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.

About Loretta Oliver

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.
