Floss Substitution

mamakaneJuly 11, 2005

Can anyone tell me a suitable DMC color substitution for DMC #3787 ? My local stores don't always carry the newest colors. There are only a few stitches needed, so a close match will work.

Thanks.

DMC 645 or 535 look like the closest.

Thanks xstitcher54. That's what I needed. I don't think my local store where I buy floss would be able to help - Walmart. While they are great for many things, they don't have the personal touch.

Take care, and happy stitching. mamakane
