IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
Anniversary Celebration
Day 15 Giveaway #2

by

You won't need an afternoon cup of coffee or a sugar hit today.  This giveaway should provide enough adrenaline to keep you up until midnight.  Your eyes are not failing you...it is true....Aurifil Threads is giving one very dog gone lucky IHAN reader the Mark Lapinski's Intermediate Aurifil Thread Collection.  Twelve great colors of 28 weight cotton thread 820 yards of thread. 


 
I thought that was the response I would get!!!  I promise I did not open any of the threads although they may have been fondled....the wrapper is still on all the spools :)  I don't know how much longer I can be trusted though.

When I was a teenager I actually had a dream about finding the make up displays from the big department stores and no one wanted them.  (Teenage Heaven)  Now, I dream I come upon those incredible Aurifil Displays and those handsome Italian guys are away from their booth...(in my dream, I also have a dolly and a getaway vehicle).
Can you imagine?  This must be Thread Heaven....all the colors....when ever you need one....just reach over and grab a spool.  One for you sewing machine, a few for your embroidery machine (MJE, Diane, Dale, Joanne, Darlene), three or four for your serger and then some for your mid or long arm machine.  See what I mean....we need all this thread:)  Of course there is plenty for hand applique, redwork, making lace and plenty for eye candy in your sewing room!!
