Top Ten Tuesday {Tips & Tricks}

Disclaimer! I am NOT a thread snob! I use up whatever I have. If you have followed along in the moving to Hawaii journey, you recall I have been stash busting for a while…and that includes thread.
For the most part, it has worked fine. And it feels good to use up stuff.
I was gifted a spool of Aurifil and I tried it out yesterday on a new project (more on that later – Promise!!) and I must admit that my Viking Sapphire seems very happy with it.
Here is the Aurifil blog of Tuesday Tips that I think you will enjoy.
Let me know what thread your machine loves (you know, the machine almost always has the say in this regard, right?!)
Aloha!
