    Old J P Coats floss numbers

    I have an older JP Coats cross stitch book from the 80's and the numbers for the colors are diffferent that current Coats color charts. The numbers are on 3 digits and some are like 81b. Would anyone have an old coats color chart?

    Idea

    Please check Kathleen Dyer's Needlework FAQs - item 11 gives a conversion for old JP COats to new JP Coats, as well as to DMC and Anchor.

    Thanks for those links.
    I have a lot of very, very old floss of different makes that came from my Grandmother that I may be able to finally match up with current numbers.

    Old J&P Coats floss

    You have been most helpful with converting old J&P Coats floss to DMC, however I have many skeins that are not on the chart supplied by Needlework FAQ. #11 of that chart only goes to 275. I have 36 skeins between 102 and 275 not on that chart.

    The latest conversion chart of "new" numbers I have found is dated 12/92 and goes up to 8999. I have about 25 not on that chart and some above 9000.

    Help! There must be more up-to-date charts somewhere. If anyone has run across one, please let me know where to find it.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
