We’re back for week 2 of our Aurifil for AGF blog series! This week, we’ll introduce you to a few more of the talented designers of Art Gallery Fabrics. Back in 2015, we launched Aurifil thread boxes to match with the identity of each Art Gallery Fabrics designer. The best thing about this is that the threads aren’t specific to one fabric collection but rather were selected to match a designer’s signature palette. With that in mind, these collections work just as well with the brand new fabric collections as they did with those that released back in 2015. Pretty amazing, right? We hope you enjoy hearing more about these fabulous women AND don’t miss our super sweet giveaway!
Today, we meet Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline! Her Sweet Pea collection comes in a Large box of 40wt thread and a small box of 50wt thread, both for use in so many of Caroline’s apparel and home decor projects and patterns. The colors were perfectly selected to coordinate with Caroline’s Art Gallery Fabrics collections, including her newly released Here Comes the Sun collection, Chalk and Paint, Happy Home, and Gleeful. Caroline’s Instagram feed is a burst of color and inspiration, featuring everything from charming bits of home décor to a sweet variety of maternity and children’s clothing. Caroline’s wardrobe is completely covetable and she works hard to share her tips and tutorials for how to do it yourself on her blog, Sew Caroline.
