When I purchased my tarp I also decided to pick up the recommended thread.
It showed up at the home and that saved me a long trip off the mountain to git to the city and pick up some out of a rainbow rack of shapes, sizes and prices.
Thank you for offering the "accessories" needed to make this tarp a reality.
I usually pick up a roll af thread from wally world for my tent projects, but decided to give the Gutermann thread a try. I am glad I did. This thread was much better than the standard polyester thread sold at department stores. Is is thicker and stronger and sews very well. I will continue to use this high quality thread, especially since the cost is about the same as the low quality thread.
Not sure what in your shipping changed. FedEx failed at getting my items to me in a timely manner. I was charged $7.95 for shipping. If it was USPS that would be Priority Mail and easily got to me within 2-3 days tops. With FedEx my package went from N Carolina, backwards to Tennessee then past me to Ronkonkoma NY and didn't get to me until the following week on Monday when I expected it by Thursday the same week. This is not the first time this happened. Makes me reluctant to order again, pay Priority prices only to be disappointed and not be able to get your product to me so I can make my product and satisfy my own customers in a timely manner.
I do like the thread - it's definitely better than regular thread but not as good as outdoor. Still trying to groove with this 1.9 rip stop, for the money it's honestly a lot thinner than other brands for the same money. Great color choices though- gotta please the customer.
Product came quick as usual, good service
