Newsletter: Aurifil Thread at Erie Quilt Art (19 Sep 2017)


We are very pleased to announce that we are now a Canadian distributor for Aurifil        


We are very excited to have this opportunity and we have committed to carrying all Aurifil products - all threads, display units and collections.  As always, it is our goal to provide the best possible service to our customers. We will be stocking a variety of the most popular products and will bring in other products as you request them.  Our first shipment will arrive mid October.

If you are currently purchasing your threads from Carola's Quilt Shop or ByTowne Threads in Canada, we want to be very clear that both Carola and ByTowne will continue to be distributors for Aurifil until December 31, 2017 and we are encouraging you to continue purchasing from them until that time.  We hope you will choose to order from us beginning in January 2018. This change is a result of Aurifil making a decision not to have retailers also being distributors for them.    

It is our goal to work with both Carola and Mari Lyn (ByTowne) to make the transition as smooth as possible for our customers and I have communicated this to them as well.  Should Carola or ByTowne be unable to supply any of the products you are requesting as it becomes closer to the end of December, we will be happy to assist you by supplying those items, however, it is our expectation that if they are able to fill 80% of an order, they will do so and we will supply only the 20% of the order items not available from them.

If you are not currently purchasing Aurifil threads from Carola or ByTowne or are planning to introduce Aurifil threads in your shop, we will be happy to work with you to see what products might be the best fit for you and expect we will have stock by mid October.  We are loading products onto the website now and you will be able to see all products there very soon.
