I am an Artisan that makes leather goods and this is an awesome thread!

I have placed several orders in the last month and with each purchase, the order is processed and shipped super fast! Love the quality and colors available.

Waxed cord from Maine Thread Co. is my favorite thread to use for making pine needle baskets.

Strong, uniform and a wide range of colors and weights. A quality product all the way around. Much appreciated the free sample card, taking the guess work out of color and weight choices.

As always, I'm 100% satisfied with the product and service here.

I'm not a huge customer. Not even a large one. But my order, however small, is handled with the same professionalism as I'm sure the huge orders are.
