Aurifil Winter Solstice Give Away

I’ve had an idea to brighten up the shortest day of the year.

The Aurifil prize

One of the Aurifil prizes

As the days get shorter I find it very difficult to get an early start on the day.  I really don’t enjoy getting up in the dark and I need an incentive, something bright and cheerful, to encourage me to get to work on time.

So I thought that I would run a quick competition to
give away four Aurifil thread packs
on Monday morning.

To enter the competition all you have to do is leave a comment below telling us the colour code number and/or name of FOUR of your favourite Aurifil colours.

They can be Cotton Mako’, Lana, Brillo or Aurilux colours.

If you need help making a decision, pop over to our website where you can check out the full colour range for each thread type.

To enter the Competition:

  1. You must use a valid email address when making your comment.
  2. Prizes will only be sent to addresses in Australia & New Zealand.
  3. The competition  will close at midnight Sunday 23rd June, Australian Eastern Standard time
  4. Prizes will be awarded by lucky number draw
  5. the Judge’s decision is final

So Easy!

Join in the fun!

Leave a comment telling us your 4 favourite Aurifil colours for a chance to win one of the threads packs!

Thank you

The competition is now closed

  1. The colours are gorgeous, but my favourite quilting colours are the neutrals – Dove, Stone, Muslin and beautiful glossy Black.


  2. Haven’t stopped using the Aurfil threads since being introduced to them last year. I have the colour chart now and wow some gorgeous colours to choose from. I love the Mako Grey 2620, sooooo good for piecing. Black and white will be once again used during my quilting. Looking forward to an appliqué project to try out some other gorgeous colours.


  3. I am applique crazy and Aurifil 50 cotton thread is my favorite thread. It slides through fabric like silk thread. When teaching applique, I suggestion using Aurifil thread as it is the easiest to use when appliquéing. My favorite colors are 2325, 2605 and 2905. Because of all the different Aurifil colors, I always find one of Aurifil colored threads to match my fabric color. I also use if for machine sewing and quilt pieceing. When traveling, I take my sewing machine bobbins that are filled with Aurifil thread in a Altoid tin for my traveling applique project.


  4. I love the colour and feel of the Mako range. I have used 4225 on several purple projects . 2890 was used in an embroidery project. My next quilt will be brought to life by 4812 and 2810.


  5. I’ve only just come across these cottons. Currently I’m using Mako 5004 and 2310. I’ve had a look at other colors and there beautiful. I would love to use more in my other projects.


  6. I am just about to start my first pieced hexagon project, and am looking forward to using Aurifil Cotton Mako 50. I like the basic piecing colours with a little pop of colour – 5004 grey smoke, 2600 Dove, 2000 light sand, 1231 Spring Green.


  7. I’ve only started to come familiar with this range and have started to use it in a project I’m doing now. I’m using mako 5004 and 2310. But as for the other colour choices I think a red or purple would be beautiful.


  8. I use Cotton Mako 50, my favourite neutrals are 2314 Pale Flesh, 2312 Ermine and 2605 Grey, favourite colour at the moment is 2230 Medium Peony, I’m also enjoying using some variegated Mako 28 and 12 in some hand quilting.


  9. I am collecting fabrics for a quilt based on Monet’s waterlilies so I am liking: Aurilux 5350, 5344, 5534 & 5234


  10. Love the way Cotton mako runs sooo smoothly for free motion quilting
    I use a lot of 2692 love 2277,2145, 5002 as well


  11. If I have to choose just 4 they would be 50w 2250 red, my absolute favourite, 2325 linen, 2021 natural white and 4150 golden glow. I use Aurifil for piecing, appliqué and quilting. Just beautiful.


  12. I love Cotton Mako for hand piecing and all the colours are beautiful but the most practical for me would be 2310,2505,2314 and 5004.


  13. I have a great collection of basic & neutral colours, but I would love to add some brights. The Mako 50w is my go-to thread.
    My favourite colours that I don’t yet have are:
    1133 Bright Orange
    2425 Bright Pink
    2860 Light Emerald
    2815 Teal
