An Aurifil Giveaway!

Hi all!  I am sitting in a very hot and sunny Athens at the moment and thought I would host a little giveaway from far away!!!

As some of you may have seen already there are several giveaways in blogland currently for Aurifil threads!

Well here is another one!

Auriful very kindly sent me some of their wonderful threads to try.  I have longed to try their threads for ages and finally when I did it was pure heaven! One of the first things I noticed apart from how smooth and silky their threads feel is the vibrant colours of the threads, I have never seen such a beautiful range of coloured threads.

When I tried some of the threads on one of my mug rugs for a bit of handsewing it was so smooth and silky it was a delight to work with and it didn't knot once which often happens with my current threads.  The sample packs above contain a selection of their threads, different weights and for different uses,  at this point I won't pretend to be a thread expert that is their department! 

I seem to be having a slight problem accessing their page for further details but if you go to the above link you can check their website for types of threads, collections, stores (where you can purchase their threads from). 

I would highly recommend Aurifil and in case you don't believe me why not try for your self? 

I am giving away 4 packs of 5 threads, international entries are as always welcome.

Simply become a follower of my blog and leave a comment to say you have done so.  If you feel like it then share it on FB or via your blog, not essential though!

Make sure you leave your email address so that I can contact you or alternatively check here if you are a "noreply@" blogger so that you can change your profile settings!

Giveaway closes 12.00 midnight (GMT) on Sunday 28th August, winner will be selected on Monday 29th August.

Good luck everyone!

In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.

You need to change your settings and input your email address so that I can reply. There are blogs that walk you through the process but fear not it is not hard to do!
