AURIfil Designer of the Month

Hi everyone,

AURIfil is sponsoring a Designer of the Month! Below, is the FIRST project for the Designer of the Month for AURIfil Threads! The designer's name is Susan Brubaker Knapp! Susan has a really beautiful project to share with you... here it is!

Click over to Aurifil blog and read the interview with Susan. Download the free project she has designed it to chase away the winter... her January project is darling and a quick one to bring some color into your home!

Also check out Pat Sloan's interview with Susan on May 8, 2010.. scroll down and listen on your computer or download.

Remember if you make the top by the end of the month and load a photo to our Aurifil Flickr group.. you will be in the running to win an Aurifil thread prize.. so worth the fun!

Visit Susan on the internet.. and sign up for her newsletter, blog, facebook, twitter

Come back each month around the same time to see the next Aurifil Thread Designer of the Month! I'll be the designer for JUNE!! Lots of fun...and don't forget that if you make the project and post to the Flicker page, you could win a bigger prize!! [EACH MONTH]

OH and--I'll be giving away a free thread pack, just make a comment and I'll randomly pick a winner, I'll do this each month!! Drawing will be on January 31st. Good Luck!

  12. You are welcome, this post also went to my facebook page, creating the hive, and twitter! Hopefully you'll be getting a ton of response. I also called my local quilt store, who sells Aurifil threads and told them about the Designer of the Month program, hopefully, they will sell more fabric and thread to their customers! Got a book signing from it at the same time! It was fun! good luck in your business! Susan!
