All the time we have been running this website, we have been collecting lots of useful info on cross stitching and needlework, so we have decided to put it all up here so everyone can benefit. You will find all sorts of things on here from conversion charts to tips for left handed stitchers!

Anchor to DMC Conversion Chart

Anchor stranded cotton is manufactured by Coats Crafts UK, a company founded some 200 years ago, and is very popular with cross stitchers. There are now several hundred different colour shades within the Anchor range. The range is not quite as large as the DMC range with some variation between the colours provided by both companies. At present, Stitchtastic do not stock Anchor threads, but we will convert any of our charts to Anchor on request. A DMC to Anchor conversion chart is available and an Anchor to DMC conversion chart is shown below:

It is imperative to complete your piece of cross stitch work using thread or floss from the same manufacturer to ensure that there is no variation in colour of the finished article. If you have been stitching a Stitchtastic kit and you run out of any DMC threads, please contact us for additional metres.
