What happened to DMC 3771?


OK, here is another weekly update of Spring Ride. She has a face now, and a shoulder too :-) I am almost done now with this page. I just have to add a few small flowers. Hopefully I will finish that next week.

I found it! Here is my photo of Nicole stitching while she was here this weekend - taking one of her very many cell phone breaks. Her boyfriend and her best friend called incessantly... ah, that is right! She is 16!!!! She really stitched quite a lot on Alice in Wonderland. She chose Silkweaver Karma Sparkle lugana for her project. But, I did not get a chance to get a photo of her stitching :-( She went home a bit early today to go home to study for a history exam tomorrow, and we forgot!

Nicole needs a skein of DMC 3771 for this project. We went to two stores, and neither even had a bin for 3771 anymore. Did they change it? Does anyone know? I plan to go through my floss this week and see if I can find her some... but I also figure some stitcher out in our vast world knows the answer to this... 3771 is still on DMC's website... thanks in advance for any help!!

Gosh, is it Sunday night already???!!!

Stitched on today: Started Rabbit's Big Day Exchange project (finally), and Spring Ride

I have an extra skein of 3771 that I'd be happy to send on if she doesn't mind that it's already wound to a plastic bobbin. Drop me a line at sew uni corn at yahoo dot com if interested. :)

Can't wait for pics!

Spring Ride is beautiful. Is it making a difference now she has a face?

I've looked at a couple of UK ONS sites and they are still listing 3771 too so if it has been taken off sale it must have only just happened.

I've been joking about having the phones taken right out of our house when Rowen reaches her teen years - LOL! I remember driving my parents absolutely insane with my hours and hours on the phone.

Spring Ride looks fab! And I'm glad someone's come forward with some 3771. :)

Hi Carol,

3771 is not discontinued. I'd be happy to send as much as you need;)

How great that your neice is stitching too! Looking at your beautiful work makes me sad that I will have to cut back on my stitching!

Dani said...

Your spring ride is coming along nicely. Can't wait to see it when it is all complete.

Hello fellow NHer. I have DMC 3371 (a whole skein) that I can throw in the mail tomorrow if you want it. I buy mine at the AC Moore in the Mall of NH. They have the best selection of DMC floos there and the Michael's on South Willow St here in Manchester is where I but my floss atsince Walmart discountinued it.

Spring ride looks great.
Well a few years ago a few colors got discontunied, but due to them being so often in pieces they decided the colors had to stay. It was like in 2002 or something like that that this happened. Around the time that also 504 came and some other colors, can't remember the numbers anymore sorry.

Plenty of 3371 available round here(I know cos I bought some the other day)....maybe your local stores have a temporary supply problem for some reason? I can't see them discontinuing that one - it's a colour I use a lot!

Spring Ride is coming along beautifully!

Spring Ride is really moving along, nice progress. Nicole looks quite comfy in her chair with stitching and phone, and I'm glad to see from other posts that getting her more 3771 shouldn't be a problem.

That's lovely that you've got your niece stitching!

If you want me to check our local JoAnn store for 3771 just let me know - sounds like you've had a number of other offers.

Your niece looks like a lovely young lady! I'm surprised she was getting phone calls. My DD and her friends are constantly texting each other! LOL

Barb said...

Spring Ride is looking really good. It is such a pretty piece. I love the colors in it. I'd offer you some 3771 but sounds like you have quite a few other offers. Hope your niece keeps stitching.

Hope you can get the mystery of 3771 solved. Isn't 3371 that dark almost black color? Wonder if it's a typo? I can look at the stores here, if you need any. Spring Ride looks fabulous!
