Leap Day Superiority

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone who stopped by. This giveaway is open until Friday, 3/2, at 6 p.m. PST.

Are you excited? It's Leap Day. And it is Superior Threads giveaway day!! This might not happen for another four years so you better take advantage of it today.

Elizabeth and I were co-conspirators for this fabulous giveaway idea. I had been wanting to get the word out about Superior Threads, and it just so happens that Elizabeth is friends with Bob and Heather (also known as Mother Superior--don't you love it?) Purcell, the owners of Superior Threads. So when Elizabeth and I had the chance to meet in person at the Road2California quilt show in January, the plan was hatched. And Bob and Heather agreed to supply the thread.
I have been a fan of Superior Threads for years.While they offer a great variety of thread, in a magnificent variety of colors, I have mostly used Masterpiece for piecing and King Tut for machine quilting. Superior is in the process of changing all their 50 wt. Masterpiece thread from two-ply to three-ply. This is extra long staple Egyptian cotton that my machines love and it creates hardly any lint.

But if 100% cotton isn't what you are looking for, how about polyester, metallic, or silk?

And I'm definitely planning something for my grandchildren using this cool glow-in-the-dark thread!
The other fabulous thing about Superior is that their website is packed with information. Do you have questions about tension? Thread-specific questions? They have that, and lots more, including troubleshooting and lots of reference guides, a Deal of the Day, a Thread of the Month club, and their newsletter, which includes Bob's joke of the month, reason enough to sign up.


But you're really waiting for the giveaway info, right? Including my blog, go check out all these other fabulous quilters, each offering a chance to try some Superior thread.

Elizabeth from Occasional Piece-Quilt!

Lee from Freshly Pieced

Sherri from A Quilting Life

Leanne from She Can Quilt

Thelma from Cupcakes 'n' Daisies

Here at Live a Colorful Life, just leave a comment  for a chance to win.
The giveaway ends at Thursday, March 1, at 6 p.m. PST.  One winner will receive three spools--two Masterpiece and one King Tut.

The other winner will receive two spools--one Masterpiece and one King Tut--along with coordinating fat quarters of fabric.

It's always fun to ask a comment question because I get the most interesting answers. Let's see...

Okay, how about this? Do you know anyone with a birthday today? Or do you have any special plans for Leap Day?

Well, that was certainly clever.

If you want to leap out on a limb and become a follower (or tell me you already are a follower), that would be cool too.

Also, my friend, Deborah (Simply Miss Luella) is having a fun fabric giveaway, so be sure to head over there as well!

Let the LEAPING begin!

  1. Ooh, that glow-in-the-dark thread looks so cool! Can't wait to see how you use it :o)

    Thanks for the chance to win the thread too, I've used the King Tut's thread once for quilting, and have picked up (but not used) another couple of spools, but haven't tried their other threads.

    As for the questions, the only person I know with a birthday today is Angie who blogs over at Summerfield Quilts, who is the grand age of 11 today :oD

  3. I'm a die-hard fan of King Tut and just recently decided I needed to try their solids because I'm having difficulty finding other thread as good! And love those glow-in-the darks - wow!!!!

    My only claim to fame for Leap Day is that rumor has it my mother proposed to my dad on Leap Day!

    I'm one of your faithful followers already!

  4. I thought that maybe I had some Superior Thread, but upon closer examination of my thread box...I guess I don't.

    As far as I know, I don't have any friends with a birthday today. I don't have any specials plans, either...unless you count just wishing I could call in sick.

    ReplyDelete
  5. What a nice giveaway! I love King Tut but have never used Masterpiece. I had a bus driver when I was a kid who had Leap day birthday :-)

    ReplyDelete
  6. My friend Laurie is having her birthday today ~ I think she's technically 12. One thing I want to try this year is new and GOOD thread. Thanks for the chance!

  7. I'm a lame leap day-er! No fun plans and I know no one born on leap day.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I don't know anyone with a birthday today, I will be working (which I am always thankful for my job) and I already follow your fabulous blog. Thanks for having such a great give-a-way.

  9. I've seen the glow in the dark threads around but haven't tried them before.

    On Leap Days I generally take the day off to do fun things I want to do or take a day trip someplace new since it's a 'bonus day'.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Awesome!!! My coworker claims he knows someone who was born on a leap day, but he lies a lot so who knows (lol). My friend had a baby yesterday, though! I plan to work today, then go home and play with my quilty stuff. You know, the usual. :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love that glow in the dark thread! How Fun! For leap day we are leaping over breakfast and having lunch first and then dinner and finally breakfast. Just something to be silly about. In knew a girl in High School whose birthday was today and she got to have a massive party every time her birthday rolled around. I still remember celebrating her 4th (really 16th) birthday with her.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks for the give way...I agree with you on Superiors great web site & newsletter. For my leap day I'm going to work on ufo's

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have not experimented with different types of thread but after reading about these threads, I would like to try.

