Hi
I just bought a pre-printed Flower of the month panel. Need small projects when we snowbird this winter. It will be either Red work or Blue work. Which brand floss should I use as I don't want the Red to run.

Get the DMC from Hobby Lobby or Michaels They also have thread in a small spool that i like to used when doing red or black work I just use it as it is I don't have to seperate it. Pearl cotton.

Yes, you can also colour them. I bought two of them, i want a Red work and a Blue work. They were on clearance for two dollars a panel. Here in Canada we don't often get such bargins. I think they are preparing for no fabric at Walmart.

I've always had good luck with DMC, although most of what I've done was not intended to be washed, just washed to get the fingerprints off before framing.

I would always use DMC when I was doing a lot of cross-stitching

Try Cosmo's by lucien. My LQS sells this and it's great. I also use DMC but my most recent Redwork has been with the Cosmos

Thanks, I can get DMC so will use that.
Texas granny, we have been going to Yuma for the last 3 years. Have been meaning to try The RVG, just hasn't happened yet.
