Aurifil Shenanigans

Who says Market has to be all work and no play? Are you ready to have some fun? If you’re attending International Quilt Market this weekend in St. Louis, we hope you’ll join in on the Aurifil Shenanigans. We’ve teamed up with 13 amazing companies offering some of the best fabrics, books, machinery, & tools in the industry. We’ve placed one extra large cone of Aurifil thread in each of their booths (in addition to our own!). Each cone is labeled with a color number. Entry cards are available in our booth (#1109/1110) and in each of our partner booths.

[If you are not attending Market, have no fear! We’ve got a prize for all of your at-home shenanigans as well! Scroll to the end of this post for details.]

Your mission, should you choose to accept it? 
Find 8 of the 14 cones! For each cone found, list the booth in which it was discovered + the color number on the entry card… AND if you’re feeling super sassy, take a selfie or some sort of fun image of the cone and post it to Instagram OR Facebook tagging #aurifilshenanigans + @aurifilthread + the booth in which the spool was found. We want to see your silly (and fabulous) faces!!

The reward?
We’ve got not one… not two… but FOURTEEN fabulous prizes to give away, one for each of our partners. Feast your eyes on the prizes below.

The details?
Shenanigans will be in full effect through close of Market on Sunday, May 21 (4pmCST). Winners will be notified on Monday, May 22.

The prizes?

That’s it!! On your mark… get set… GO!!!

Happy 85th Anniversary Jaftex Blog Hop and Giveaway

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JAFTEX!  Eighty five years is a mighty long time!  Congratulations to your family for your continued success! Aurifil is thrilled to be participating in this momentous event with our friends!

Jaftex invited over 30 designers, quilt industry friends and bloggers to help celebrate. Bundles of Henry Glass’ Folio Basics, Studioe’s Peppered Cottons or Blank’s Splash were sent to our friends and we asked them to make something special for our blog hop. They did not disappoint!
