This website is the creation of Krisztina, a woman that lives “in a beautiful and wild part of Europe” (her words). When it was mentioned to me in passing by a fellow stitcher, I was certainly intrigued. When I went to the site itself to check it out, I was enthralled.

On a regular basis, there is a post (on her website, Facebook, and Instagram) of a picture with six DMC colors pulled from it. For example, here are a few recent ones:

Not only are these beautiful eye candy, they are certainly a source of inspiration for me as a designer. Numerable color palettes just waiting to be brought to life.

When you click on any picture, you are brought to a page with more details, including various thread conversions and suggestions of palettes with similar colors.

She recently announced a new edition to her website – the Palette Generator. You put in a DMC number and you will then be shown all sorts of color options: monochromatic color schemes, complementary color schemes, triadic and tetradic color schemes – a whole color theory lesson, in fact. Give it a try using your favorite DMC color.

It is absolutely fantastic to have this website as a stitcher. In many ways, DMC colors and numbers are a common language for so many of us, not only stitchers, but fabric and thread dyers as well. Krisztina has given us such a gift with this website.

Go check it out and follow her on social media!
