DMC vs J&P Coats

Thank you for having the conversion chart of DMC to J&P Coats. But, I must be finding really old J&P skeins as they have only 2 numbers, some have the number and A, the next one B. Any ideas?

    I am having the same issue. Can anyone point me to an actual conversion chart for J & P Coats to DMC that contains any numbers that might match the numbers printed on the J & P Coats skeins? Go to top

      I posted a comment on their website, http://www.makeitcoats.com, and they emailed me a pdf chart right away. I also found this chart online which is useful if you have old Clark's/Anchor thread: https://atelierchellie.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/anchor-stranded-cotton-numbers-old-to-new.pdf Go to top

    I too have a large quantity of old floss from J&P Coats marked 5,8,12 and 15 cents on the color label. The chart that was mentioned does not contain any of the floss that is this old or have I missed it. I have numbers as: 7-A, 90-A, 59-B, 5-A and so forth. The floss is in great shape and would like to use it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    After much searching I ended up on www.redheart.com I mentioned my problem which is the same as yours and today they mailed me a conversion chart with these very very old numbers. Let me know if I can help you with any of them '=
