Thread too shiny
« on: May 11, 2023, 02:46:33 PM »
We did some hats for a good customer last year, and they felt the thread was "too shiny". We sub our embroidery out, but I want to know a little better myself before I talk to them. Are there threads available that aren't shiny? Cotton perhaps?

I made a mistake once; I thought I was wrong about something; I wasn't
