Each pack contains the 5 types of threads that are used in the quilting world,  The weights are 50, 40, 28, 12 and a spool of their beautiful wool thread.  So you will be able to try them all. 
Pretty cool huh? 
I love this thread and wanted to share it with you. 
Now down to business.  Here's what you need to do to win these thread packs.

  13. I have so many projects I'm working on right now, but the one these threads would be perfect for would be my "She Sells Seashells" guild challenge. The challenge is to make a quilt that symbolizes this theme and my plan is to show Sunbonnet Sue in a bikini selling sea shells from a grass hut on the beach. I have it all planned out on paper, the patterns drawn, the fabric pulled, seashells acquired, all I need is some neat new thread from aurifil and Ribbon Candy Quilt Company to complete the project!! I am a follower on Facebook already.
