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.

    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.

    I Had my first experience with Valdani thread when I did the Moon flower BOM. I have loved using that thread and have already accumulated 67 balls of thread. Most of mine are size 12 and 8 and I need to try out the 5 size.
