I only buy Maine Thread for all my projects.

Thomas Watkins
Braided Thread

Used this thread on about half dozen hand sewed projects thus far. I,ve been using maine thread for a number of years (5) and this new thread is great. I am planning to use my existing stock twisted thread up an begain to use the braided thread exclusively unless my customers request other wise.This new thread sews beautifully and is a noticeable difference.Eagerly awaiting new colors.
