Cross Stitch Floss Conversion Chart

A little note about floss colors

To a dedicated stitcher like me there is nothing worse than running out of a particular color of floss during the middle of a project. Where I live I have to travel at least 30 miles to find a store that carries embroidery floss so I usually buy online in bulk. I also find myself buying little plastic bags filled with a variety of floss colors and brands at various garage sales and thrift stores. Sometimes I hit a gold mine and find colors that I use all of the time and sometimes I end up with a bunch of floss in a brand that I rarely use. It is a pain to try and match up colors from different brands so I decided to go ahead and put a conversion chart on that covers DMC, Anchor and JP Coats. While I was at it, I decided to add the names of the matching Mill Hill Beads for those who use them in their stitching projects.  If you don't find a matching bead color it would be a good idea to match the floss to the bead the besst you can.  The beads do not have to match perfectly, all they need to do is blend well with the color you are using.  Please keep in mind that in some cases the colors may not match identically but you will find that they blend, in most cases, well enough that you can't tell the difference when your project is done. I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me,

      There is a constant replacing of colors that go on. I would just use the 3326 as it is the most current.

      Hi! I have a question. (All DMC color #'s) I'm currently working on a pattern that tells me to use "776 - Pink-Med." and "3326 - Rose-Lt." However, the colors look identical to my eye, and the 3326 label has (776) beneath it parenthesis. Upon a little research, I've found that 776 was replaced by 3326 years ago, but my local Joann's is still selling 776. Can you shed any light on this for me? Thank you!!!

      You are quite welcome acaetnna, I 'm glad you've found it useful. I spend as much time as I can doing cross stitching. I find it relaxing, it's hard to think about anything else while you're doing it. Unfortunately, like you everyday life seems to get in the way.

      I used to do lots of cross stitching but everyday living has left me with little time. One of my resolutions is to make more time for myself so that I may pursue hobbies such as needlecraft. Your chart here will help me enormously so I am book marking it and saying a very big thank you.

      amy, I use the conversion chart all of the time. One of my passions is crossstitching - designing and working it.

      Thanks so much, very useful. I'm doing embroidery off and on all year long, more now in the winter. I really will use this, a great guide, just print it out fellow floss users, and follow!! A.B.

      Knowing what color from another manufacturer that can be substitiuted is invaluable when you are an avid stitcher. Thanks

      I haven't done any cross stitching in years but I know someone who does so I'll pass along your hub.
