Anchor - DMC Conversion Chart?

I just received a September Stitch Along invitation from the Cross Stitch SAL group at my Facebook. So, I think I will continue to stitch my table-cloth at this event… (Well, I need to refresh my eyes and working on some colors instead of the monochrome).

Then I decide to do this in-between project.. The Margaret Sherry’s birthday hedgehog from October edition of Cross Stitcher #230. I think I will give it later to my daughter’s 5th grade classmate.

But then I hesitate when I convert the Anchor’s color number to DMC’s. It doesn’t fit the color on the sketch. You can see that MS always use Anchor instead of DMC. At the local stores here in Bandung, they only sell DMC and Blue Moon floss. I rarely find another brand, such as Anchor, Madeira, Coats, etc.

Here is what I have done so far. I wasn’t sure about the color of the background and the cheek… Maybe I should browse on another conversion chart. Any suggestions stitchers?


  1. Sorry, haven't found it yet...! :(

  2. Yep, I think I have to use the floss and conversion chart that I've had... :(

  3. Hi Dinny!
    I love that design, is soooo cute =)
    I always convert all colors to DMC, this is the only brand that I use. To convert, I go to Cyber Stitchers, try to check your colors here ;)
    Also, remeber that sometimes, the photo doesn't look exactly like the real colors, the print may not be 100% accurate too ;)

  4. Hi Nia, thanks for the information!
    I'll go check the website to have a "second opinion".. :)

  5. For me, it's quite the opposite here: it's always easier for me to find Anchor floss for my works. Next time, if you still aren't satisfied w/ the convertion result, drop me a note and we can exchange flosses. =)
    Thanks for the visit to my blog!
    Big hug!

  6. Hi Janaina..
