    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.
