New 35? DMC floss colors
Are they available for purchase yet? I have no idea as to how long it takes for DMC to send out to distributors.....

They are coming! We don't have an exact date yet per our distributor but they expect the arrival of them to be soon and once they have them, we will make them all available on here for you guys :) Trust me, we are just as frustrated as you guys are with not having a roll out date for them but the information we got from our distributor sounds like it's going to be soon!

Cannot believe that DMC started numbering from 1 to 35. My thinking is that they eventually may end up conflicting with the variegated numbers. I have some of those with numbers in the 50 to 115. They have numbers from 3078 up to 3300 that still haven't been used.

Thanks Kristi! While my patterns don’t have any of the new DMC flosses, I like to have them on hand for the time when eventually patterns do call for those colors.

I think we all have pretty much resigned ourselves to the fact that DMC's numbering has never made sense and never will.
For an international company, they seem to have had the idea, at least through four or five generations of my family, to recognize themselves as havingna great product....and the heck with everything else! I keep trying to adopt a laissez-faire attitude toward their numbering, but, no luck.

I agree. I’ve also met up with many large companies and/or organizations run by a lot of smart people that don’t have an ounce of common sense.
