thread. My Aurafil is used for all my hand and machine sewing now and I use my other spools for basting my quilts.

  57. This is a estimate, I would say about 100, of those 25 or more of Aurifil, I have been sewing and quilting for many years. I am so glad I discovered Aurifil, I really prefer Aurifil.

  58. What a fun question! I have so many I can’t count them all — I would say close to 200 spools (woot woot). I’ve been collecting Aurifil threads for about a year now and I have nearly 100 spools of your wonderful threads in all weights including the floss! Love Aurifil Threads!

  59. I don’t have that many spools of thread to my name. I wish that I had a lot of different colors to choose from but right now it looks like I have 3 whites, one blue and one yellow. I love Aurifil Threads and maybe I will now be able to start a Aurifil collection for myself. Thank you for the chance to become a lucky winner.

  60. I’d say about 50. About half of them are cotton quilting thread (the rest are polyesters for sewing knits), primarily Aurifil 50 wt, but there are a few Aurifil 30 wts in there as well, in a number of very pretty colours purchased for specific projects. For the most part, though, I use one of three Aurifil cones (white, grey, and beige) for piecing and often for quilting.

  61. I currently have 65 spools on my thread rack, but most of them are spools with very little thread left on them and were colors for specific projects, especially garment sewing. I use those small amounts for sewing hexies!

  62. I own about 45, 6 being Aurifil. I was convinced to try it after hearing the raves of the staff at Sew Deja Vu, my favorite quilt shop, in Stow, Ohio. With a Microtex sharp 70 or 80, it goes through the fabric like butter! I’ve bought no other brand since and will and do tell anyone who will listen about this fab thread. I so want to win!

  63. Eeeek….. I have TOO many to count. I have embroidery thread, cotton, polyester blends maiko, sashiko, perle. and then threads for cross stitch. I love buying new colour ways for machine quilting ~ so there are a tin full of special variegated threads just for that. Do I need to count them?

  64. I think maybe 30 spools. I have never tried “Aurifil”, so it is added to my quilt store road trip this week to look for.

  65. EEEEEHIII Lets see.. I have to admit this eh?? I probably have at least 200. The one thing I like about quilting is I can use different colours thread to sew the blocks together.. So my stash is dwindling! I actually bought green for an applique x-mas quilt I am doing. Been a long time since I shopped for more thread. I do love the colours in your gift kit. Very bright and vibrant!

  66. HI, About 60 Spools of thread.
    Some of it is not too great, so I’m slowly replacing it with Aurifil !
    Thanks for sharing

  67. 200 plus, mostly rayon embroidery thread that i have had for about 15 years.. I very rarely use the embroidery feature of my machine. Quilting has now become my passion, but I have less than 10 quilting threads.

  68. Probably a couple hundred or more, but some of them are my collection of old boil fast cotton threads on wooden spools and the like. Never will sew with these unless absolutely desperate. Then there are all of the “junk” threads I got from my sister — the 10 for a dollar type back in the day. Need to do a cleanout.

  69. Question: not an entry. Your time stamp on my comment shows five hours ahead of my time. Is that what messed up the timing on the giveaway? I really wanted those bundles.

  70. I have probably 40 to 50 spools, and a dozen or so cones. I’ve been using Aurifil to quilt and I love it. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  71. I have about 22 spools of thread – obviously not enough for a beginner quilter – thanks for the chance to increase my spool stash by another 12 fabulous aurifil threads !

  72. I haven’t a clue as to how many spools I have. I know that it’s not enough, because I will always need another color! LOL

  73. Between my sewing machines, serger, embroidery machines, and long arm quilter…over 100! But a girl can always use more!!

  74. After sewing for more than 40 years I have fa too many spools of thread to count! Sadly only about a dozen of them are Aurifil because they are a fairly recent, (and delightful) discovery for me.

  75. that’s an impossible question for me to answer. I’ve been collecting them for so long But I’m grateful for the chance to win more!

