Perfect for what I needed! Shipped and arrived super quickly. I used it on a wedding invitation to wrap around and it was perfect. The value and quality are very high. Will definitely work with you again! Thanks.

A friend told me about Maine waxed cord and I'm thrilled he did. It's the only cord I'll use with my leather products now. It holds fast, comes in gorgeous colors, and grips tightly to itself at the end of the stitch. The variety of weights is helpful with my products as I make a range of sizes from credit card sleeves to satchels. I HIGHLY recommend this cord.
We only use Maine Thread and are never disappointed. We've never had an issue with ordering or shipping, and we have never had an issue with our ordered products. We use .040 thread and it's quite strong. We couldn't be happier with this company.

very happy with my order and the price was right and fast shipping and it was just what I needed. very good place to order your waxed thread and cord from . I'm a happy camper
I bought this chord in three strand and a pack of needles as well as three othe colors.
I stitched some thick toled hides together for artwork and the cord was fantastic. Great wax, wonderful working material, knotted well and was is very strong. Will continue buying from Main Thread Company because of the great help, even during holidays someone e-mailed me for the correct needle sizes after working hours so I could order on-line correctly. Love the colors, expert help and variety of sizes.

Great variety in size and color, Ordered 4 colors in .35" and later found some .45 in my local leather store in Seattle. Got an e-mail after the store was closed for the holidays so I could order the correct needles for the size of cord I ordered. Great wax, very workable, consistent and looks good in thick tooled veg tan hides I use for artwork - both flat and three dimensional pieces. Will continue to order more colors and cord sizes. Best material and best service. Loyal customer after just one purchase.
