New Numbers for J P Coats floss
From: luvmysomacube67
I bought some J P Coats floss at WalMart and they have put all new numbers on the skeins. If anyone can help me with the conversion to DMC I would really appreciate it. It was the 100 skein pkg. with 20 variegated, and 80 solid. Thanks

From: Judy
Found several sites with conversions just not sure if they are for the new numbers:

Of course you have the one right here on Cyberstitchers but again not sure if it's the old or new numbers.

Hope that helps, enjoy your day.

Happy Stitching,

yes walmart did that on J&P coats and they do not answer their emails. Can't find conversion either.
Poor customer serves on J&P. Have to buy all new colors! I have a quart sized baggie full of old J&P J & P and a few misc. odds and ends. Most are in the original skein. Picked up at garage sales and acquaintances. I'm keeping the DMCs. Using them to sew for WOCS (World of Charity Stitching). I am willing to share the misc stuff to anyone in the St Louis area who wants to pick them up. (near Thornhill public library.) Only condition is that you promise not to resell for profit.

Some of the jp numbers are old so you have to look up the new number for the old number. Some of them don't cross ref to any of the other one. Did u buy patterns for Walmart? I found an old pattern and having a are time finding so think I will just go with what I feel like or find a different pattern
ATTN: ZETTLER -- I have a lot of old J&P floss. If you send me the numbers you need I will be glad share them with you -- if I can help

I also have a baggie of J.&P. Coats thread from Walmart, and cannot find a conversion chart because the numbers are funky. Has anyone found a conversion chart? Otherwise I may just have to toss them or use them to make bracelets or something.

Hi, I am new to the cross stitching world. It is helping me kick my bad smoking habit. I purchased a ton of J&P Coats from Walmart, but I can't find what the colors are based off the numbers I have. Does anyone have any info to help me?
