SBQ of the Week



This week’s SBQ was suggested by Jan and is:

How many different brands of “complete” embroidery floss sets do you own? How do you keep track of it? (i.e., spread sheet program, index cards, palm pilot, etc.)

I have a complete set of DMC , ordered as a complete set years ago. The set includes a yard or two of each color, not near what a individual skein contains. It has been, however, a big help to use for a reference to see the actual color of a number looks like. Also, I do use some of it, if I only need a very small amount of that color.

I also have a nearly complete set of DMC, wrapped on bobbins. I have multiples of some numbers and none of a few others.

I also have a lot of whole skeins or bobbins, pulled from the storage boxes, kitted with several charts.

If I had to give an exact number of sets of DMC, I'd have to say 2 1/2, give or take a few numbers I'm missing.

I plan to use Microsoft Excel to keep track of all my thread stash, but so far, I haven't taken time to do it.

(I have about 20 - 25 spools of metallic Kreinik threads, too.)
