Like many people I usually prefer to buy my own supplies, but I couldn't
resist this kit! What I'm wondering is, does anyone know this brand and
what kind of floss is used in their kits? Every number in the floss key
begins with 6, and the numbers don't seem to fit either DMC, Anchor or
(according to my conversion charts) JP Coats. Maybe the manufacturers
use their own numbering?
The floss seems reasonable quality; I've looked at four or five colours
so far with my DMC shade card, and think I could probably match them if
I run out of thread. It would make it a *very* expensive buy if I throw
out all the kit floss... :-( Opinions, please?
JCA, Inc. (Johnson Creative Art) is located at 38 Scales Lane, Townsend, MA
01469-1094, phone (978)597-8794. They have a Customer Service Dept. which I
called once and I found the person I spoke to very friendly and knowledgeable.
If you run out of floss I am sure they can send you what you need. JCA bought
the Elsa William name when she retired. Elsa William is deceased. Hope this

Thanks, Carol, and everyone else who replied, for your comments. I don't
think, though, that this time I'm going to throw out the floss... the
kit cost 35 pounds (about $56) and there's no way I'm going to pay that
kind of money for a chart and a piece of fabric!
The design is such that I don't think it will really matter if dye lots
differ (lots of flowers and stems, etc), so I will plug on and see what
Throw out floss????? Never!!! Even el-cheapo floss can be used to
make tassels and cording.
