Aurifil Releases New Thread Collections


I’m excited about the new Aurifil thread collections that are being released this Fall, with more to come at Quilt Market, and wanted to let you know about them.  They should be appearing in quilt shops and sewing centers soon, but as they are so new they may not know about them, so you may want to let them know about any collections you’d like to see them carry, assuming you don’t want them all.  LOL!  

Press Release from Aurifil:


Sue Marsh


Whistlepig Creek Productions founder Sue Marsh is known for her hand-drawn illustrations that reflect a sense of youthfulness, whimsy and fun. She has been creating and sketching characters since 1997 and recently partnered with RJR Fabrics to give her characters new life. Her fun, lighthearted collections of novelty prints appeal to both kids and the young-at-heart! Her debut Aurifil thread collection, Brilliant, is available in both large and small boxes and coordinates particularly well with Geekery (now in stores) and Monster Trucks (presenting at Fall Quilt Market).

Sheena Norquay


Scottish quilter, designer and educator Sheena Norquay is well known for her natural approach to design. She draws inspiration from the shapes, lines and colors of her surroundings. ”I am also interested in using quilted lines to create graceful movement, sculptural shapes and decorative patterns. Most of the lines are free machine quilted, a technique which is my specialty. It is fascinating how the surface of the quilt comes alive with the quilting.” Sheena is one of our heralded Aurifil Designers and we’re thrilled to present The Beach Collection & The Scottish Highlands Collection.

Partner Heather’s signature style of whimsical illustrations with colors that are sure to stand out and quilters are destined to create projects with a wonderfully unique aesthetic. While her collections are often designed with kids in mind, or at least grown-ups who still have a lot of kid left in them, this line was designed with the quilter in mind. Heather’s coordinating Aurifil thread collection is a rich array of 50wt threads, perfect for creating new masterpieces.

  1. The beach collection makes me swoon. The colors in the threads and floss are glorious. Since I have become acquainted with and started using Aurifil, I can’t get enough! I want them all, but I REALLY, REALLY want the Beach collections.
