I received my order from Maine Thread Co. the other day and have been busy using their products ever since. I am so happy with everything I ordered. I got an assortment of .20 waxed polycords, harness needles, an awl and the 1.0 coffee brown non-waxed polycord. The waxed polycords are beautifully vibrant, move well through the veg tan leather I work with, and definitely enhance my products. The harness needles are so strong, so superior to any needle I've used, no bending or breaking even when I reef on the waxed polycord. In addition, the needles are easy to thread and yet fit the waxed cord nice and snug, making hand sewing more of a joy. The awl is great, and a bargain for the price. I bought the non-waxed polycord to use for adjustable necklace cords, to hold soapstone pendants I shape. This cord is the best I've used for necklaces--doesn't fray even when the cord is adjusted multiple times, is strong but also pliable and looks classy, couldn't ask for better. I should mention the Maine Thread Co.'s customer service was awesome from start to finish, very helpful, friendly and professional. I'm from Canada, and even with the exchange and shipping it was so worth it to order from Maine Thread Company, I'll definitely be back!
