Floss & Bead Conversion Chart

Below is a basic conversion for DMC, Anchor, J&P, Gentle Arts Sampler Threads and Mill Hill Beads. The chart is based on DMC colors which are in the first column. If a number is not listed in the chart we couldn’t find a suitable conversion for that number. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone through the list, so it might not be perfect, but still a handy reference.
