Beginning Mid January 2021
The 2021 Color Builder Subscription is a capsule of 12 mini-collections, each containing three large spools of 40wt thread -- a warm, a medium, and a dark.
Over the course of the year, you will not only learn all about the amazing things that can be done with Aurifil 40wt but you will also:
For best results when using 40wt thread by machine, we recommend using Aurifil 50wt in the bobbin. It’s the perfect thread partner but is also incredibly economical as more thread will fit on the bobbin. Longarmers should use 40wt in the bobbin and go a little slower than normal when quilting, particularly when creating curves.
It is best to use an 80/12 or 90/14 Topstitch, Quilting, or Denim needle when using this thread by machine. We recommend a 3.0 needle size or larger for longarm quilters. Our test groups have found that using an MR (multidirectional) needle helps to reduce breakage when using 2ply threads on the longarm.
