If you’re looking for conversion charts for your current embroidery project – say, you have a kit that calls for DMC, but you have Anchor floss – there are a few good resources on the internet that can help you.
Probably my favorite conversion chart is from DMC to Soie d’Alger. I love soie d’alger, and I have a little stash (relative to the number of colors available!), but I have a huge stash of DMC. If I find a color I like in DMC, but want the silk thread, then this conversion chart at The Sophisticated Stitcher comes in handy.
In fact, here’s the whole list of conversion and color charts at The Sophisticated Stitcher. You’ll love having this handy tool!
Just remember when you’re looking at colors online – your monitor may not reflect accurately the color you are considering! It’s always better to see the product in person, or, if you’re considering purchasing fabric, to request a swatch.
