Aurifil Thread Lab Subscription Program



Introducing Thread Labs, Aurifil’s 2023 subscription series curated in celebration of our 40th Anniversary. Thread Labs is a six part series that tells the story of Aurifil– from our history and unique production process to an in-depth education on our revered threads. It was developed as a no-fuss program for you, our valued retailer, in reaction to the increased consumer demand for education and is aimed at generating new revenue, securing brand loyalty, and strengthening customer relationships. From July through December, your customers will gain the necessary tools to more confidently create with a variety of thread weights and techniques. They will finish the year inspired, armed with new skills and a wealth of knowledge.

The subscription is a must-have for both the Aurifil enthusiast and novice. Each lab presents a project designed to educate and inspire via a featured thread weight. A secure online portal plays host to exclusive content including downloadable project PDFs, educator interviews, thread tutorials, and more. Month one provides early access to our newfangled swatch book, an exploratory Aurifilosophy session with Aurifil’s Master Educator, Karen L. Miller, as well as other essentials.
