our searchable thread catalog just type in the
color, number or other description you are looking
for. Unlike our pages below, which allow you to add
a lot at once, the searchable catalog allows you to
add one thread at a time, but will list anything
that matches your search. Useful for when you don't
know who the vendor is or the name of the thread,
just the color. Don't include the name of the
manufacturer in your search, it doesn't always show
up correctly. Just search for the color name or
number. If you want the entire thread catalog type
*.* as the search term.
If you want to do some Power Shopping check out the pages
below by vendor and thread.
If you're looking for an old Needle Necessities
color try searching for NN and the color number
(e.g. NN 100) or SpringII and the color number (e.g.
SpringII 301). You can check the ThreadworX website
for all of their potential substitutes.
If you don't find a color in the searchable catalog,
look in the lists below. We update the full pages
first, so the searchable catalog can lag for new
colors. If you are looking for the newest colors in
any thread you can search for New 20xx with Match
ALL Keywords and you'll get the list of our newest
|Threads or ribbons not
