Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find Anchor floss that is called for in some The Silver Lining patterns?
If your local LNS does not carry Anchor floss, there are several online stores that have the full line. Also, we sell Anchor floss in our online store either by the skein, or as packs specifically for some of our designs.
Some of your charts (Blue Delphiniums #110, Love #064) have the same Anchor floss number listed for two different symbols. Is this an error, and if so, what is correct?
These charts were designed using only DMC floss. When using Anchor floss instead, the chart shows the conversion to the best alternative or the closest color in Anchor. In this case, Marc recommends using the same Anchor color for both symbols. Or, one of the colors may be substituted by another color, or the comparable DMC color can be used for one of the two duplicates if desired to capture the color gradation. The cover models were stitched with DMC ONLY. Lot of people think they need all colors of both brands since I do mix the brands in may of my other designs. That is why these charts say to use EITHER DMC OR Anchor for these designs. I hope this helps!
