    embroidery thread conversion charts

    I can't believe that when I bought my Brother SE400 that I bought a thread kit that didn't show what brand thread it was. You'd think it would have been written inside the spool or on the box. If it did I never found it. They work ok and the colors were nice and a good selection. But when I checked the conversion chart in my Brother manual the chart doesn't work because I don't have a brand name to plug in. Bummer. So when I'm doing a design it's impossible to check the displayed colors. I'm stuck printing out the designs color chart, in color and then play it by ear (or better yet eye) from there. Just annoying so I felt like doing a mini rant :-)

        Do the threads have numbers on them? What colors are the spools? If you can post a photo of one someone might know your brand.

        Floriani and XP-Poly (also called Exquisite) have books that have the actual thread colors. I use those to decide what color to use for designs.

        There was also a thread called "country" so that might be the one.

        Here is another conversion chart with different brands you might try.

        Good luck!

          I use to have a yarn holder for my weaving and had adapted it to hold my embroidery threads. Naturally they put the thread numbers right on the top hole of the spools so they got pierced when I put them on the rod holders. I was able to push and press down on few and found some numbers. Turns out that yes they were listed under Brother Embroidery on the first link. Yeah it worked! They were all great links.
          Thank you

          btw, has anyone else used Superior's Twist yarn for embroidery? I loved it for mono color designs. Haven't tried it for multi colors, it's pretty pricey.
