I am SO impressed with your website, and in particular the way you can see
colours of all linen and thread, and the ability to order the small size cut
of linen. Linen has become very expensive and most of us can't justify (or
afford) the 1/2metre cuts, and yet the new overdyed shades are too tempting!
So thanks for making it possible for me to try them.

Needlepaint Choices: The Needlepaint threads that I have used in my designs have been scarce and hard for me to supply.
I have compared other threads and now have a substitute for the shades. You cannot mix-and-match. The decision needs to be made before you begin stitching. I have chosen the groups of needed new colors. Don't pick single numbers and try to match individual skeins. This is for you to use as a good set of shades to replace in a group. Exchange numbers in a group with a full set of the replacement Rainbow Gallery threads.

These are not individual thread substitutions.
You must substitute the entire color series. Do not mix-and-match. They won't match.
