How did the idea to develop a line of specialty denim fabrics first come about?
Denim is the quintessential American fabric. It’s an amazing substrate and was long neglected in our industry. At AGF, we always thought that denim had great potential and we wanted to launch a trendy line to be used in garment sewing but at the same time that could be brought into play for quilting. Quilting with denim is very fun!
Tell us a bit about the different types of denim available with this collection.
We have several types, which are different in texture and weight:
SMOOTH SOLIDS are the classic denim that are very thin and have the same weight of quilting fabric.
TEXTURED SOLIDS are thicker and more structured for sturdy projects.
CROSSHATCH TEXTURED DENIM consists of a beautiful woven pattern.
OUTLAND YARN DYES are lightweight with an attractive denim look.
LOVEY DOBBY super soft and great for many projects, especially garments.
PREMIUM LINEN BLEND a blend of linen and cotton with a soft touch.
STREAKED BLEND for unique for out of the box projects.
DENIM PRINTS are the stars of the group. They are super soft and lightweight denim, ideal for sewing and quilting with many creative designs printed on them.
[editor’s note: visit the website for a closer look at all offerings]
What inspired the designs for the denim prints?
We really wanted the quilting community to start creating quilts with denim, so the idea of adding prints came as a no-brainer. Quilters can create a multitude of unique quilts with our variety of prints!
There is often a conception that denim is meant for apparel, but we’ve seen some incredibly inspiring non-apparel projects lately. What are your favorite non-apparel projects with these new fabrics?
Well, we have to admit that we love quilts, bed runners, totes, more totes, clutches and even toys just to name a few!
How were the threads for Ragged, the coordinating thread collection, selected?
We love the quality of Aurifil threads and they come in several materials and weights to help create many different techniques when sewn on denim. The colors coordinate perfectly and that makes them ideal for sewing and quilting with our types of denim.
The collection includes a wonderful variety of thread weights, including 40wt, 28wt, 12wt, Linen and Wool. What tips would you share with consumers for how to use the various weights in their projects?
There are not many tips we can recommend since Aurifil threads have the best quality, so you can use them at will!! They resist breakage extremely well, so they can be used in bobbin work, hand embroidery and stitching, high-speed machine quilting, topstitching, hand quilting, and sashiko as well. Imagine the possibilities!
What do you love most about Aurifil threads and how it partners with your fabrics?
We are incredibly honored to be partners with Aurifil! We share the same values and quality products are at the top of our lists. The color range is unbelievable and they come in every weight you can ask for. We love the luster and sheen of each of the cotton spools and how delicate the wool threads are. We even love how they barely produce lint which means that we have less lint to clean in our sewing machine hooks! What else can anyone ask for? Aurifil threads are perfection!
