Friday Quilting Giveaway: Valdani Thread Box!

Quilting Giveaway: Valdani Thread Box giveaway featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean


It’s Friday…why not celebrate…just a little…at least!

When was in Houston I talked Dana, from Valdani to let me give-away a #5 wt thread pack… since we just ordered a sick amount of balls from her recently!

And early this week we got in a HUGE order at the warehouse… so we are busily putting away all those balls and boxes and if you have not used the 5wt Valdani thread yet… you will if you are doing anything Primitive Gatherings…. I just LOVE using them for my embroidery stitching… They make the stitches look so gooooood!

    I don’t have a lot of Valdani threads, but once when doing a specific project where I needed one color throughout, I ordered 6 of the gold/yellow (don’t remember the number). I have close to 20 balls of Valdani thread and it is one of my ‘go-to’ threads for surface embroidery.

  14. Donna Schalge Avatar

    I think I probably have over 200, of mostly 12 weight, but many 8 weight also. I have about 20 of the 3strand thread also. I carry your Valdani thread book in my purse just in case I find a color I don’t yet have in my collection. I just found my first #5 ball a few months ago.

    What a lovely treat it would be to have more of the #5 threads! I too discovered how much better my stem stitching looks with the heavier threads. Plus I invested in your stitching book so now my stitches look more like they are supposed to. I did have your book spiral bound so I can avoid destroying the binding .
    I have the thread kit from the primitive garden bomb, plus 2 more of your boxs full of more!

    I have around 50-60 balls of Valdani threads from over the years – and I can proudly say that I have even seen the end of some of them (as in I have used up entire balls!) I did two of your early-designed large quilt projects – Primitive Garden and the one that followed … I am currently working to finish Moon Garden while also working on a couple of small bowl fillers (I have ADD! Ha!) I am on the last block of Moon Garden and doing the setting squares in the sashes! Yay! Even though wool can sometimes make me sneeze – I can’t stop working with it 🙂
