More on the History of DMC Threads

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Back in June of 2011 I mentioned the Part I of a series on the History of DMC Threads, written by Penny Nickels and posted on the Mr. X. Stitch site.

Part I covers our history from the inception of the company through 1850.

With another June almost upon us, I thought it would be great to post a link to Part II of the series, which features a history of DMC through 1900, and Part III to finish the series of articles.

In Part II, you can see the evolution of the logo, which is really interesting for those who collect vintage DMC items and memorabilia. You’ll also find information on the doyen of embroidery, Therese de Dillmont.

Part III features information on DMC’s extensive collection of needlework from around the world, which is housed at the company headquarters in Mulhouse, France.

Penny did a terrific job giving readers a thorough and accurate history of DMC, and we hope you’ll take a look at her articles.  You can also learn more about the history of DMC on our web site!

    Part II of the history mentions Therese de Dillmonte. I was wondering if there are charts to translate between the DMC numbers in her book and modern DMC numbers? She has some wonderful projects, and it’s really frustrating,

      The DMC numbers shouldn’t have changed but let me take a look into this! Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
