Sponsor Spotlight – The Quilt Bear

I’m so excited to announce a new sponsor for the podcast and blog. Drumroll please…..

I’ve talked about purchasing Aurifil thread from The Quilt Bear many times on both the blog and the podcast. I contacted Mary Jo and she was thrilled to become a new sponsor!

Why is The Quilt Bear so awesome?

She offers the entire lineup of Aurifil threads. If you don’t see it listed on her site just e-mail her to request your color and weight and she can get it from the distributor same day or next day usually. The shop is really close to an Aurifil distributor so it makes delivery fast! Having an Aurifil thread card handy makes color choice easy for your projects so I also recommend one of those.

Buy three spools of Aurifil get one free!

They even track your purchases so if you don’t want to purchase three spools in one order they accumulate over time and The Quilt Bear will let you know when you’ve earned a free spool!  

Free shipping with every order for US Domestic customers! This is huge for me because sometime shipping cost can kill the deal you thought you were getting. She offers shipping for Canadian and international customers too so if you’re overseas don’t fret!

Monthly drawing for a $10 gift certificate for anyone that places an order over $40. You get entered into the drawing each month you make a purchase that qualifies!

Special coupon code for my blog readers and podcast listeners: enter the code PODCAST when you check out and save 10% on every order!

The Quilt Bear will be sponsoring several Aurifil giveaways on my blog so keep an eye out for those! The first one will start later today.

Some products Mary Jo recommends:

The Schmetz Quilting Needle Gift Tin

The Schmetz Quilting Needle Gift Tin $24.95 – Included in box: Needles – Quilting size 75/11, Quilting size 90/14, Microtex size 70/10 and Topstitch size 90/14. Also included – sample spool Sulky Polylite thread and Schmetz ABC Pocket Guide to needles in reusable hinged tin.

The Fabulous Fabric Glide for Free Motion Quilting

The Fabulous Fabric Glide – A set of two sizes of semi-hoops that control the fabric during free-motion quilting on a standard home sewing machine. Easy to use and extremely light weight. Relaxed hand positioning prevents hand, wrist and shoulder fatigue normally experienced when attempting to control the fabric. See the video of the Fabric Glide in action!

A big welcome to Mary Jo and The Quilt Bear as a new sponsor!


  1. Katie, I’m so glad you had the feature, I just ordered some thread and fabrics from her 🙂 I could even get the 10% off with the coupon code and the free shipping is just brilliant. Is with you it kills the deal for me too!
