Tag: DmcAll 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 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.
DMC thread or floss is very popular with cross stitchers and although DMC themselves do not sell to consumers directly. There are now several hundred different colour shades within the DMC range.
The Colour chart below shows the DMC range of stranded cottons.
When you go shopping for DMC threads, do you always end up with a list on a scrap of paper? This is what I always used to do until I got fed up with losing it or getting the wrong colour or quantity of threads.
