You know I’m not trying to convince anyone to buy floss but . .
If you’re a cross stitcher and have never used Victorian Motto floss, you should try it. The colors are great. There’s 20 yards per skein (cotton floss) and the skeins come in “collections” so, at least I’ve never seen, individual skeins but most skeins average out to about $2.75 before shipping. Most overdyes come in 5 yard skeins and are in the $2 – $3 range per skein so Victorian Motto floss is really a bargain and, I’ve found it to be great floss.
Here’s where it comes in so handy for me. I keep a DMC color book handy.
I keep my Victorian Motto floss on rings according to color. I’ll probably never need to find a specific skein by name.
If I need a DMC color and don’t have it, I can look it up in the book, see exactly what color it is, then match it to a Victorian Motto floss.
Another way this is great for me is that designs like many of Teresa Kogut’s Patreon charts are computer generated – having not been actually stitched yet and her floss colors have not been auditioned on any particular linen. That’s also true with charts that have been stitched. It’s rare that a linen that was used in a particular design is in my stash. Often, then linens used are not even available. When I have to choose a linen from my stash, there may be called for floss colors that are too light or don’t work with the linen.
So, having a good selection of Victorian Motto makes me happy.
I hadn’t ordered any of their floss in a long while so the other day I checked their Etsy site and there were colors I don’t have so I ordered a few packets.
These are the colors in the August Primitive Floss Club packet:
The 4th from the left that’s called “Gourds” . . that is the PERFECT pumpkin color. I love that one.
These are Halloween Classics. Love these colors.
You can read the names on the other sets. I’ve shown you the left two. The one on the far right is called “Antique Blues from Previous Sets”.
I’ve never been disappointed in any of Victorian Motto’s floss packets.
