Another use for Waxed Cord
I'm the president of a local softball association and we needed some waterproof cord we could use to help us chalk a straight line for the outfield foul lines. This bright yellow waxed cord did the the trick and we've been using the same spool for years!

Great Product
Great quality thread and super fast shipping! Thread used in my leather goods shop for hand stitching and it is an awesome thread to work with!

Customer Service
Earlier this month I placed an order for 40 spools of yellow waxed cord not realizing there was a huge discount if I had ordered 50. I would like to personally thank one of your employees, Stephanie Parker, for bringing this to my attention. Her thoughtfulness and desire to give customers the best deal your company has to offer is a rare and highly commendable attribute not found in many companies today. This type of customer service makes me glad to have chosen Maine Thread as our supplier and I am looking forward to doing business with you again in the future. Thank You. I haven't received the product as of today, so I am unable to give an actual rating. But I trust the product will be as good as your customer service, so, for now I am rating it as a four.

yellow thread
I am very happy with the .040 yellow waxed cord that I purchased. It kind of flattens out when I use it to stitch the soles on toddler shoes that I make, so there's nothing to rub inside the shoe. And, the fact that it is polyester works well for this purpose, in that it doesn't degrade while being worn. The color range is terrific!

Ideal for Hand-Bound Books
I have used Maine Thread's waxed poly thread for years as a completely acceptable substitute for much more expensive waxed linen thread in the construction of exposed spine books. The mid-weight threads are high quality, strong and reliable. In addition, Maine Thread's shipping charges are very reasonable and they ship quickly. I'm starting to teach book arts classes and will recommend Maine Thread's products to my students. If I could make any suggestions, it would be that the company would have more colors and market them to the growing book-arts community. Keep up the great work, Maine Thread! And, support "Made in the U.S.A.!"

Great stuff
As much as I hate hand stitching leather, Maine thread makes it much more enjoyable. A very well made thread, with just the right amount of wax, consistent color throughout, and very easy threading through harness needles. You will love this stuff.

Add some sunshine to the mix
This shade of yellow is fantastic: not too neon, but not too muted as to look like mustard...somewhere in between. Goes nicely with the orange and hot pink cord colors.

Wonderful Thread
I ordered the Yellow in .40 for a project I havent gotten around too but recently was charged with making a holster made to look as if it had come from Louis Vuitton so I finally got a chance to try the thread. I hand sew and this thread was a pleasure to use. Just enough wax! Some thread I buy has so much wax on it that it is difficult and messy to use. This was wonderful. the thread has a firm texture and the color was oh so juicy. I will be on the site again tomorrow picking up more thread in more colors. Thread is great and the price is nice.

yellow waxed cord.
I've purchased Scarlet and royal blue waxed cord. Both are easy to use. Strong, tough thread, holds stitched leather like a vice. Sews and pulls through punched leather like hot knife through butter. I am and will continue to be a repeat customer.
