running out of thread

Hello happy stitchers,

I purchased Thomas Kinkade's Sweetheart Gazebo many many years ago, I actually do not even know where this kit came from it could have been a gift from someone. My problem is I was teaching myself the parking method before trying it out on a really big project so I am running out of thread. Are the Candamar Designs conversion chart to DMC pretty accurate? I would like to go purchase more thread so I can finish this project because it is moving along so fast.

Thank You,
K. Thompson LMT, MTI

    Kelly, Check out the Candamar conversions here on cyberstitchers if you have the number or whatever Candamar uses and hopefully that will answer your question.

    Enjoy your day and happy stitching...Judy :) Go to top

    I just joined the MB and read your item. I hope you have already solved your problem; but if not...I had this happen to me a couple of times with kits. I called the manufacturer and informed them that there wasn't enough thread of a particular color and they sent me some more thread at no charge. Trust yourself on substitutions. Good luck! Go to top
