Discontinued DMC Colors

Hi, there! This is my first post. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for about four discontinued colors from DMC. I've tried eBay, Google searches, all kinds of online cross stitch stores, etc. If I find them, the site tells me it's out of stock, or they won't ship to the US.

The colors I'm looking for are:

116 Variegated Cyclamen Pink
127 Limited Edition Variegated Blue
3882 Beige Brown - Dark
3890 Peacock Blue - Light

If anyone knows where I can find these, PLEASE let me know!

Thanks so very much! ??

    I've been unable to find these colors as well. I would suggest you contact DMC at the following link:

      I tried that too, but they weren't very helpful. All they said was that the colors had been discontinued, which I already knew. When I asked if they ever intended to put them back in production again, they again told me that the colors had been discontinued and that they couldn't help me with them.

      Maybe if enough of us stitchers got together and signed a petition, they would start making them again?? May sound ridiculous to some, but there's a lot of us who not only collect their line, but also use them. I design my own patterns--mostly prayer cloths. When I stitch a prayer cloth, I give it away, but the ones with discontinued or specialty threads, I use for really special cases of needed prayer.

      Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. I appreciate it. :-) If you think of or find anything else, i'd love it if you would be willing to share.

      Thanks so much again, and God bless! :-) Go to top
