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!)

Thread

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!

    I love working with the Aurifil threads and would love to win them. Thanks so much for the chance. Love your machine quilting tips. Great info!

  2. Patricia A Polmanteer says:

    I am just learning and have read a few articles and am starting Quilting made easy for beginners and I think COTTON will be my choice. Thank you for a chance to win.

  3. Suzi says:

    Cotton for me — I would love to try Superior’s threads. Thanks for the chance. (You’ve inspired me to clean my sewing room too these past few months!)

  4. Linda says:

    I am new to quilting and use both cotton and poly threads. Have not determined a favorite yet. Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  5. Gretchen says:

    I use both threads, poly and cotton. While I have a new Bernia 750, my daughter has an older smaller model and could use the bobbins. So I would be able to use the thread and even share the bobbins.

  6. Alexis says:

    Oh man! What a bonanza! What if I offered to chip in for shipping to Canada? I’m having thread shortages up here in the north.

  7. Rachell R says:

    Oh Christa, this is a great giveaway and gift!
    Cotton please!
    And, My little Bernina would love those prewound bobbins too! I really enjoy using Superior threads, and quality quilting thread is hard to come by. I never have enough when I need it, and it’s so hard to match thread.

  8. M. O'Connor says:

    I’d like to try the colors of the cotton threads. I’ve just started quilting again after a few decades, and am loving all the improvements in supplies.

  9. Naomi says:

    I am trying to get the hang of free motion quilting, which I have found uses a lot of thread, which gets expensive! I would love the cotton thread – thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Hollie says:

    That’s a great reason to destash now and restash later. Lol I like both, but have to go with the cotton threads. I love thread! It’s so pretty and there are endless number of projects just waiting in that little spool.

  11. Wanda says:

    I usually quilt with cotton, but I’m learning to branch out and explore new methods. Cotton would be my first choice, however–if I have to make a difinitive choice.

  12. Regina says:

    I am so low on thread so I would be happy to win either one. But since I have to pick one I will choose the poly because I usually sew with that.

  13. Linda says:

    What a great giveaway!! I would love to win the cotton thread. I do so enjoy you blog and have used a couple of your quilt patterns!! Thanks!