    ReplyDelete
  14. No specific leap day plans but I sort of feel like we should take the day off and do something fun as it is essential an EXTRA day! It shouldn't count! Have never tried these threads but I'm adding it to the list!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have a cousin with a Leap Day birthday. She's the only cousin whose birthday I can remember! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Cool tread!
    I have a colleague who has her birthday today; only cake every 4th year!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've not tried this thread so would love a chance to, thanks! As for Leap Day plans, I think we are buying a used car...lol.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks for the chance to win. My big plans for today are to finish grouting my newly remodeled bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I could use a thread make-over in my thread box. I do believe my cousin has a daughter with a leap year birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I do know someone that was born on Leap Day! He is a teacher in the schools that my girls attended. He comes from a family of teachers, so I had he dad long ago, my girls had his mom and also him!
    Thanks for a chance to win some Superior threads! I would love to try some.

  21. Thanks for the chance to win the thread - silly as it is I hadn't realised King Tut was a Superior Threads product!! I don't know anyone who was born on 29th Feb but I've just watched 10 couples participate in a mass proposal...I watch too much daytime telly!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, glow-in-the-dark thread is so cool! I sure don't know anyone with a birthday today, though my son almost had his birthday today - my due date with him was Leap Day! Fortunately for me, he was born a little over a week early, so no Leap Day baby!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I do know a lady whose birthday is today. She is over 90, so how old does that make her if she has only had a birthday every 4 years????

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm a follower for a while now. Thanks for the chance to win either one. I'd love it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've got some of the glow in the dark thread and use it in my kids machine embroidered smiley face t shirts...its great in the summer to see the glowing faces..really works well, have bought some of the light sensitive stuff too but not used it yet, thanks for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Superior thread is just that. Love King Tut....love winning some even better.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have one friend who is 40 today, but has only had 10 birthdays.

    Those glow-in-the-dark threads are so cool, I have never seen anything like it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've used King Tut a lot and love it, but never used the Masterpiece. As for a birthday on Leap Day - I have never met anyone with such an auspicious birthday! I wonder how/when they celebrate when it isn't a Leap Year!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I was hoping my friend would have her baby today, but she ended up having it yesterday. I thought it would be cool to be a leap year baby, but I'm happy for her regardless. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't know anyone with a birthday today! I wanted to take my son to the zoo but it's going to rain all day, so I think I will do some crafting instead!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOVE that glow in the dark thread! Thanks for this giveaway, I've been having thread issues lately, would love to try this.

    As far as leap day plans, was awakened at 5:20 this AM to find out its a snow day, 12" of snow. Finally! It is Minnesnowta after all!

  40. Thank you for the chance to be entered in your Superior Thread Leap Day giveaway. The only striking thing about this Leap Day is the spring time weather a month and a half early, sunbeams! Winning the set with the yellow and green scissor fabric would be delightful and match this day perfectly.

    Now I get to go peruse your previous posts. This is such a fun way to meet bloggers and have a morning cuppa. Come on over to my place and say "hi".

  42. You know, I DO know someone with a birthday today. She'll be 2 today...a friend of my youngest son. The thread is beautiful and sounds like it might help ease the way for novice machine quilters.

  52. I used some glow-in-the-dark thread to ply some yarn with for a friend, I love that stuff!
    I don't know anyone with a birthday today, but I'm planning a night of cuddling with my dog and something fiber arts related. I wouldn't call that special, but we get an extra night of it this year!

  56. I don't know anyone's whose birthday is today. My exciting plans for the day are getting the car serviced and attending a ASG meeting.

    As a new quilter, I would love the chance to try another brand of thread.

  57. The glow in the dark thread looks crazy!!! I might need to make another Halloween quilt just so I can use it!

    Today I plan on sewing lots of stuffy owls for a baby shower that is coming up. Nothing really too special today!

    ReplyDelete
  64. That glow-in-the-dark thread will be so fun to play with!

    Would love to win the two spools and fabric.

    No, I don't know anyone with a bday today. Unfortunately, I'm celebrating the extra day by working. What fun is that?

    ReplyDelete
  71. From the reviews I am reading so far, I would love a chance to give this thread a try--coming from someone who only buys the $2.17 a spool from Wal Mart. Don't you think I would love this?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  89. My mother's cousin (my second cousin) that she hung out with growing up was born on Feb 29th. Poppy did not like having such a b'day as felt that it shortchanged her on celebrations. Thanks for the great giveaway and fun. I follow too.

