  1. I start looking for Christmas sewing projects around September. However, I probably won’t start sewing them till the end of November.

  2. I started in January this year and did a little each month. Now I’m organised and there will be no last minute rush to get done in time. I’ve even started in on a couple of larger projects that I had planned on doing for next year .

  3. Heard a lot abt aurifil, but never used, as its not available in india, jan is a good month to begin something as we get a month off from work.

  4. I usually start my projects in mid-late November, but really ramp up in mid-December. thanks so much for sharing

  5. Projects which are intended for gifts get started all year round, but holiday projects which are decor for my house generally happen in December.

  6. Love Aurifil thread! I am currently using 12 weight thread instead of floss to do an embroidery project (in multicolour instead of red work). I’m having sew much fun! Thanks for the chance to win. ^_^

  7. Aurafill is my favorite thread! I use nothing but the 44w on all my quilts and I would love a chance to try the others.

  8. I try to start in the summer but I really get going in October. I spent all day on Thanksgiving on a project and have it almost completed. 🙂

  9. Sometime in November i start seeing loads of great sewing ideas for Christmas. That inspires me to get at it, although I am usually still furiously finishing off at the last minute still.

  10. I do some right after the holidays, and then usually early November I realize I don’t have much time left to get thlings done, and start sewing like crazy.

  11. I start my holiday projects usually Mid-November. Probably later than I should but I’m typically doing Halloween and Thanksgiving projects right up to the wire, as well!


  12. I procrastinate so I am a late starter. I am just now looking for projects to make and I have a whole quilt to have quilted in less than 20 days. Time to work!

  13. I am not starting any Christmas projects this year. We just had my son’s wedding, and I am giving myself a pass this year.

  14. I try to work on things throughout the year but always get stuck with too much to do at the last minute!

  15. The earlier the better!! This year I spent November getting all my new / birthday club stuff for December done so I can see the whole month guilt free

  16. I start Christmas sewing when I am inspired by a project. Sometimes the gift does not make it to Christmas as I love gift giving and will give the intended a “happy!” before the holiday.

  17. I try to begin my holiday projects in January but of course, that doesn’t always work! I’m still working on some things for this year!

  18. This is my wish for Christmas…..some spools of Aurifil thread !! Have read so much and really need to find where to get it or just order on line………

  20. I usually buy the fabric in July/August and start the projects in October (On my quilters’ getaway weekend)

  22. Sometimes before Thanksgiving, but usually after and the madly try to get the done in time for Christmas.

  23. I usually start my holiday projects today! (The day after Thanksgiving.) I just can’t get in the mood before then. I do start planning what I want to make in early November so I have an idea of what supplies I will need, though.

  24. The other thread companies could learn a LOT from Aurifil…. not only do you make the best quality thread, but you also SINCERELY care about the quilting/sewing community! You are always so quick to give back. On this Thanksgiving – we are all thankful for YOU! 🙂

  25. I start when the motivations hits me. I decide which project I have made during the year go to someone and then I hurry to make more all in the last month.

  26. I started my Christmas sewing 1 week before Thanksgiving with a tree skirt that I “owed” my daughter to match her stockings from 3 years ago, of course quilted and pieced with Aurifil Mako 50

  27. Usually by mid-summer I have made at least ONE Christmas gift. This year, I had quite a bit of crafty gifts made by mid-Oct.

  28. I really have no “starting” or “finishing” time line for holiday projects. I sew all year long, save them up, then add names and distribute them near Christmas. If I don’t have enough hand made items, I go shopping, trying to make sure different people receive my hand made items each year.

  29. I usually start a couple weeks before Christmas, get stressed out and end up not finishing anything! 😀

  30. If planning my projects counts as starting, I am always working on them! I haven’t started sewing for this year yet, but I hope to start this weekend!

  34. I started my projects in July, and I still have a few too go. I have a beautiful dress I made for my friend that I just need to alter the straps and hem it! I love your thread!

  35. What do you mean start? I feel like I never stop. Sewing gifts, and if I can making stuff for my house never stops.

  36. I start my holiday projects early in the year. If I don’t, it just doesn’t happen! I don’t like the pressure of sewing under a deadline – enough of that at work!

  37. I started in July this year. It differs each year depending on what I am making and who I am making it for and how involved the projects are going to be time wise.

  38. would love to win some thread. I work on holiday projects all year long but get really serious about this time of year.

  39. I usually start my holiday sewing projects in July! There area so many great Christmas in July demos that they get me inspired to start….usually finish down to the wire in December ;o)

  40. I start holiday projects in September, and sometimes I don’t think that’s early enough! Depends on when seasonal fabrics become available.

