      I would really like to stitch The Smith Sampler (by The Scarlett House) in HDF silks. Has anyone done this conversion? There is a DMC list, so I could probably start with that. But if I don’t have to reinvent the wheel… thank you!

      I very well might be interested also.

      My only concern is the statement by the designer that the dmc colors listed may not be an accurate conversion. Perhaps something can be done looking at the dmc, silks, and a photo of the sampler.

      There are some good photos on Instagram at #smithsampler that might be helpful.

      I can’t remember if this is one I kitted up with the called for silks before Vikki made her reappearance or not. If I did, I do have the new DMC color card.

      I’ll go look.

      Nope. That one is on the short list to kit but hasn’t made it yet.

      I would love an HDF conversion for this sampler, too!

      The DMC seemed way off to me after seeing it stitched in the called for threads. It is bright and also nothing like the photo shown of the sampler online. The DMC conversion seemed muted and just off. I would eyeball it from the called for silks and perhaps addi a variegated HDF or two. Even eyeballing it from the online photos of the Dinky Dyes, Belle Soie, and Gloriana colors would give a beautiful result that would be better than the DMC conversion. But, in my case, I am not rigidly bound by the called for DMC color conversion and would change some of them anyway if I were going to stitch it with DMC threads.

      That’s good advice Stitcher Vix. I’d done the DMC and I know people using it but I didn’t look at the called for colors since the DMC was asked for….