  76. I have about 25 spools that I use for piecing and quilting. I like the 1200 yard size, they last a long time for lots of fun FMQ. I still want to try some Aurifil so I hope I can win.

  77. Count them OMG that will take forever!!!! I have 9 Aurifil which I have only started using plus lots and lots of other makes.

  78. I have 31 Aurifil spools, including a fantastic collection from Sheena Norquay…use these for my FMQ. Then I also got about a 100 different coloured spools of different thread and weights still from the time when I was trying to figure out which was the best thread to use. Happy to say that this has now stopped…I think that Aurifil is the best thread …just love it!

  79. 246 spools… mostly embroidery thread! lots of nice colors. Just got them all organized too! Would love for them to all be Aurifil……..

  80. I love looking at the colors as they are all lined up…just as amazing as looking at fabric all line up…or jars of jelly beans lined up! But I have to admit, I have2 drawers, one for poly thread and one for cotton threads and there are about 20 polys and 40 cottons…and out of all that… this week I needed 2 colors that I didn’t have! Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. Oh my, you didn’t ask an easy question. I looked in my all my storage boxes and on the shelves and I am a little embarrassed to admit but I have 157. I love thread. A girl just can never have too much thread. You never know when you need that right color of tangerine orange or candy apple red or passionate pink.

  82. Probably about 30, but some were given to me a long time ago and are very old-they break easily and hang up in my machine sometimes.

  83. I think I only have about 3 spools of Aurifil…that was before I learned about Aurifil and used it! Now all my other spools are being slowly replaced by color and I’m handing it to my girls who are just getting into projects… when they fall in love, THEN I’ll tell them about Aurifil! Otherwise I would have to guard my own stash! haha! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  84. I probably have 100 spools of thread, most of them inherited from my mother on small wooden spools. I love them! But my new thread love is Aurifil! I have 5 cones of that lovely stuff!

  85. Roughly 150, and I haven’t even learned to use the serger sitting in the box for almost 2 years. I love thread colors.

  86. I probably have about 50 spools of regular sewing thread and 12 or so of machine quilting thread; but I don’t have any Aurifil! I’d love to be the winner so I could try it out!

  87. I have over 50 spools of thread. Eight of those spools are Aurifil … I recently started buying one spool of Aurifil each month so I can add to my Aurifil collection. Winning this giveaway would help to add more Aurifil colors to my collection. Thank you for the chance to win.

  88. OMG! I have never counted, but as an avid machine embroidery fanatic I probably have 100 of machine embroidery thread and about 100 spools of other threads. One cannot have enough good quality thread!!!

  89. I have many, many spools (probably 50+) from many years of sewing projects. I think it’s time to weed out the old ones! Many thanks!

  90. I didn’t count them, but I probably have around 200. I use some for making garments and projects, some for embroidery, and some for quilting. Thanks for the giveaway.

  91. Not enough! I haven’t counted in a while, but probably around 75. Still, I’m always in search of new great colors. Much like buying an outfit to match a great pair of shoes, I’ve been known to start with a great thread color and then create the project.

  92. I have about 30 spools. I have them in an organizer, but I know there are some spools stuck away with UFOs. Everyone has UFOs!

  93. Too many and not enough!!! I have a lot of old thread from my grandma, but my machine only uses Aurifil so even though I have a lot of thread, my actual usable thread is minimal. I LOBE LOVE LOVE Aurifil!

  94. Great question. Wonder how many I do own?? If I were to guess I would have to say maybe about 75 spools of thread are in my drawer. Thanks for the great giveaway. I have been wanting to try this thread for a long time.

  95. I have several about 100 as I enjoy machine embroidery. Would love some more tho, thanks for the competition in which to participate.

  96. Since I just recently lost all my stuff in a flood, and am now having to rebuild, I bought one white thread at the store, so that is all I presently have at the moment. I am just about ready to restart building my stash and thread, so looking forward to begin again. I did buy some old wooden thread on ebay that I will use for decoration, but not for sewing, so I am not counting those. Thanks for the giveaway, and definitely look forward to winning one of these sets.

