Threads &
                Ribbons

If you've not used our on-line catalog before we suggest you read our Ordering Information page, which has details about using the cart, estimated shipping costs, etc. You'll find accessories, embellishments, fabrics and more items off the main Catalog page.

While we have photos of many of the threads we carry which you may use as a general reference, we do not recommend making a color choice based solely on the photos. Dyelots change over time, sometimes by a substantial amount and photos are not updated with any regularity. Monitors will also display color differently. If you are trying to match a color, we suggest giving us a reference like DMC, Anchor or Needlepoint Inc. to match to. Then we can see what we have in current dyelots that might work for you.

To use our new 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). We currently only have the mapping for the floss and SpringII colors.

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 2014 with Match ALL Keywords and you'll get the list of our newest offerings.
