Embroidery Designs and
Thread Colors for Machine Embroidery Sewing
I wish that I had a nickel for each time I've been asked
for the "exact" colors I used in an embroidery design or
for a conversion chart for specific embroidery thread
brands - I would be a very wealthy woman! Everyone seems to
think that someone is going to knock on their door with a
search warrant if they don't use the exact colors a
designer used in the test sew out or the color numbers used
in the stitch directions. Not so - if you don't "think
outside the box" and use colors that you enjoy, or just
prefer, you are really missing the real fun of machine
embroidery! Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've
ever used the exact color on any design I've ever stitched
in 6+ years-some because I didn't have the exact color
& others due to a dislike of the colors used.
