Aurifil Artisan December Showcase

We can hardly believe that 2020 is only a few hours away, and that this is our last Aurifil Artisan Showcase of the year and decade! 😲 We are so inspired so see what gorgeous projects all of our Artisan’s made for their Holiday/Seasonal challenge and hope you find inspiration too!

Click on each Artisan’s name below to read more details about their Holiday project!


Karen O’Connor – I seriously can’t get enough of Elizabeth Hartman’s patterns, and her Penguin Party Pattern specifically this Christmas. I made one more pillow for our niece and she just loved it! I pieced, quilted and assembled the whole thing using my believes 50 weight Aurifil. 💖🧵



Lucy Engels – I wanted to design and make a simple cross stitch design using Aurifloss. Something that could be used as a tree decoration or stitch into a pillow case. I experimented with using the whole thread and also separating to use two strands.


Jessica Anderson – Christmas bicycle embroidered ornament.




Sherry Shish – Trivets with a silicone insert. I used Aurifil 50wt throughout. It sewed through the silicone perfectly and quilted the back too with no thread changes!


Tighe Flanagan – I turned a mini patchwork experiment into a large quilted pillow. Some selfish sewing during the holiday madness.




Lorna Slessor – Mini Christmas gingerbread house block pieced with white 50wt and embroidered with Aurifloss



Leslie Meltzer – Lined drawstring bags are a great way to take your gifts to the next level. Pretty and practical, they are reusable and can be easily customized for the recipient and the size of the gift.



Alison Holt – The seasonal challenge inspired me to make this frosty scene. It has a silk painted base and freehand machine embroidered detailed stitch using straight stitch and zigzag in Aurifil 50wt cotton thread.











We hope you enjoyed seeing all these projects created by our Artisans! You can find even more of their gorgeous projects, patterns, and tutorials on our Aurifil Artisan Pinterest board. ❤
