hi,

Prices for DMC threads are really rocketing.. Now is abt RM1.80 per skein.

On the same note, I noticed that there are shops in KL selling Anchor at RM1.20-1.30 per skein.

I wondered if the quality defers? I recalled ages ago (more than 10 yrs ago), using Anchor threads and sadly the threads are easily frayed, tat's why until now I stayed faithful to DMC despite the price hike.

How about now, does Anchor thread frays easily? Share with me your views.

Thks.

hello Jacqueline..
hm...i am very rare use Anchor lah. only have not more than 5 skein i think. DMC also can be fade.but not really noticed mayb bcoz the thread is shining, stronger than other brand.
im not sure whether Anchor easily frays or not.Anchor also famous brand rite.

hei..

yupz, Anchor is a popular alternative. I know of other brands include Minlon and Cosmo. There is a shop in SS2 which sells only Anchor threads, I was told that the thread doesn't fray anymore. hmmm... I wonder...

Still, DMC dominates the market.

So, nowadays, what I will do is to apply a lil vaseline on the threads for smoother stitching.. *oh?! is it okay?*

Nice work you've done!
Do you have any good recommendation on Anchor <> DMC code conversion? Got a pattern with Anchor code, but can't find Anchor floss nearby. Tried conversion table, now my tatty bear look like termakan racun... so sad...

BalkisMR said...

erk.. tak biasa la convert Anchor to DMC. pernah try jugak google. sometimes mcm beza2 je kan? hhehe. Ala kesian bear tu termakan racun :P