  97. OMG! Thats like asking our age!
    Big spools or little spools? All weights? hmmmm I honestly do not know. 🙂 But I do know I need more LOL!

  98. Goodness gracious, it would take longer than this giveaway is running to count them all! ☺ Life is good! Thanks a bunch for the chance to win!!!

    my nana maree @ yahoo . com

  99. I have well over two hundred spools, different brands, weights, colors and purposes. I still always buy more when i see something new, special, different. It is a fun collection!

  100. The only thread that counts is Aurifil, right? I have two regular sized spools and a small variegated spool. I’m looking forward to adding to this count, though.

  101. 5 Aurifil small spools and 3 large spools of neutral colors for qulting but I’m curious about using more colors in the quilting. Thanks for the chance to win some of Valori’s colors

  102. I have about 20 spools. 5 of them are Aurifil. I have only used 2 of them so far but I love it much. My machine does, too.

  103. I only have about 30 spools of sewing thread but I also have about another 30 spools of machine embroidery thread. I would love to have a better range and in particular some Aurifil would be wonderful

  104. I have around 60 spools of thread. I live aways from a quilt store so I want to have lots of colors on hand when I get the urge to quilt.

  105. I only have 1 spool of Aurifil (I just recently found out about it), but I have over a hundred other spools If I count my specialty threads.

  106. 178 but still seem to need more colours or the colour in a different thread type, only pockets are not deep enough to get them all

  107. I own four Auriful big boxes of thread–some truly delicious colors from Camille Roskelly and Color my World. No other thread compares! mommajaehn @ gmail dot com

  108. I own about 100 spools of thread. Most of them are for my FMQ. Thank you for the chance to win some of your wonderful thread. Take care and God bless, Cory

  109. The count is high.. the drawer is full and had leaked over to a second drawer now.. but it’s never enough! New to quilting, I never used so much thread for any project!

  110. I own a variety of threads, quilting, embroidery and threads for my George. Not sure how many but on the plus side of 100 for sure all combined. I own 24 Aurifil threads and since some of them are almost all used up, these would be great to add to my collection. thanks for the great give away.

  111. I only own about 6 spools of Aurifil, but it was on my Christmas gift last year and will be again this year. I just started quilting last fall, so haven’t needed a lot, and have two of the same neutral (I got one for Christmas last year).

  112. I probably have over 100 if you count the thread for hand applique, the thread for my domestic machine and the thread for my longarm. However, I now use Aurifil for all 3 purposes.

  113. As an accomplished beginner quilter, I have amassed a small army of various colors of many types of thread. In the past year I discovered aurofil and now am the proud owner of 8 spools of this wonderful thread! I would so LOVE to win more! Thanks for the chance to win!

  114. I didn’t actually count, but I have around 75-100 spools. Since I do some machine embroidery I have a lot of colors for that. I sure would love to add some beautiful Aurifil colors! Thanks so much for the chance to win 🙂

  115. I have 4 spools of Aurifil thread and I have become addicted. Just started quilting and I am afraid I see an intervention in the future! I expect to buy many more in the future and the gorgeous colors in the collection would continue to feed my soul. Thank you for the opportunity to win them!

  116. I own 7 spools of aurifil…and about 15 spools of random thread. I am relatively new to aurifil – only using it on the last two of my quilts. But I have already purchased more for two new/future quilts! Thanks so much for the chance to win some of your beautiful thread!

  117. I have never counted my spools of thread..probably 200 spools of embroidery thread and maybe 25 spools of cotton thread.
    Joan

  118. Ooooh, this question forces me to admit: I AM A THREAD ADDICT! 😀 All tallied, the collection is 200+ spools, yikes! This includes cottons, silks, machine embroidery, rayons, serging polys, metallics & specialty threads used in the bobbin. A girl can never have too much thread!!

