Thank you for posting this.  I am guessing this is kind of a response to my post about being disappointed in many of the Vervaco charts posted here.

I have a fairly large collection of Vervaco kits and while these conversion tables are a start they are far from perfect.  I have one kit that the color name is White and I have matched it to DMC match up is Blanc. I have another kit that says the color name is White and I have matched the floss up with B5200.  On those same kits I they use the name Cream  - one is matched up to DMC 746 and the other kit matches up to DMC 712.  While in both cases the colors are very similar and Vervaco used the same color names the actual DMC color is not the same.  

When I match up original Vervaco threads with DMC threads, I use an true color lamp and first match with a DMC color card..then I go and pull the actual skeins of floss and make sure they really do match the original threads from the kit.

There are 5+ shades of what i would call light green in DMC floss, so a color name means little when it is used as a floss description.  Vervaco purposely uses color names to make it harder to share charts, and they will use the same color name for two different shades of a color in different kits.

I agree. You have to use the DMC shade card, and trust your eye to give you good colors in tonal ranges.  Post time 2015-2-15 03:31
