    Does anyone have a really old list of Anchor threads to current threads as I have 25 year old ones that aren’t listed on any list that l can find. Really want to compare them.

    Do you have a free inventory sheet for anchor thread ?

      Not yet I’m afraid, but we are planning to make one soon!

    I would like to print you put on my email from you. It says embroidery conversion table. I has conversion from DMC to various other brands. But I can’t find it anymore. Can you help me please?

    Thank you Lord Libidan. So helpful ! I am trying to find a missing colour from a Thea Gouverneur kit. Anyone who has used these , beautiful but confusing charts knows the problems involved if you loose a thread from its symbol.

    Appreciate your help.

    Hi, im looking for a nice light blue as a back ground for my cross stitching project but am unsure which one to choose, which number for light blue would you recommend?

    1. LordLibidan

      If you want a background, I would suggest using a colored fabric instead. Zweigarts “light blue” or “pale blue” are nice. However if you specifically wanted thread:
      Pale blue is the same color as DMC 162
      Light blue is the same color as DMC 827

    Where can l get a chart which shows actual floss examples with name of color and number. DMC regular thread group.

    1. LordLibidan

      If you want a physical copy you can buy one directly from the DMC website.
      Hope that helps!

    Hi! This chart is very helpful thank you for uploading it! I noticed in the color to chart column pdf there are often colors repeated but with an “E” before them. Would you happen to know why this is? They are also often listed in two columns.

    1. LordLibidan

      The E series are the current metallics range. The two neons and the one glow-in-the-dark thread also have the E at the start.
      There is also a C series which is the new Etoile range.

    Thank you for posting this image & creating such a helpful spreading!

    What I’m looking for is a “color locator chart,” which has the colors listed numerically with the corresponding location on the color card.

        Just found your 2 great charts. Thanks so much!
