We’ve all been a bit swept up in anticipation of the celebration and, in tribute, we’re delighted to present a brand new Limited Edition Aurifil House Collection. Aurifil’s The Platinum Jubilee Collection is our humble tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as we celebrate her success and achievements throughout her 70 years of service. Her fierce nature, resilience, and compassion have set a strong example, inspiring a new generation of leaders.

Featuring 10 small spools of Aurifil’s versatile 50wt thread in hues inspired by the House of Windsor, this collection is our new must-have for the Spring season.

We know there are so many ways to get involved — whether it’s something like participating in The Queen’s Green Canopy, hosting a Big Jubilee Lunch, planning your own Jubilee Celebration, or kicking off a Jubilee inspired project, there are so many ways to join in on the fun!

We’ve compiled an inspiring list of fun projects to start now and either see you through the year, or finish up in time for next week’s celebrations.