  119. Not enough spools! I probably have 175 spools that I’ve been collecting for decades. I have them all in neat boxes by color and love looking at them almost as much as my fabric stash. Shhh! Thanks for the giveaway! Love Aurifil thread!

  120. I have about 30 spools of thread. Just starting to enlarge my stash and have been using neutrals to machine piece. I am now gaining confidence to start machine quilting. This give away collection would help me on my way.

  121. I have never tried Aurfil thread, this is the first time I have heard of your thread and would love to try it. I have 30 spools of various treads

  122. I have over 400 spools of various threads and not a single Aurifil. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while but can’t find it at my local shops. So I hope I win this contest 🙂

  123. I have 38 spools of thread. Eight spools of Aurfil threads in neutrals that I use for machine piecing. I discovered Aurfil thread a few years ago and it immediately became my favorite thread. I hope to collect more colors over time. Thank you Aurfil for giving a lucky person the best thread out there.

  124. I love Aurfil -have about 20 spools and use about 1-2 a month . the other treads I own are about 100-150 which i do not use much of .

  125. I have about 150 spools of thread as I inherited some from my mother that she no longer wanted. Am looking forward to quilting with your threads.

  126. There is no way I could tell you exactly how many spools of thread I have because it would take me all day and plus another day. Have spools of crochet thread, I have spools of embroidery thread, I have spools of multi-purpose thread, i have spools of serger thread, and I have spools of cotton thread. However, if you asked me how many spools of Aurifil thread I have 1 it is a white one and I just found a local store that sells it. However, I have not tried it yet because I got it for a special project that I have not been able to start yet because I promised myself I would finish up the 10 projects I have going first.

  127. I’m a fairly new quilter so I only have 7. Only 1 of which is Aurifil. My dog ate my first Aurifil thread so even dachshunds love Aurifil.

  128. I haven’t counted recently, but my guess is close to 150 spools because I use it for sewing, quilting, serging and machine embroidery.

  129. I am guessing about 100, I used to have an embroidery machine so I have a lot of that, not too much machine quilting thread for piecing and such. My machine is very picky! Thanks for the second chance at the give away!

  130. I have approx 100 but only 3 of those are Aurifil, which as I use them I replace them. The other are ther for color only.

  131. Too many! Or not enough? I’d say a good 300+ as I am an embroiderer. Sadly I only have 18 Aurifil spools, which I’ve recently discovered. It is now my go-to piecing thread.

  132. A very rough estimate would be about 150 … a combination of variegated, metallic, poly, and my favorite Aurifil quilting threads in neutral colors. I would love to break away and play with Aurifil colors!

  133. Too many that aren’t AURIFIL!!! As a recent convert I’m just beginning my collection of Aurifil colors ….

  134. I just counted and I have 39 spools of thread. This includes some yucky ones that came free with the sewing machine and have never been used!!!

  135. I have about 85, mainly small spools but my favorites are the 5 Aurifils I have. I would absolutely love to have more without a doubt!

  136. I purchased about 100 second hand online when I started quilting last year and didn’t realize the difference in quality between brands. I threw them all away because they were breaking on my machine and now only use Aurifil. I now have 23 spools of beautiful Aurifil.

  137. I would guess about 80 spools, probably 30 polyester, 40 cotton and 10 or more specialty like metallic, invisible, heavy duty jean, and what not. Could definitely use more, especially the high quality of aurifil. I think I only have 2 neutrals for hand applique.

  138. I think I own about 85 to 100 spools of thread! I’m fairly new, but thread has been almost as addicting as fabric! I love thread, especially Aurifil, I can definitely tell a difference in quality if I use anything else, which now I don’t. Thanks for the giveaway!

  139. I probably have over 100 spools of thread. I’m a recent convert to Aurifil thread and only have 2 spools so far but I know my collection is going to grow!.

