Color names of newest DMC Threads

Postby SofaraStarfyre » Tue May 12, 2015 8:26 pm

I am particular about keeping track of color numbers and names for colors I have in a spread sheet, so that I can make substitutions if I need to. Well, I bought the newest DMC color package that came out in 2013 a while back... I was wondering if anyone knew if DMC had come out with names for them or not.

Here is a link to the package I am talking about if anyone wants to see what I mean: http://www.shopdmc.com/ecommerce/CatalogItemDetail.aspx?CID=1122&IID=1122

Hey, which app do you use for the numbers? I always use my tablet for the patterns and any good app for stitching would be useful!
I am a self learner who started stitching in high school. After years of break I am finally back to cross stitching, thanks to this forum!

Of course! The app is called Thread Tracker 117, or TT117. Another spriter, concraftidor suggested it and I got it. It's really wonderful and useful. It's only a couple bucks but worth it. The only thing that's time consuming is changing the ones you have in the app so you know you have it. But you can create lists of colors you need to buy, how many you have of the color, and whether they're on a bobbin.

I also use TT117! Getting all my threads into the app was a pain, but it is awesome for keeping track of what I have.
