Christa’s Year of Weekly Giveways #38 – Thread Destashing (2 Winners)

I love machine quilting and collecting lots of different colors, weights and fibers of threads. Recently I’ve decided to stock up on Aurifil as my go-to thread of choice so that means two lucky winners will get to help me destash my threads!

First up I will give one winner a bunch of spools of Superior cotton thread in a variety of colors. These are all 50 weight, 2 ply cotton which are great for piecing as well as machine quilting. I’ll even throw in the rest of my prewound cotton bobbins (since they don’t fit my new Bernina’s larger bobbin case).

20131225_threadThe other giveaway selection is also from Superior and it’s a stack of 40 weight tri-lobal polyester threads. (It won’t be quite as many as shown below – but however many I can fit in a flat rate envelope!)

These are great for machine quilting when you really want your quilting to shine! I just have too much, so I must reduce my stash (yeah and it’s really then just an excuse to go buy more, LOL!)


This week’s question to answer is simple. Which threads would you prefer to win? The cotton or the poly? I’ll divide the answers into two categories and choose one winner at random for each. (Unfortunately, due to shipping constraints, I’ll have to choose US winners this time.)

Leave your answer below by Wednesday, January 1st at noon. I’ll select two winners at random and will email them directly. (I’ll also announce their names on my blog during next week’s giveaway.)

Good luck and here’s to a great new year!

Last Week’s Winner:

Congratulations to Jacklyn G. who won a Joel Dewberry Bungalow bundle. For those that didn’t win, there are still a few bundles left on clearance, so stock up while you can!

    After five years of quilting I still consider myself a new quilter. Every quilt teaches me something new. This year has been learning the difference a “superior” thread can make in how stitches turn out. I’ve trashed all my cheap threads. I would love some of those beautiful cotton threadss that you have. .

    I would love to win the poly thread. I’ve just started teaching sewing to my daughter and two granddaughters and boy oh boy do they come up with fun projects that require different colors of thread. (Hope you enjoyed that run on sentence lol)

  3. Jennifer says:

    I usually go for poly threads for my piecing and use cottons for the quilting…and I do more piecing than quilting. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Beth B says:

    I would be very happy with either. I want to try some higher quality thread than what I currently use. I use almost all cotton now, but want to try better cotton and the ploy would also be great to have. Thanks for offering these.

  5. Andee McKenica says:

    Cotton is usually my 1st choice, but if the best color is in poly I’ll go for it. Love your giveaway “recycling” idea!

  6. Lenora Shoemaker says:

    I would love the cotton thread, thanks. I am teaching both of my children to sew, and we are going through a LOT of extra thread! Thanks for chance to win!

  7. Tabitha Keener says:

    I’m a new sewer and still finding my thread way so I would like the cotton please. Thanks so much for a chance, it is greatly appreciated! 🙂 HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  8. LizM says:

    Cotton please. I am still new to quilting and was told to match thread with fabric. So very generous of you to do this 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Virginia Keast says:

    I would like to try the Superior threads because I have heard good things about them and the colours look great for a huge applique project I am working on.

  10. cindy oneal says:

    there are just too many colors in the cotton bobbins. they would be good for piecing but the shine of those polys is so pretty too I can’t make up my mind. I would be happy with either one after all it is a gift. I will let you decide and thanks for your generosity. C
