DMC Floss Shortage August 10, 2020 15:44
What's up with our DMC six-stranded embroidery floss? As you can imagine, the global virus crisis has slowed production in all sectors of manufacturing. In addition, deliveries are delaying package arrivals.
Raspberry Lane Crafts is on top of our distributers checking weekly whether their orders from France, the DMC Corp, are arriving. Right now, the latest estimated dates from our distributers are end of September. If that happens, then we won't see fresh supplies here until October.
In coming are some DMC 14-Count AIDA cloth, new Mettler thread sets, and Sweet 'N Petite Charms!
Patience is all we can do right now. Those cross stitch and embroidery projects may remain partly completed for now but we will be in stock in a few months!
Metallic Floss Conversion Chart May 22, 2019 14:39
The eleven original DMC Metallic Floss colors have been re-numbered as part of the Light Effects collection. In this new conversion chart (above) the metallic floss is listed by its old color number. New color numbers in the Light Effects range are listed in the right-hand column. In addition, this chart divides the Metallics into their Light Effects Series including: Jewels, Precious Metals and Pearlescents.
This chart is very valuable for those of us who still have the metallics listed by their old names.

As early as next week I'll be adding about 1/3 of the DMC six-stranded floss and bulk Darice floss spools to my inventory. All the colors needed for Raspberry Lane Crafts cross-stitch patterns will be available - except the metallics in the Magic Butterfly Collection.
If you're a cross-stitcher the magazine Just Cross Stitch June 2015 edition contains my ad on page 33. For those of you buying from a store, it is on sale April 27th. I'm very excited about that!
