HELLO! all "sewers" a question on "piping" and logwood thread suppliers
Hey folks..Ive had a few of these suppliers bookmarked in the past ..but with a puter crash and the C.R.S. syndrome..well lets just say Im without a clue..Ive done a lil searching without avail and so I come with hat in hand..to wit: Im not that much of a "sewer" tho I can throw the odd stich Im going to "lightly" trim a shell jacket around the collar and epulettes with ( if I have my drathers) black piping, problem is I cant find suppliers, and maybe more to the point I cant find suppliers of what I "envision"..that is piping with a "tongue" if you will that is to say , round cord wrapped with cloth and sewn together: "welting" would be the upholstering word for what Im looking for..I could make this myself mind ya but Im hoping to find some ready mades out there, and also Logwood thread which Ive seen available in the past...somewhere...any ideas before I chuck it all and go with worsted wool tape?? thanks!!
