Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 12wt Thread is wound on a red spool. It is the heaviest weight thread that we offer and is perfect for hand applique, hand embroidery, hand quilting, cross stitch, embellishment, handmade lace, machine applique, blanket stitch, machine embroidery (especially for designs that use a longer stitch length), machine art quilting, Sashiko, redwork, lower looper serging, and longarm quilting.

Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 28wt Thread is wound on a grey spool. It is the second heaviest weight thread that we offer and is perfect for double strand cross stitch, blanket stitch, hand applique, hand piecing, hand quilting, bobbin and machine lace, machine quilting, longarm quilting, machine embroidery and lower looper serging.

Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 40wt Thread is wound on a green spool. Because of its slightly thicker weight, it is perfect for use with sewing bags, toys or dolls, garments, or when a more defined topstitching or quilting pattern is desired. It is also terrific for Single, Double or Triple Strand Cross Stitch, Hand Piecing, Bobbin and Machine Lace, Machine Applique, Machine Embroidery, Edge-to-Edge, Pantographs, and Custom Longarm Quilting.


Aurifil’s 50wt Thread is our most versatile and most popular Cotton thread, and is wound on our iconic orange spool. The 50wt is strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams. While it is wonderful for piecing, subtle quilting & topstitching, and English Paper Piecing it also works incredibly well for Needle Turn Applique, Bobbin and Machine Lace, Machine Applique (Straight Stitch, ZigZag, Blind Hem and Blanket Stitch,) Machine Embroidery, Dense Machine Quilting, Subtle Machine and Longarm Quilting, Basting, Whole Cloth and Micro Quilting, and Dense Background Designs.


Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 80wt Thread is one of the newest members of the Aurifil family. Introduced in 2016, it is available in 88 vibrant, luxurious colors showcased on beautiful cherry wooden spools. Such a thin thread is perfect for a variety of techniques, including English Paper Piecing, Hand Applique, Machine Embroidery, Machine Applique, Free Motion Quilting, Free Motion Couching, and more
.

The newest of Aurifil’s Cotton Threads, Forty3 was introduced in Fall of 2017. It is a 40wt, 3ply thread made specifically to handle the rigor of today’s high-speed, high-tech Longarm machines. It has all the versatility and lustrous color of the original 40wt, with the added benefit of extra strength. It is currently available in 50 of our Cotton colors. This thread is perfect for longarm quilting, but is also a star for garment sewing, bag-making, domestic machine sewing, and more.

Aurifil’s 6-strand 100% Cotton Floss is wound on a gorgeous wooden spool, perfect for easy travel and the prevention of pesky tangles! It is available in all 270 of our Cotton colors and boasts 18 yards per spool. We find Aurifloss to be excellent for Cross Stitch, Huck Embroidery, Miniature Punch-Needle Embroidery, Tatting, Needle Point, Crochet, Applique, Big Stitch Quilting, Accent stitching on garments and other items, and hand embroidery.

I ordered online from Mended Hearts Quilting and Boutique because they had a beautiful piece of fabric I hadn’t found elsewhere. The price was excellent and I received my purchase VERY quickly. I couldn’t believe how fast it got from Iowa to Florida! It was packed with obvious care and included a personal message. I am very impressed with Mended Heart’s selection, online shopping experience, service and communication and will definitely shop there again.

I placed an online order. Upon order fulfillment, they discovered the image attached to that item was not the same product and called me to verify which I wanted. As it turned out they didn't have the product I thought I was ordering, but were kind enough to find and send photos of alternatives for me to select from. Quick shipping and excellent customer service/attention to detail! I would definitely order with confidence from this shop again!

I recently ordered my Janome 100th Anniversary fabric from Mended Hearts. I chose them over other stores that popped up when I google searched the fabric because I love their mission. As a Labor & Delivery nurse I see newborns with cardiac issues and have to help their Mom’s with a baby in the NICU. My firstborn was in the NICU for 11 weeks as he was a 29 weeks preemie...38 years ago! I am very blessed that he never really had any issues except growing. I think Mended Hearts has a wonderful mission and I will certainly buy from them again. I received my fabric nicely packaged with a very nice personal thank you note! Great Business!
