Schwalm Whitework Embroidery Supplies – online resources

More and more local embroidery stores are closing, so people no longer have the opportunity to buy supplies directly. Some people are not familiar with browsing the internet, and even if one is internet savvy, finding embroidery supplies on the internet is not always easy. Lately I have received requests from ladies looking for the required supplies.

Both DMC and Anchor produce coton à broder threads. I cannot see a difference in the quality. In some countries, Anchor is more common, in other countries, such as France, DMC is more common.

Used are different thread weights – No. 30, No. 25, No. 20, and No. 16.


For beginners I recommend Weddigen linen with a thread count of 13.5/cm (34 tpi); it is article No. 160.


However, a linen with a higher thread count is usually used for Schwalm whitework; this is Weddigen linen with a thread count of 16/cm (40 tpi); it is article No. 925 (in the US it is called Legacy linen “Alba Maxima”).


So, to help people trying to find these items, I thought to publish a list of online retailers. While you are shopping online, not only compare prices of supplies, but also consider shipping costs.

This is not a complete list. If you are an online retailer of white coton à broder threads, or if you are an online retailer of Weddigen linen article No. 160 or Weddigen linen article No. 925, and if you want to be included on this list, please email me, and I will add your link to this list.
