Where are the Color Change
For every design we provide a color change sheet. This sheet lists the
colors that we used to stitch the design. You can follow the color
change sheet exactly, or use it as a guide and select colors that you
prefer -- the choice is yours.
Links to color change sheets are located near the design on the website:
After you purchase a design, the links to
the color change sheets are also conveniently added to your order
A color change sheet includes excellent
information. Scroll down the page to see the highlighted features you'll
find on each color change sheet.
At the top of the color change sheet, you'll
find a box full of product information:
Information such as
product ID, size, stitch count, total number of thread changes and
colors used, the type of thread that was used, plus a link to the
Thread Exchange so you can find equivalent thread numbers to the
thread brand you use.
If the product has
special instructions, you'll find a link in the Product Comments
There are customizable tools and buttons on
the color change sheet that you can use to view, print, and download the
color change sheet:
A friendly layout
including a 'Show Me' section with check boxes so you can control
what information you see on the color change sheet.
A 'Download PDF'
button so you can save an electronic copy of the color change sheet
on your computer.
A 'Download TXT File' button
so you can change colors using that
cool trick in Embird.
A 'Print' button that
makes it even easier to print the color information. Use the check
boxes to hide or show any color information you want before printing
the color change sheet.
The color change section shows the number of color changes as well as
the unique colors used for each design:
The 'Color / Thread Changes' section lists the color changes you'll follow to stitch
out the design.
Thread your machine with the color recommended in CC1 (color change 1).
Then, when your machine stops for a thread/color change, thread your
machine with the color recommended in CC2. Continue until the design is
complete. You can hide this section by unchecking the 'Color Change
Information' check box at the top of the color change sheet.
The 'Unique Colors Used'
section displays all of the unique thread colors that are used in
the design. You can hide this section by unchecking the 'Unique
Colors' check box at the top of the color change sheet.
Color swatches are
provided in both sections that show an example of the colors used in
that design. You can use these thread swatches to match up colors of
the thread brand you use. To hide these color swatches, uncheck the
'Color Swatches' check box at the top of the color change sheet.
At the bottom of the
color change sheet, you'll find the design image. To hide this
image, uncheck the 'Design Image(s)' check box at the top of the color
change sheet. To display a smaller image, check the Reduced-size
Image check box.
