Aurifil thread Giveaway . . .

This lovely package came in the mail, and Aurifil asked me to share it with you!
This thread has a great reputation for being stronger, creating less lint in your sewing machine, and having a silky smooth texture that makes it a dream to work with. FIVE lucky winners will get a five-pack of this thread to try out!

I've had an invitation from Rafflecopter sitting in my email for weeks so I thought I'd give it a try on this one. It seems to be successful over here today.

Winners will be picked on Tues, Sept 6th ~ I figure I should have time to pick them since school is already starting next week! Open worldwide. Good luck!

(if you don't see the Rafflecopter box below, just click on 'Read more') . . .
