Bead Conversion Charts

Oh, look! Mary Corbet has posted a list of bead conversion links!  The conversion charts give you color equivalencies between thread brands and bead brands (or between bead brands) so you can substitute threads for beads (and vice versa) or change brands if that's all that you have available, and also makes it easy to order long distance.  You can call your favorite shop and ask for a Mill Hill bead that you know is close to DMC color number X for your next project, for example.

Thanks once again, Mary!

So useful for people who must order on-line or by mail order. I prefer to go to my local shop (NIAH) to choose my beads in person, but I know I'm totally fortunate to have a world class shop nearby and not everyone is as lucky. However, Mary's comparison chart helps me compile a list at home to take with me, and then I can start swapping out colors when I'm at the shop, if I need to. Thanks for the link, Jane!--- Wendy
