Thread Count

Speaking about thread – here’s my thread stand.  It’s almost full.  As I’ve blogged about in the past, I am part of an Aurifil Thread Club with The Quilt Bear.  Every month they send me 2 spools of thread for just under $22 (that includes S&H and tax so it’s a deal!).  Last year, the club sent a color and a background color.  But I was building my thread selection so I requested two colors be sent each month.  I get my backgrounds when I shop at quilt shops.  This year, they changed it up and the club sends a color and a variegated thread in the same color line.  So, I could get a solid green and then a variegated green in a month.  I love it!  It has been a great way to build my thread collection without going through the headache of trying to figure out which one I want.  If it was up to me – I would never get around to buying thread and I would end up using the same gray, cream, white thread on all my quilting.  But, as you can see, my thread stand is almost full.  When it is full, I will have to stop my membership with the thread club.  Right now, I’ve got 6 empty spots.  That is three months.  If I do not use up more spools in the next three months – my thread club will be gone.  I am not planning on having more thread than what my stand can hold.  So I have to get cracking and use up some of those spools!  The background thread is easy to use up and it looks like one of the grays will be done pretty quickly. There is a dark blue spool that is half way done too but I’m not planning on using it anytime soon for any project.  Oh well – if I stop the thread club, I may look into a fabric club. 🙂

Happy Quilting!
