New Member/thread color questions

Hello all
New here to pictoweave. Wondering if anyone could help me to
find RGB values for Madiera threads. I bought a box of 30 thread colors from Mudhole and I find that Many of these are not on
the Pictoweave lists.
Anyone have suggestions?

Ken,
All the Madeira threads I have been able to get details on have been included.
I have sent several emails to Madeira themselves seeking a complete list, but have had no reply.

This chart lists pantone colors
(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

There are several color chart links here.

You can use the colormap utility to get pretty close by holding the thread up to the screen and sliding the color bars until you get  close match.
See the help file.

It's a good idea to keep any additions & changes you make in a text file somewhere, as any updates will overwrite them.

cheers,
Owen

Just as an addendum to my earlier reply to Ken.

The color-map utility now has the facility to locate the nearest Pantone colour to the one you have chosen.
You can also select pantone numbers directly.

So if you need to add a new thread and you know the Pantone number, you can just enter the details, select the pantone number and you're done.

Alternately, if you have a roll of thread in your hand, you can get the color as close as possible by eye and then ask color-map to "find the nearest pantone" to that colour.
Chances are the real thread colour will be an exact pantone colour, so this should produce pretty accurate results.

cheers
Owen
