Yay! I finally figured out how I am going to keep track of my thread. Since the spool cone doesn't have markings and once you take off the wrapper, you could be out of luck in trying to figure out what thread you have.
So I made a chart in Excel. I have the Item number (for re-ordering), color description, my own thread code, what I do have in stock and a column for how many I want to order the next time. As I use them up, I'll be able to figure out my "supply and demand" needs. :)
The Thread Code is my own system, my way of being able to tell what's what after I take off the wrapper. Even though I don't have ALL the threads they offer, I gave them each a number. Then I wrote it inside of the spool.
You can see on the Excel chart that #14 is Honey.
#24 is Green Tea - it doesn't look like ANYTHING on their webpage and I'm a little disappointed in that spool.
It looked so yummy on their webpage! :P In fact the light green on the pastel set looks more like their picture of green tea. I'm only bothered because I ordered 2 spools of green tea! :P
Now I just hope the sharpie ink doesn't wear off as the spools get used up. I'll be in big trouble then! ;)
