Hi I’m designer and radio show host Pat Sloan here to tell you about Aurifil Thread’s awesome 30th Anniversary! First meet Elena Gregotti the CEO of Aurifil USA and Alex Veronelli the Marketing Manager. these are the two people that lead the company to bring you amazing Aurifil thread! The past few weeks in Houston we had so much fun celebrating their Anniversary. Elena, Alex, myself and Kim Neidzwiecki, the social media manager, all popped in and out of the Aurifil booth at the trade show. And everyone was delighted to finally meet Elly Destro the sales and marketing specialist who works with the quilt shops! The Aurifil team set up a mini golf game.. ‘put put’ for Aurifil thread! It took me some practice.. but I got better! And the games continued all during Festival in Houston with loads of special guests showing up. Here are just a few of the celebrities that played golf for our 30th Anniversary. Hanspeter Ueltschi the president of Bernina (click here for a cool article), Jerry Granata, Marti Mitchell, and Victoria Findlay Wolfe! Click over to the Aurifil Facebook page for tons of fun photos from the 2 weeks in Houston! Every anniversary needs a party! Alex and Elena set up the party at the Four Season’s hotel… many wonderful friends of Aurifil Arrived for the celebration! We certainly love the Electric blue of Moda President Mark Dunn‘s jacket! I was super delighted to introduce my good friends on this special party night! There was amazing food, great wine, two magicians and a lady doing awesome caricatures!

Can a Canadian enter your contest
I love the #2600 light grey, in the large cones, Use it for everything, piecing and quilting.
I just posted one on Flickr / Facebook. Fun!
HI everyone first timer here…love it
I have been teaching with Aurifil for yrs
Call me stupid, but I can’t seem to find the blank pix of Alex where we add our own words to. Or am I just looking too hard? Do we just leave our slogans and then you pair them with a pix?
I had the same problem, so I just selected a pic and left my comment below.
Auriful’s got it all!!!
Any Aurifil is a great Aurifil!
this is cool!
nice slogan! 🙂
that’s clever! 😀
I love Variegated Thread from Aurifil but neutrals are awesome for contrast when quilting
No, not the only one. I never heard of them either.
This one’s great!
I like that one.
Yes, I’d love to hear that too, but the cats don’t have the money to hire a maid. 🙂
