Last week, Aurifil announced their 2019 Aurifil Artisans, and I am thrilled that they are welcoming me back for another (third!) year. With over 250 applications this year, I don’t envy the hard work they had to do to select the Artisans this year. It’s an amazingly talented bunch, and it is an honor to be a part of the group. You know that my machines and I love Aurifil, and I am grateful for their amazing support of the quilting community. It’s a great match!
So what does being an Artisan mean? Well, it means that I am going to use their thread and talk about it. Since that’s what I would do anyway, you won’t really notice a change at all. There are no affiliate links that go along with it, just my honest feedback and opinion that I really enjoy Aurifil thread and the Aurifil company and staff.
Another reason that I am thrilled to partner with Aurifil is their commitment to sustainability. They have partnered with The Plastic Bank, a social enterprise headquartered in Canada which aims to clean up plastic waste from our oceans while providing valuable opportunities for people living in poverty. With The Plastic Bank, Aurifil has taken steps to be plastic neutral in 2019. You can read more about Aurifil’s efforts to Make an Impact on their AURIbuzz blog.