  140. Probably 75 or so, some of them quite old that I keep because of the wooden spools. I dont think I have any Aurifil, but would sure like to try it.

  141. This is like asking my bra size; when I first started wearing one (buying) it was a thing of pride, now its something I hide from my husbahd so he doesnt know how much things have gotten out of hand. lol I only have 13 but I though it was too funny to pass up.You cant beat a well balanced Aurifil thread collection box plus some extra white thread for a rainy day. Blessings to you all.

  142. Hmm, I’m saying about 140 spools for garments and 50 or so in different thicknesses of quilting thread. mmm thread! Thank you for the giveaway!

  143. I’ll have to make a guess on this, but I would say… A hundred? There’s bobbin thread, embroidery thread, quilting thread, piecing thread, appliqué thread, top stitching thread, invisible thread…
    Nothing like a good thread!

  144. Over 100 for the different kind of sewing I do. Aurifil is my go-to thread for piecing, can’t imagine accurate work without it!

  145. If I start to count, my husband will ask me what I’m doing and then just shake his head so my GUESS would be around 30 reels……. and hoping to increase that soon! Quilting specific, I only have 8 isochord spools which is probably a giveaway that I am still a beginner quilter. My developing love is for FMQ which I intend to spend my retirement doing.

  146. I have 8 aurifil, these I use for all my quilting, they are basic colors. I do have many, many others that I have inherited over the years, most are so old I should probably just throw them out.

  147. I only have 11 spools of Aurifil, but overall about 400 spools, most of which are rayon embroidery.
    I would love to have more of these delicious colors!

  148. I have over a 100 spools, mostly Aurifil. I got a new Bernina sewing machine a few years ago and it is very particular about the thread I use. After trying out various brands I found that it works beautifully with Aurifil so I started collecting! Grazie

  149. About 35 aurifil and about 70 older spools that I don’t use unless I don’t have the Aurifil color. And then there is the bin of old wooden spools that I have a hard time parting with. I may be a thread hoarder. I want more colors of Aurifil, this is what I always ask for at christmas time.

  150. I think I only have about 10 right now. I found the perfect gray and white for piecing and I went a little nuts. And then there’s the other random colors I bought to match only one project. That just means I need more projects to use them up! Thanks for the chance!

  151. I have a total of 92 spools of thread with 29 of them being Aurifil. Some of the 63 remaining spools will not be used because they are vintage on the old wooden spools and are from when I first began sewing. Thanks for the chance to win a wonderful giveaway!

  152. I recently was introduced to Auriful thread by Jan Manley. I contacted her via her blog about POTC quilt blocks. Since, I have purchased a total of 14 spools of Auriful. I am so amazed by the results in my free motion project, I will never use anything else. Total, including embroidery threads, and the “other brand” threads I have in house total 213. Wish I could trade the old ones in for Aurifil! lol 🙂

  153. I have about 50 spools of old thread that I am using up. I am anxious to try Aurifil thread! I have heard nothing but great things. It’s on my wish list!

  154. If I count the silk thread, the polyester thread AND the cotton, Aurifil and others, I probably have about 500 spools. Worse yet, I save all the empty spools — one string for each year I’ve been quilting. Egad!

  155. I must have over three hundred. I have some. from my grandmother and my mom… I have used almost all of them for time to time. I have a wooden quilting thread that my grandmother gave me before she moved away..Love the colors and texture

  156. I only have 3 Aurifil spools but I have probably 30 misc spools in various colors some I have bought but most were inherited. Been saving up for a Aurifil bundle but winning would be even better!

  157. I have over a hundred but not nearly enough aurifil – only about a dozen. Love the aurifil for quilting and applique!

  158. I have over 200 spools of all kinds and brands. But I just discovered Aurifil because a friend told me to try it and I love it for and sewing hexies.

  159. I have more spools of thread than I care to take the time to count. I have been sewing for many years, and you can’t have enough colors in your thread stash!

