DMC Conversions

Due to space constraints on my covers, I am not always able to provide a conversion to DMC with my charts. I always want to make them available to you however, and thought perhaps an extra tab on my blog might be easier to access than trying to reach out through email (although I'm usually pretty quick to respond).

Because of the nuances of color that come from using overdyed threads, no DMC conversion will ever in any way be able to duplicate what you see on the model. Having said this, I understand that the specialty threads can be cost-prohibitive. The following conversions are as accurate as I can make them.

Each design has its own conversion because dye lots change and the same thread color from three years ago might have a different shade to it today.

If you are on a budget but want to impart some of the same effect as you see in the model, I suggest only converting the threads that are used in small sections, but splurging on the specialty threads when they are stitched in a larger section, such as a field of grass, a large tree, a woman's dress, a mansion, etc.

I will update this page as I am able with conversions. If there is one that you need but don't see here, please contact me via email: beth@heartstringsamplery.com

Conversions will be listed in alphabetical order.
