I'll try them again.  I only found the cheap stuff last time I was there.
I prefer using J & P Coats thread because it's softer, not stiff and wiry
like the cheap stuff.

My usual J & P Coats thread source lately is when my local thrift store
gets some, which only happens occasionally.  I sometimes find bags with
really weird variegated stuff, tatting cotton, or Royal Society brand stuff
from the 20's.

Northern CA Wal marts don't seem to carry J & P Coats thread, only the
cheap stuff, but they do have a good selection of crochet hooks.  (I went
there yesterday and couldn't find any, which is why I posted.)  OTOH,
Lacis, local to me, always has white and ecru in any brand or size
currently made, if I want to pay their prices.
