Making Thread Conversion Easy

art-600If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a million times:

Well, your thread sews great, and the colors are terrific, but converting from the thread I use now will be such a chore.   I’m not sure I want to go through that.

Converting from one thread to another can be a chore, no one denies that.  In the 35 years our parent company, Ensign Emblem, has been in existence,  they have changed thread suppliers several times.   We know the problems that can accompany the thread conversion process and the time that it can consume.  That’s why, when EnMart was formed, we all agreed that we had to supply the tools for conversion and make the whole process of  conversion from another brand of thread to Iris thread as simple and painless as it can be.

The best way we could find to make the thread conversion process painless was to create an online thread conversion engine.  To use this thread converter, all you need is the number of the thread you are currently using.  Simply find that number on the pulldown list under the thread brand and then click search.   You will then be provided with the closest Iris thread match.

All our conversion were done by hand, by experts with over 30 years of experience in matching thread colors.  Our matches are the closest we could find and, if we couldn’t find a match that met our specifications, we’ll tell you that too.  Our goal is not to sell you any old thread and hope it will work.

If you’re currently using Rayon and would like to convert to Iris Smooth ‘N Silky Rayon, we can help you there as well.  The Rayon to Rayon conversion chart is not currently online, but we do have a paper version that can be used.  If you are interested in switching to Iris Rayon, simply contact us and we’ll be glad to help you make the switch.

Our goal is to make your conversion process as simple and painless as possible.  If you need any advice or assistance regarding converting from another thread to Iris thread,  we are ready and eager to help.
