Aurifil!


We are extremely happy to announce that Minick and Simpson has a new affiliation.  Aurifil Thread!  Yes, that wonderful thread we all love now has a Minick and Simpson collection!  We had a little chat with Mr. Aurifil - Alex Veronelli at Spring Quilt Market and this arrived in the mail a little while ago.




This is a package of 10 spools of 220 yard 50wt thread.  It's perfect for piecing, appliqué and quilting. We chose 10 colors that work with just about all our fabrics.  All.  Really.  Blues, reds, cream, and neutrals.  The first shipment is on it's way here from Italy and we are taking pre-orders!  The package of 10 spools is $42.00.

The thread will be introduced to vendors, distributors and quilt shops at Fall International Quilt Market, but we will have it here.  This will be the only place to get it until November.

We couldn't be more pleased.

Good for you!!! I hope you will have 28 wt though because it is all I use since I hand sew mostly 50 wt is too thin for me.

Oh oh oh! Just right for handwork. I've got a question as to why there are 5 blues? Or is my computer screen in need of a color tune-up? Perhaps some are neutrals and I can't tell the color because ofmy screen! Whaah!
