BREAKING NEWS: DMC Discontinues Memory Thread UPDATED

I hadn't heard that DMC is discontinuing their memory thread. Oh, NO! What to do!!?!  Fortunately, Kreinik has you covered—use their Hot Wire instead.  Hot Wire is size 16 Kreinik braid with wire in the middle so it is bendable.  This nifty article has a conversion chart between DMC's colors and Kreinik's.  They even tell you how to make your own color in memory thread using a regular size 16 braid.

By the way, Kreinik now calls Hot Wire by Wired Braid instead, which is more descriptive, I guess.

UPDATE:  It occurred to me that many folks have not used memory thread, so here's Mary Corbet's review of it.
