This is one of my most important "tools" for doing stitcheries. It is the DMC color card which I can't live without! Although this 12 page printed color card includes shades of pearl cotton, satin floss, color variation floss, metallics, and more...it's sole purpose for me is the six strand DMC floss colors. You will find it especially useful if you are stitching away and come to find you don't have a particular DMC color that your pattern calls for. Refer to your chart and substitute a similar DMC floss without changing the overall look of your stitchery. My chart is getting a tad bit tattered....perhaps that's because I use it daily.
