Moonlight are bookmakers good? I had sent them an email and they never responded for me....

Kiley I live in the Metro D.C. area and actually go to their store. So I don't have any experience ordering online or via the phone. When did you email them and what were you trying to order?

Kiley said...

I had sent them an email about colored thread (to see if it was waxed) and info on a sample card. The say they carry 40 colors of thread and I got really excited, but never heard back.

How strange. They do have a large selection of colored thread and it is waxed. I will mention your email to Cindy the next time I am there.
