My Little Trip... Part IV
Our AURIFIL collection

Our brand new "AURIKIT"!

SomersetswatchesblogFresh Figs

We are so happy to announce that we have partnered with AURIFIL threads to bring you some amazing Fig Tree goodies!

Today I wanted to share with you a little bit about the "AURIKIT" we have [ tomorrow I will tell you a bit more about the large FIG TREE THREAD COLLECTION too] designed with the amazing folks over at Aurifil and MODA!

Thank you so much Alex, Kim and Lissa!

I think this all started two markets ago and it just took a bit of time to get all the logistics worked out. The little "Aurikit" box contains (7) threads of AURIFIL thread, a 2 1/2" mini charm of Somerset fabric and a free pattern that you see pictured on the cover of the box. The threads all match the main colors in the Somerset collection of course [both the kit and the Somerset fabrics are due out in stores in September, '14].

It really is a box full of lovely goodness all in one place!



The goodies inside the box...











Well as soon as we finished working on the box, the threads and the pattern, I dreamt up a little contest for you all!  I thought it would be a fun opportunity to do a special promotion and seemed like a perfect time to do a design contest so that all of you could join in the fun!

Love this kit! Ordering mine today.

Love the kit and of course the contest is something to seriously consider. :-)

Sounds like fun! I've been looking forward this this kit and the Somerset fabrics since I'd seen videos of them from Quilt Market! :-)

A new challenge opens new avenues of creativity. Thank you for the inspiration!


Loooove the new line already :-)


I want to see you enter something for sure!

thanks so much Sharon. I am so glad that you are excited about it too!

So glad. Hope you enter the contest!

My order is placed! I think I already have an idea for a mini charm pattern - I've never tried something completely from scratch though. I can't wait to see Somerset in person - I scored a few precuts from an early-bird seller on eBay this past week and can't wait to get it tomorrow!

So glad that you are joining us for this little adventure. I cant wait to see what you come up with!!

How fun! I can't wait to get started.

Order is placed! So exciting!

So glad you are excited. We absolutely love, love these threads and the set!

Happy sewing,
