Waxed cord
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.

Maine Thread for Crafts
I am a professional basketmaker, and I am delighted with the quality of Maine Thread for small baskets. I decorate with beads and it is easy to slip the beads on the .035-sized thread. Their product is also much cheaper than any other that I've found.

Great stuff. I think it could use a bit more wax to be perfect.

Very good product
I placed my order on Thursday and it arrived on The following Tuesday, which I feel was a little slow, since they are only 2 hours away from me. I use the thread for leatherwork (motorcycle seat) and it is perfect for this. The thread is a uniform color and thickness, so it looks very nice when hand stitched. It is lightly waxed, so it slides through the leather, without leaving a build up from pulling through the small holes. On longer seams I had to rewax the ends to keep them from unravelling but this is normal and I'm ok with it. The thread did not fray or get fuzzy during the sewing process and looked very nice when I was finished. It seems to be a good qualty product that is reasonably priced. This was my first time ordering from or using Maine Thread products and I will order from them again. If you do quality work and need a product that will produce a finished item that reflects that, this thread will work for you.

great thread
I weave pine needle baskets and had been using Crawford waxed Irish linen for years but its very expensive! I discovered Maine Thread is just as good and less than half the price. I love that I can get it in different thicknesses....I use the .20 for very fine work and I recommend it to all my students and friends. Would love to see more colors soon.

As always, a 10 !!
I would, however, like to see a bit more wax on the thread. My Bark Tan had the amount I like. I'm sure some would not be happy with that, but that's just me. lol. I can always add wax too. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful waxed cord
I found you by accident and am so glad I did: your waxed cords are beautiful and work extremely well for the fish, owl and cat pillows I make. The black cord is perfect for cat whiskers and the colors are great for decorations and making sure things--buttons, etc.--stay put. I have almost every color now and will keep ordering as I need to. Your deliveries are so prompt, too. Thank you!

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.