  160. i was a sulky user , then i bought a sample pack of your thread and now your my go to thread. just love it. so i just have a sample pack of 4 aurifil mako.

  161. I have about 50 spools but not the turquoise I need to finish a binding. However one of the those in the giveaway looks like the right colour.

  162. My best guess is about 50. Some of it is pretty old. I have only recently started getting some Aurifil thread and have about 6 spools.

  163. I have over 75 and just got my first box of Aurifil thread in the mail this week so excited to try this new thread.

  164. I have 3 of Dove Grey and about 24 of other brands and colors. Dove Grey is my go to for everything from piecing to hand appliqué to FMQ. It’s also my machine’s favorite. I would love to have others colors and am trying to increase my collection, one spool at a time.

  165. I love Aurifil thread!!! I have Aurifil thread in basic colors about 20 spools that are boring but would love these beautiful Valori Wells colors for quilting patterns on the top of a quilt. I love bright colors so “pick me, pick me” LOL!!!!

  166. It’s not thread unless it’s aurifil. I have all tapes, greys, blacks, and whites, but no colors. I would love to win the colors. I have 25 spools and use it for piecing.

  167. I have a lot of thread but a couple of years ago I started using Aurifil. I love all the colors of Aurifil. It is the only thread I use!😊😊😊

  168. I’m just guessing because i have been sewing in some capacity for most of my life 40 to 50 but non are Aurifil.

  169. Thankfully, I inherited my mother’s thread collection, so I have a couple hundred spools of thread. Not all great quality, but I love them all the same.

  170. I’m going to say at least 100 but I did not find the right color brown for the quilting I was going to do yesterday! Figures, doesn’t it!

  171. I’m guestimating that I have around 100 spools of thread, but precious little Aurifil, as I only discovered it recently.

  172. I have around 26 spools of good thread of various sizes for piecing and quilting. I have another bunch of pretty junky stuff I use for hand mending.

  173. only about 15…but just got my first set of Aurifil (sara Lawson version) and am in love….need more…find me luck!

  174. 200+, 30+ are aurifil, one drawer with with over 25 old ones is to keep my grandson occupied when he visits. He loves to sort them, stack them and watch then unwind. I just cut off the unwound thread and discard.

  175. I have over 100 spools of thread but only 10 are Aurifil because I have only recently seen the light. It does make a difference as several instructors have told me.

  176. About 20. I am trying to use up the junk thread with hand basting hexies and only use quality thread in my Bernina. Aurifil is fast taking over my favorite spot and has been the only thread I have purchased of late.

  177. I’ve just begun using Aurifil and have about six individual spools and one small designer set. Love, love, love the texture, weight, and beauty of the Aurifil and hope to purchase more. Thanks for this opportunity.

  178. I have about 20 spools of thread but sadly none of them are Aurifil thread. I have heard so many good things about Aurifil and would love to try. Thank you!

  179. Over 100, a lot especially since I stopped using all the other brands, I guess I should throw all the old stuff away. I would never sew with anything other than Aurifil. I do have a large variety of blue/denims to patch up my sweeties work jeans. What a great guy, some of his jeans have 3 or more patches.

  180. I have at leat 80 spools of various types of thread but aurifil is my favorite and I never have less than 10 spools of it on hand

  181. I estimated I have about 25 spools of thread. Most are white, grey an tones of beige. Would love more colors.

  182. I have quite a lot as I used to sew clothes for my kids but I didn’t even notice the fiber content. It was only about matching colors. I’ve learned so much as a quilter and have recently discovered aurifill. It is by far my favorite for piecing and quilting. The collections with all the colors make me drool! I would choose fabric for a quilt just to go with those threads!

  183. I have about 60 spools of thread, most of them the “other” brand – but I would love to try Aurifil – I am a big fan of Camille Roskelley and Joanna from Fig Tree and they both rave about Aurifil. Also, no stockists close by so hopefully that will change soon as Aurifil grows in popularity

  184. I have more than I can count and eveytime that I start a new project, it needs more thread in the proper colour.

  185. I have about 60 embroidery threads & don’t know how many regular threads I have. It would be so exciting to add these to my collection.

