My boring job (shh, don't tell the boss) is a Power Broker/ trading analyst for a large wholesale power company. (think Enron, but we're non-profit )Mark what do you do for a living? lol. I need a job where I can get all the latest and greatest and order $90 of thread at a time lol
At any rate yeah I wasn't sure I wanted to buy that much thread, but it saved me significantly off the single spool price, and since I got my rod builders dealerss license (legit now, despite the advise I got from SOL ) I figured I'd better get cracking on my thread art- practice- practice, etc.
So - in for a penny, in for a pound.
I like the fact that Madeira offers so many color choices and it is way cheaper than Metallic HT- it comes in 1100 yd spools- for about the same price as the 100 yd spool of Gudebrod metallic
