I can't find the Madeira thread
The color change sheets provide Madeira thread
numbers. All of the numbers listed are current, active, and "real" thread
numbers. To see if a thread number is "real," visit
www.MadeiraUsa.com, and type the thread number into the search box. You
can see the shade of color that way, too.
You - or your favorite thread supplier - might be unable to find the thread
colors that we list on the color change sheet. That means that you (or your thread supplier) are
referring to an abbreviated thread chart.
Madeira's full thread chart is #425. That thread card contains over 350
swatches, available in cones. The abbreviated card is numbered #119,
and is the one that usually comes with a Thread Chest. That thread card
contains a smaller selection of colors that are available in spools.
If you can't find a color that is listed on the color change sheet, no
worries. Just use what is convenient to you. The color change sheets that we
provide for the designs give descriptions, such as "light blue" or "pine
green," so you can pick between
brands and manufacturers to find the colors that you want to use.
You are also welcome to use the free
Thread Exchange to find more matches
between brands and manufacturers.