  186. I probably have around 40 spools. I just bought 2 spools of Aurifil and love it!! Not sure why I waited so long to use Aurifil!! Nice giveaway!! Hope I’m one of the winners!!!

  187. Is “Too Many To Count” an okay answer? I piece exclusively with Aurifil 2021 in 50/2 so I always have an extra two or three in hand although one of the large cones sews on and on. I have many other colors in smaller spools for quilting and a large cone in white. 40/2. I could never have too much Aurifil thread. Thanks for the chance to win … 🙂 Pat

  188. How many? Really? To many to count. Over a 100 of sewing thread and more than 200 of embroidery thread. I have been using Aurifil 50/2 for piecing for a while and I love it.

  189. To actually count the number of spools of thread I have would take a while. I have embroidery, quilting, regular sewing thread, serger and it could go on. I would love to replace it all with Aurifu, maybe one day.

  190. I have almost 300 spools, not including embroidery thread. About 200 of those are a collection of vintage spools in a pretty oak rack, many of which I inherited from my great aunt and mom who were wonderful seamstresses. Only 100 or so are what I currently use for quilting and sewing, 1/2 of those, of course are Aurifil.

  191. Somewhere around 60 spools. But not all the high quality of Aurifil…I’m slowly building my Aurifil collection.

  192. I have hundreds of spools of thread, but only a couple of Aurifil. Would love to own more of it. Great thread.

  193. I have about 40 polyester threads for embroidery, about 10 silk for hand applique (and quilting when I want a fine line), and about 100 cotton spools, about 30 of which are aurifil. I have been exclusively buying aurifil for the past couple of years so i anticipate to eventually phase out my other cotton threads.

  194. I have over 75 but no Aurifil at all 😦 I’m desperate to try it! My best friend swears by it and it would be great to win 🙂

  195. I have too many to count. I love thread. have about, 15-25 Aurifil and I love the thread.Thank you forgiving me a chance to win. I would love to win. Thankyou so much.

  196. I tend to use mostly neutrals and generally use a whole spool before moving on to the next. I do not have a wide colour range and probably have about 25 spools.

  197. WAY too many to count. Lots of Aurifil for piecing, but also have Longarm machine with 13 years worth of large thread cones. Have enjoyed the collections of 12 large spools of Aurifil.

  198. Too many , but not enough!!! As I do all kinds of sewing, from longarm to embroidery, plus embellishment, the assortment is endless. problem is, never the color I need when it comes time to sew!!!

  199. I have ca. 200 Spools of thread. Most of them are from my passed Mother (she was a seamstress) and a few I bought for myself. And I’ve a few rolls of Silkspool for my handapplique.
    I think I’ve to throw away some of them but they are all in a good condition and like most of the others I like to grab the perfect color for my fabric.
    Thanks for the chance to win.
    Quilty Greetings

  200. I love sewing and I love colour – having the perfect colour thread is a must for me. I have 205 spools of thread. Eight spools of the total are for bra making only. I’ve spent the last few weeks frantically trying to find a place to buy Aurifil, ending with success this last week! My search was urgent as a number of spools in my collection are too old, or the wrong kind of thread, to use on new projects. Since I have two baby panel quilts ready to sew – just had to find Aurifil for them. I am thrilled that 28 of the total are Aurifil, even though the purchase wrecked my budget. I found the perfect colours for my quilt panels!! I am really excited about the Aurifil colours – they are so vibrant, and the thread itself is amazing for texture and sheen – just love it! I am in love with Italian fabric – sheets, yardage for sewing, etc. And to discover Aurifil, actually touch the spools and take them home, just made my day! My goal is to have every colour – winning would really help my budget and my creativity! Thank you for offering such a wonderful and incredibly useful giveaway. 🙂
