Floss Substitution

Posted by mamakane (My Page) on

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.

I would asked my craft shop where i buy my dmc cottons from as they would have an idea on another suitable color.Ros

RE: Floss Substitution

DMC 645 or 535 look like the closest.

RE: Floss Substitution

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