  91. Wow thanks fr the chance, I have never used this thread and would love to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I use Superior threads quite a bit - in fact I need to order some more. Love it for FMQ!
    I've never met anyone whose birthday is on leap day! It would be strange, I think!

    ReplyDelete
  93. It's my goddaughter's 6th (24) birthday today! and my grandfather would have been 32 (or 128!)

    ReplyDelete
  94. That glow in the dark thread is amazing! I have got to get some. My son would go ape for it.

    The only person I know with a birthday today is my brother in law's mother in law.

    ReplyDelete
  95. No plans for leap day. I've started following your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  96. It's my cousin's 4th official birthday today! I remember when she was born, it was so cool! I think it is cool for her now too, but I believe there were a few yonger years where she was upset by it. She still had a birthday party of course, but was told by so many ppl that it wasn't really her birthday...confusing for a little one! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  97. I would love to win any Superior Thread!
    No birthdays but..... Today I must trip to feed store for Rooster kibble. We have several as pets. Ha,ha- don't ask how that happened :)

  98. I'm finishing up some charity quilts and having fun playing with a new design on my wall. I love Superior Threads.....thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Thanks for being a part of this huge Superior Threads giveaway! I have never used those threads, but I do know that I need to learn more about thread and the possibilities there instead of always using my Guttermann cotton.
    I don't have special Leap Year plans; I almost forgot this was Leap Day...Leap Year Day...February 29th...whatever. Maybe I will just stay up late tonight sewing. An extra day in the year means extra sewing time and I shouldn't let it go to waste!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Would love to try this thread. What a great blog.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I don't know anyone with the 29th as their birthday...what are the chances of that? I do love masterpiece thread and King Tut and have a spool of each stashed in my special thread box for the most special projects. It would be great to add more to that box!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I woudl LOVE to try this thread. I don't know anyone with a leapyear birthday. Boo. I always thought it would be fun!

  108. I don't know anyone who has a leap day birthday, and I'm glad I don't. There were a brother and sister on the Today Show this morning that both had leap day birthdays and they WERE NOT the same age! Can you imagine--what are the odds?

    Love the yellow and green... so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  109. The glow in the dark thread looks awesome!
    I don't know anyone with a birthday today but I heard on the radio about a woman who had a baby on 3 consecutive leap years... can you imagine? way too much planning!!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Don't know anyone with a b-day today, and no real plans. Both my kiddos are on the young side and don't have a clue how 'special' today is, but they are both napping right now, so I might get some extra sewing done, LOL. Kimberlee - spunkydiva at live.com

    ReplyDelete
  117. I used to have a co-worker whose birthday was on leap day. And I'm always reminded of the Pirates of Penzance on this day.

    ReplyDelete
  118. What a timely question for me! My mother was born today, and actually, I have a brand new baby cousin who was born today, this exact very morning! He's an extreme preemie, so if you read this, keep him in your prayers!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love those green and yellow prints with the scissors - and great thread to match! I'd love to try the King Tut threads. One day. Thanks for hosting the Giveaway - enjoy!

  120. LOVE Superior Threads! I'd love a chance to win some of that goodness! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Love the threads. Don't know anyone with Feb 29 birthday, but plan to do some sewing to celebrate today.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Because I'm so new to quilting, I didn't really know there was a difference in the thread you use! :/ I'd love a chance to win which ever prize you think I'd enjoy the most to see what different thread is like! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

    By the way, my sister was married on leap year so she's happy to be celebrating her 4th anniversary today (LOL)! :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. The glow-in-the-dark thread is super cool!!

    No I don't know anyone with a birthday today.

    I'm a follower :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. I've never actually known anyone with a birthday today. (Though my husband was born April 1st, which is almost as cool!) I will probably celebrate leap day by working on my current quilt or cutting out some little boy shirt patterns...whichever looks like the most fun when I get off work today. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  125. I most certainly do know a leap day birthday! My cousin, older by one year, was perpetually frustrated by the fact that I was "aging" while he was not. I can't even tell how old he's "supposed" to be, but happy 18th birthday, cuz!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I really wish I didn't have to work today, because Disneyland is open for 24 straight hours and I would love to be there for a marathon session!

