I was in my local Joann's Fabric Store on July 22, with a friend and spotted this display of Anchor Floss on spools. It was just being put up so it is not complete. I was intrigued by this and purchased a spool to compare with Anchor floss I have at home. I purchased color 0336.
The display is very nice and it appears it will have all the anchor colors using the same numbers on the skeins. There is a handy DMC to Anchor conversion chart on the display rack.
- Desire to support local needlework shops (LNS) - if there is one.
- Storage (will I need a new system if I use spools?)
- Cost (spool has more on it for the same or less amount of money)
- Ease of obtaining (Anchor floss may not be available at my LNS)
