Conversion Charts for Embroidery Thread and Floss

By

Many kits, books or magazine projects list the particular brand or type of embroidery thread or embroidery floss used in the featured project.

This is most commonly the designer's favorite, or the brand that is most common in their area.

If you prefer to use a different brand of thread rather than the one recommended in a project, a conversion chart will help you find the corresponding color numbers for threads produced by other manufacturers.
