My Thread Box Embroidery Thread Matching Software
$ 79.98 New Out of stock
Features & Specifications

My Thread Box gives you the unique ability to color match most major embroidery thread palettes to alternate colors - this gives you the freedom to choose what thread you wish to use to sew out a design.  It does this by running calculations on the Red/Green/Blue color values of the thread color itself, rather than relying on the manufacturer cross reference table (which are usually incomplete or inaccurate - when they can be found). 

If you have ever tried to hand-match 25 colors on a complex design to 3 or 4 different tables (and usually the cross between the palettes you need does not exist - you have to jump from one to the other to another), then sort through your collection to see if any of the possible alternates are in your personal stash,  you have no doubt came to the conclusion that it is simpler to just go out and buy the recommended thread palette.  Nice for the thread makers, bad for you - would'nt it be nice to just type in the colors you need and have a list printed out for you (including showing the matches that are in your thread stash)?

My Thread Box gives you a good alternative to all that work and time spent - it does it for you!!  It also gives you the ability to find alternates when you do not have the right color for your embroidery design as it also searches within the same palette for a match within tolerances.  

Runs on any PC with Windows95 or better, including both versions of XP (home and pro) - your monitor should be able to display 800x600 resolution (most pc's built in the last 5 to 6 years can do that - if in doubt, check with the people that sold you the pc) - any inkjet or laser printer supported by your version of Windows will work for printing your shopping list.

 Super Helpful
By Lenora
I would recommend this software for everyone. If I don't have the suggested color, it's just so east to open "My Thread Box" and plug in the number and a suggestion is made and it helps speed up the process instead of me having to take the time to pick out a substitute.

 My thread Box
By Jean from Grass Valley, California
This is great, I am able to take the thread brand that my pattern uses and find the maching color with the thread that I use, which is Isadord. It saves time and money.

 Beautiful New Twister Tweed Thread
By Pat from Cumberland, Maryland
Have you ever had a piece of material just grab you right in the middle of your tummy and it said BUY ME? You get an all butterfly feeling? I bought the Twister Tweed not knowing exactly what to expect. I looked and it grabbed me. I could see the many designs that could be made from this gorgeous thread. It has to be one of the best. I highly recommend it for all embroidery. Just beautiful, You will not be disappointed.

 My Thread Box - Buyer Beware
By Mary from Brownsville, Texas
I bought this on line from a different site. It was a special sale price for $89.00 that was to include lifetime updates and 3 tutorial cd's. I was able to download My Thread Box, but have not received the instructions on how to use the life time updates and the 3 cd's. I have emailed the company 2 to 3 times, no response. I tried calling and only got voice mail, no returned calls. So unless you order the cd's for everything, be careful. Customer Service is non existent.

 My Thread Box - No customer service
By Susan
I purchased this software a number of years ago from My thread Box site. When it works, it is great, however, I haven't been able to use it for 2 years not since I cannot get any service from the developer. I have a lifetime update, and am very upset with this situation. My recommendation is to find another program since customer service is of the utmost importance.
