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

      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!

    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 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!

    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!

    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! đŸ™‚

    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!
