Aurifilosophy Lecture & Workshop



In this all day workshop, Annie will give you a slideshow lecture and treat you to the origins of the Aurifil Thread company, based in Italy. You will see how thread is made - featuring the different thread weights that make Aurifil threads so appealing.
Then, you’ll experience the Aurifil thread weights yourself, learning which needle size is right for each weight. This workshop is unlike any that you've taken in the past. Annie will take you through stitching with each thread weight, to create your own resource book of stitch and decorative samples.
Pre-purchase the supply kit $50.00, it will be ready for you at the store on the day of the class.

7 Different Aurifil Threads 
Corresponding needles in correct sizes 
Fabric for stitching samples 
A book, paper and page sleeves 
Other little things you’ll need for the tips and tricks section of the class
