    Hi! This is a great tool! I really would like to use it but every color I pick it gives only the palette of the DMC 160..I’m I doing something wrong??

    1. krisztina says:

      Hi Clara! To pick a color just click on any number, and that should take you to another page with the color’s details. Is that what you’re doing now?

      1. CLARA says:

        HI Krisztina! Thank you for your super fast reply! Yes, that’s exactly what I’m doing, but with every color I click, it redirects me into another page, but it’s always the page of the palette of the DMC 160 🙁

        1. krisztina says:

          Thank you so much Clara for reporting this! That’s certainly not how it’s supposed to work. I will look into it shortly.

            Thank you so much to you!!

    I am working on cross stitch SAL where I started with Australian floss gold/orange/pink/gold/dirty green. I need other bright colours to go with this.
    (Would like to add a photo of the floss but cant here)

    Love this tool, super helpful for getting started!
    I came here to try and find colours on a spectrum between two threads I currently have in my sewing box (wish I had found this tool first!). Is there any way this feature could be incorporated? It would also be great to allow users to “save” or “pin” chosen colours to their palette for comparison, similarly as they may already own XYZ threads, but want to have a visual opportunity to compare ABC threads with XYZ before ordering them online.

    1. krisztina says:

      Hi Vikki, these are all wonderful ideas and I think it would make the generator much more helpful. It will require a good amount of coding, but I’ll look into it and see what I can do. Thank you so much for your feedback!

    I just wanted to comment on how AMAZING this website is! I have been collecting photos of color schemes for this project I’m working on and would bring the photos to the store to try and match the thread colors. This website does it in seconds!! It’s also given me inspiration on other colors I hadn’t thought about using before. Thank you so much, it’s truly helped me in so many ways!

    1. krisztina says:

      Dear Kari, wow thank you so much for your beautiful words, they mean the world to me ♥. I am very happy to have you here and so glad to know that you find my site useful. Keep having fun!

  5. BeckieSueDalton says:

    Thank you for this resource!
    You’ve done an amazing job and deserve all the kudos in the world!!

    I’m working on a coding project that’s just as complex to research and process, so I know first-hand the hours and hours upon week-years that a Crafters Resource like this takes.

    Seriously.. massive kudos! 🙂

    1. krisztina says:

      Thank you so much Beckie for sharing your thoughts, your comment made me really happy today! ♥

  6. Naomi says:

    I haven’t used one yet, but I’m getting ready to for a 52 week stitch along!

    I wanted to suggest that you add a “buy me a cup of coffee” link on your page! I’ll likely never purchase anything, but I’d happily buy you a cup of coffee for all the work you do!

    Thank you for all of your beautiful colors!

    I need colors for wines, grapes, cocktail drinks, vegetables and fruits. I am finding this site very interesting. With the pandemic and doing the Christmas baking embroidering has been my pass time for a friend that wants embroidered flour sacks. And, my beautician has them in her shop for sale. So, I’d like to have look their best!

  8. Gayle says:

    I’m making birth samplers for my 3 grandkids. I’m using the same pattern for all, just changing the color palettes for each. However, the pattern calls for 7 colors. How can I best select a 7th color to add to the six I’ve chosen from your amazing collection? I love this site…..wish this had been available ages ago!
    Thank you.

    1. krisztina says:

      Good question Gayle! My advice is to take the color that will be most prominent in your pattern, and running it through this generator. See what matches the generator will give you, and select one suggested thread that will look nice with the remaining five colors you’ve chosen. Hope this helps!

    I am looking for Santa Fe color scheme. Can you help me??

    1. krisztina says:

      Great idea Beth! I just created a very colorful one based on a Santa Fe market, just do search for Santa Fe and you’ll find it. I hope you like the multitude of colors!
