Brother Embroidery Thread that matches our books!!
The Brother/Disney Embroidery Machines come with pre chosen designs. In the machine and the instruction books it displays what thread color example and number they used for each piece of the design.
Being a novice to machine embroidery I didnÂt know that Brother/Disney made their own thread, and I searched and searched to find out who made the thread they used in the designs to no avail. My Brother dealer and the other dealers in the area, all sell RA Polyster and Madeira Polyneon thread, but not brother. So you have to convert the numbers. RA [Robison-Anton] has a great converter for them at: http://www.robison-anton.com/main.html
