Unravel the Rainbow: Ultimate Guide to Thread Color Conversions

Ever wondered how to select the right color when the embroidery design you’re working with suggests a brand you don’t have? You’re in luck! I’ve got some tools and methods to help you out.

Three Handy Methods to Convert Embroidery Thread Colors

  1. Embroidery Software: If you have embroidery software like Hatch 3 or the free dime’s Embroidery ToolShed, you can load various thread charts. Once set, you can easily convert designs to your desired thread brand.
  2. Thread Conversion Charts: Handy printable or PDF charts are available for frequent conversions between brands. Keep these charts close to your embroidery machine for quick access.
  3. Your Embroidery Machine: Modern machines often come with built-in thread charts. For instance, my Brother Luminaire lets me switch between multiple thread brands. Always check your machine’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for this feature.

While there are numerous thread conversion charts out there, I’ve sorted them alphabetically by the brand you’re converting to. Just remember, conversions might not always be perfect due to color variations and changing thread numbers. So, always double-check before you start stitching!
