Me: I'm going to be driving to Richmond for a lecture next week.
Me: A quilt shop
Him: What's it about?
Him: Thread? Just thread?
Him: I don't get you
Me: The lecture is being given by the Italian Product Manager
Him: An Italian man?
Him: NOW I'm beginning to get you
Another quilter and I drove a couple hours to a nice quilt shop Quilters Corner to hear
Italians talk with their hands, all of my photos have movement
Mr. Veronelli gave a presentation on the process of producing Aurifil. I have been sewing with Aurifil for awhile and I know it is superior thread to work with, now I understand some of the 'why' it is superior.
Mr. Veronelli discussed the cotton, the twist, the weight, and the dying processes. I gained an appreciation of what goes into the making of a spool of Aurifil thread.
One kilo of thread
Mr. Veronelli had several quilts with him that were made using Aurifil -
including this one by Luke Haynes
Mr. Aurifil was not that bad to look at either, and I never pass on a photo op with an Italian man
A little bit of swag - my favorite piecing color in Aurifil, #2600. I had the color card already, and I had Mr. Aurifil sign it for me
All in all a good quilting related day
Keep Calm and Quilt On!
