A Perfect Match

Thread. Everybody who sews uses it but not everyone knows the difference between the good stuff and the BEST stuff. When you sew everyday like I do, it's imperative to use the best, so I have become a big Aurifil fan. I mean, just check out how pretty those little spools are just sitting there!
Into the Woods & matching Aurifil
You may have heard other designers rave Aurifil thread and I'm here to confirm it is for good reason. First of all, these fabulous little spools are 100% Egyptian cotton (long staple) and come in multiple weights. I prefer the 50 weight pretty much all the time as it is great for everything--piecing, quilting, hand-binding, etc.
One of the first things I did when I got my Into the Woods strikeoffs was look through my Aurifil color card to find the perfect coordinating colors for all my bazillions of projects I knew I would be making. (I used every single color in the Cottage Canopy for all that top-stitching!)
So here are the coordinating colors that you are going to want to stock up on for your Into the Woods sewing projects (as seen above):
  • 2021 (white)
  • 2415 (pink)
  • 2360 (brown)
  • 2835 (mint)
I hope that helps! Feel free to leave any questions in the comments. 
Oh and don't forget about the 30% discount in my shop using promo code PIONEERBABY any time in July!
