two may giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month’s giveaways feature a collection of 12 Aurifil Wool Threads and 3 yards of Okan Arts vintage kimono wool. Each giveaway is valued at $148 (two total).
Alex Veronelli, the irreverent spokesman for Aurifil Threads, announced that 2016 would be The Year of Wool. To celebrate this wonderful textile fiber that comes from sheep, Aurifil has produced 12 wt. wool thread in an awesome range of colors. The spools in the giveaway collections are 383 yards each.
For Sue Spargo followers, these threads are a perfect weight for your applique and hand embroidery projects. Or use these threads in your sewing machine for free-motion quilting, or your long-arm for bobbin work.
Paired with the threads are three-yard pieces of vintage ikat-woven kimono wool—with dancing butterflies on a deep olive. Although Okan Arts does not sell kimono wool online, over 60 bolts are available to peruse in the Seattle shop.
This fabric is perfect for a stitched table runner that reaches across a long table and dramatically drops down each end. For a modern look, use wool felt for the batting.
To participate in the May giveaways, answer this question in the Comment Box below: Have you used wool in your quilting or stitch projects?
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED AND THE WINNERS HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED.
