I am attempting to find a thread conversion software. I did a search on this site and found one from 2007. I had difficulty finding the pulse ambassador conversion software and finally gave up trying to find it.

I have looked at My Thread Box and wondered if others have tried it and how they liked it and which version you had.

I am spending a great deal of time on my own going through my thread colors and doing this manually, and the design I am trying to convert has many areas of shading I don't want to mess up. Any comments would be welcome. Thanks

Do not, repeat Do not use my thread toolbox the program has potential, but the owners of the company are not there to help you if you have questions.

New colors/numbers are added and old ones no longer available, so why bother with a conversion program.

Most sites that sell machine embroidery thread will have charts.

BYW - Pulse Ambassador no longer supports home machine embroidery formats.

The Floriani thread converter program is great for someone with no other embroidery program. It opens your embroidery file, you see the colors the machine needs and when you click on each color block you the option to change the color and see how it will look. It does allow you to save your newly colored design for later use within their program. It dosn't allow you to save your color choices into your machines format. You have to print out a color chart to take to machine. I use the Pfaff 5D suite because it allows editing of designs. Most conversion charts are only as good as the person who created it unless the Panton color rules are followed. Not all thread compnies have the same number of threads and the Floriani program allows a visual of what the design will be.

I also use the color chart from my 3d /4d I just look at the color because it list all kinds of thread then the name of the color.
I just match as close as i can. It usually turns out really nice.

I bought SewWhatPro!, and I love it. It has instructions on how you can edit the thread charts and include only the colors in your stash. I own less than 10% of the IsaCord colors I guess, so almost any design I get has something that isn't in my stash.

With SewWhatPro! I can open a design, and then change to my Stash thread chart. It picks the closest RGB values and then shows me what colors I should use based only on my thread colors! Then I can re-save the file and load it in my Bernina software, and it tells me which colors by number to select.

It's not very expensive, and it works just as described. The developer has been very helpful when I submitted installation questions as well.
