The Splendid Sampler II™ Sew-along – Alex Veronelli

Alex has been at Aurifil, the Italian quilt, patchwork & embroidery cotton threads manufacturer for 28 years. He travels throughout Europe and North America spreading the love of Aurifil. His job is to keep you up to date in Aurifil trends and products as well as news from International Quilt Shows and Shops.

We love seeing Alex at quilt market and today’s block is all about international quilt market, the rows of booths that line the aisles and the streams of people that fill those aisles.

For some great deals on Aurifil 50wt threads shop here.

Grab a cone or two of your favorite neutral thread colour. I always have an assortment of greys, white, and cream on hand.

This is the best thread holder to hold spools of Aurifil thread. Sturdy and adjustable for every size of spool. Buy here.
