I have always used DMC, though I have bought some silks to try (just haven't started using them yet) I recently got a package from a well meaning relative who knows I x-stitch.
Inside is heaps and heaps of floss... but brands I have never heard of before!
Can anyone comment on the following...
*Bucilla - says it's super mercerized, six-strand, sunfast-boilproof, made in U.S.
*Peri-Lusta - says it's mercerised cotton, six-strand, made in England
*Star six strand - says fast color- will boil, American Thread Co, Fall River, Mass.
I'm thinking these are quite ancient...? and possibly the kind of threads that knot all the time! Any ideas? I have 2 ziplock baggies full of pinks, one of purples, one of yellows and one of maroons... enough that I'd feel guilty if I just tossed them in the bin!
Anyone know if there's an iPhone/iTouch app for DMC floss? Or, another way to have an inventory?
I used to have a card (key word "used") that had the numbers, but I've lost it... and since I have to go through and update a paper checklist that I found on DMC's website anyway, I figured that I'd see if there was an app. I couldn't find one, but didn't know if anyone knew of anything that would work?