  130. Would love to try some of the superior thread! I don't know anyone with a birthday today. And the only weird leap day comment I have is that the weather here in IN is very weird for the end of Feb. 66 degrees and blustery! Feels like spring out there :>)

  131. haha - I know someone that was induced yesterday, probably in hopes that it WOULDN'T be a leap day baby, but I don't think things progressed quickly enough for them to get their wish! LOL! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  137. I don't know anyone with a Feb 29th birthday. I have a friend with a Feb 28th birthday and my daughter was born on the 26th (but neither was born during a Leap Year). I would love to try the Superior thread for piecing. A quilting friend uses it in her long-arm quilting business.

  139. Whoa! Glow in the dark thread...how cool is that!!!

    Yes, my mom's friend OraLee has a leap year birthday. As a child I never understook how someone sooo old could be younger than me!

  141. Hi Leisa - I am leaping with joy to be one of your followers! I am a friend of Elizabeth Eastmonds and found your blog through hers. I have enjoyed reading your blog, and I too collect selvages. I've got mine in an old Exide battery acid glass jar (doesn't sound very nice, but it is) and it looks especially nice with all those beautiful streamers of colors cascading down the sides. Thanks for the opportunity to win some Superior thread, they are my favorites!

  142. I don't know anyone with a birthday today :-( My son has a snow day, so we are having a lazy day today - fun everyonce in awhile (like every four years - ha ha)!

  143. I already use the superior thread and really like it. I have never used King tut would like to try it.

  144. The glow-in-the-dark threads are really cool, what a gadget for children's quilts!

    I know someone having his birthday on Leap Day, he's called Vinced and is 20 (80 today). I've known this sir all my live, he's a friend of my deceased granpa's.

    This is my first Leap Day back at work after my baby break, and it's my first Leap Day as a mom as well.

    Thanks a million for this fantastic giveaway!
    Best wishes!

  145. nope, don't know anyone w a birthday. no plans either except to study for an exam...but my husband always jokes that he should've waited an extra day to ask me out bc then he would only have to worry about remembering our anniversary once every 4 years!

    ReplyDelete
  146. My daughter has a friend who is "4" today. I guess that makes her legal to drive!

    DD made cupcakes to take to school as a surprise--yum! I think I'll need one of the extras for dessert.

  147. I can't believe they have glow in the dark thread. That is so awesome! I have seen the sunburst thread which I wanted to try but now the glow in the dark too. What will they come up with next? :)

    ReplyDelete
  148. Well Cindy you know I'm following diligently, I LOVE quilting with King Tut and on this leap day I am simply putzing around, trying to get motivated to bake and sew in prep for retreat this Saturday and travel next Thursday! Thanks!!

    Glow in the dark thread is the coolest thing I ever saw! Going to have to find some of that.

  153. I don't know anyone with today as a birthday. My plan for the day is to work then go home to finish up the binding on a quilt.

    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway.

  154. Love that glow-in the-dark! Maybe the man in the Bible who went jumping and "leaping" and praising God was a leap year baby! Janice

  162. The glow in the dark thread is so cool! My boys would love it! I'd love to try some King Tut's thread! Thanks for a chance to win your great giveaway!
    I went to high school with a girl whose birthday is today. She is a whole 9 years old today. And my great grandfathers birthday was today. He was 20 (I think) when he died when I was 1. Kinda cool that I know/knew leap year babies! :)

  163. Superior Thread is a really great company with exceptional customer service. I have nothing special planned for today, other than leaping to be a follower to your blog. ;-> Toni Anne

  164. I only know one person born on leap day, and since much of our lives are now managed by computers, she generally lists her birthday as March 1st. None of the big computerized systems (Department of motor vehicles, insurance companies, etc.) can deal with that extra day in February.

    ReplyDelete
  165. My nephews would LOVE that glow in the dark thread! Thanks so much for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  166. A BIG BIG FAN! I regularly speak and teach about Superior Threads! Would LOVE LOVE some more!

  187. I had a day at home with my sewing machine, feel like that only comes round once every 4 years!
    Thanks for the chance x

  188. I don't know anyone with a bithday today.
    I am already a follower via email notification but did just click on the GFC to follow that way as well.

    I used some glow in the dark thread on my Granddaughters' Trick or Treat bag last year. She LOVED it so much she slept with her bag.

    I have seen many posted comments by Bob in the yahoo groups I am in for machine embroidery but still don't recall trying any of their threads. I am still new enough to quilting that I don't have a favorite thread, or much quilting thread at all actually so I'd love to win some to try. I have a 4 pack that I won last year from Aurifil but haven't used it yet because of the colors. I haven't done anything in that color yet to try any of them. It would be fun to see how they compare if I do win.

  189. nope can't say I know anyone born on a leap day, but I do plan on leaping over to my machine and doing a wee bit of sewing this evening.
