Through my collaboration as hosted author for Arte Morbida, I’d like to bring young people closer to the fantastic world of Textiles, in all its forms and most interesting declinations, commercial and not.

I will have the pleasure to open a window on a series of topics that intrigue me, to talk about creativity and show you how the top quality Made in Italy thread industry keeps up with new market trends and needs.

Join me in my trip through the soft waves designed by needle and thread!

MILANO ITALY, January 22, 2019 – – Aurifil Thread announces their partnership with the
Plastic Bank, a social enterprise headquartered in Canada which aims to clean up plastic

Aurifil is known as the top manufacturer of 100% Cotton Thread worldwide. Quilters,
sewists, and crafters use millions of yards of thread every year to create quilts, garments,
