View Full Version : Cross-stitch Thread

25-08-2008, 09:24 PM
Hi, I'm Sarah. I normally post in card making but I'm doing a cross-stitch at the moment and I've run out of the Dark Brown (801) thread that came with the kit. I only need a tiny bit but the only one I found on Ebay was a lot of 12/13 skeins and I really don't need that much. Does anyone know where I might find just one skein for sale? Any help would be much appreciated.x

If you have a John Lewis near you they should have some in their habberdashery department.
You say the number is 801, do you know if the make is Anchor or DMC. There will be a different number for the same colour depending on the make, does that make sense?
I would try and find a conversion chart so that you know the right number for both makes.

Hope I haven't confused you too much.

Thanks so much, I didn't realise there were different makes so I will check. x