  41. love Aurifil + sew does my machine! & love a chance to win, thank you. I made 10 cosmetic bags, starting in July.

  43. I usually start in the summer but this year was busy packing and preparing to move so no homemade gifts. My sewing room is almost set up to get back into the sewing grove!

  44. I try not to add too much pressure to myself. I choose one or two people to receive hand crafted gifts and start when I start. No stress no worries.

  45. Making holiday gifts is way too stressful for me. I make things all year long, and don’t typically get over anxious about making presents for friends or family.

  46. I made a Christmas quilt in January. Hoping to get it quilted in Dec. Started some other projects this month(Nov.) and have a few more lined up.

  47. I just started my Christmas sewing on Wednesday 😉 But I use my Aurifil all year long! Best thread ever! I don’t sew/quilt with anything else <3

  48. I’m a late starter! Work best under pressure. Started my Christmas sewing projects early in November…..good thing I’m a night owl!!

  49. When I find a perfect gift for someone, I usually start on it right away and cross the person’s name off the list and itemize what their gift(s) is.

  50. Huge fan of Aurifil–thanks for the giveaway! If I’m making quilted gifts, I will generally make them through the year and put them away for the holidays. However, I also usually get some last minute inspiration and am in a countdown to get it done!

  51. I wish I was more organized. I did drop a quilt with a quilter in October. I’m sewing this weekend on some projects for friends. Happy holidays.

  52. I start thinking about it as the Christmas photos start appearing – but don’t really get down to business until December. I need the pressure!

  54. Christmas giftmaking seems to start later each year as I am very indecisive about what I actually want to make!

  55. I usually start sewing in July and it gets crazier the closer to Christmas it gets! I’m sewing this weekend and avoiding the stores so this give-a-way is perfect!

  56. I try to start projects as soon as I can or at least no later than November. I pretty much work through the year with other gifts as well as soon as I learn how to make something! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  57. Sometimes I start a year in advance. If I need several quilts done I will try to spread them out so I don’t get stressed.

  58. I keep a diary of all the sewing projects I would like to achieve, and every new year I write down my plans and ideas. It works really well apart from the odd surprise ‘gift’….. 🙂 <3

  59. I always wait until the last minute possible! Somehow I manage to get it done, though I don’t know how. Every year I swear it’s not going to happen again but it seems I’m a creature of habit! Thank you for the chance to win all the weights if thread. I’ve been wanting to see the difference and this is a great opportunity. Love all the spool colors too! 🙂

  60. I pick out fabric and patterns about October, but procrastinate until the end of November when the pressure starts! I seem to work better then.

  61. I stockpile patterns, ideas, and fabric all year long. I’ll work on them whenever I want a break from the project of the week. Thanks for a chance to win!

  62. I usually start the first week in December. Always too late. Always with too much “want-to-dos”. Will I ever learn? Nope. Probably not! LOL.

  63. At least I completed the Christmas cards before November. They each have a machine embroidery bookmark. Now to address all 25 of them!

  64. I have never used Aurifil thread, but have heard great things about it. I would love to win so that I can try it. Thanks for the chance. MK

  65. I usually work on projects year round, but always find myself working last minute gifts about a week or two before Christmas.

  66. It depends. Often sewing projects are started very early in the year, when I hear a hint that a friend or family member would love something particular.

  76. Lordy, I don’t even know if I did the helicopter thingy correct or not!! But, I am here!!! My fav time to work on Christmas is in January…its the time I adore working with reds, and then whatever I work on in November and December is truly spur of the moment and just because it really was too cute not to make!

  79. I don’t usually do holiday sewing, but I sew sometimes for my daughters birthday’s which are in November and January. I usually start that sewing at the beginning of November.

  80. I started this summer-made a large rag quilt for my grandson. I’m a beginner so I’m not very fast! So I knew it would take awhile to get it finished in time. Now I am working on some placemats and hope they will be done by Christmas!

  81. I was a bit late this year in starting my holiday projects, but at least I got going mid-November making a Christmas tree skirt for my son. All I need to do is hand-stitch some beads (to look like berries) and it’s done!

  85. I try to start my Christmas sewing by November. I did start then this year. I try to gather ideas all year and make a plan for what I hope to make for gifts.

  87. I started back in October but finished one Christmas runner and stopped. Started again two weeks ago and now the rush is on.

  88. Ideally I should start my projects in July, particularly the ambitious ones but often I’m finishing them the night before I plan on gifting them!

  89. It completely depends on the year. Last year I didn’t do any Christmas sewing, this year I started sewing in August. But I really get going around the first of November.

  91. I confess To planning in September, starting in December and generally gifting on the persons next Birthday!

  111. Late summer, such as August is when I begin my holiday sewing projects.
