I do prefer DMC to Anchor but have also bought a lot of Venus threads as they are cheaper in France - but still twice the price the UK!

Each payday I order 200 DMC skeins for kitting up all my large projects and I think Louise must be starting to wonder what I'm doing with them all to need so many!

I never had the issues Lenne was describing, of Anchor floss knotting up more than DMC and such.
