If you’ve been stitching a while it can be easy to lose track of what floss you have, and which brands. Get organized by tracking your floss inventory with these printable PDF sheets. Includes a full list of DMC six-strand cotton floss, DMC colour substitutions in case you have floss with the old colour numbers, and extra sheets to list brands other than DMC. The DMC inventory sheets include the newly released colours (1-35), and are for the six-strand cotton embroidery floss (they do not list variegated, satin, metallic, or other specialty flosses). More details of what exactly is included is in the “Tracker details” tab below.

Have you ever had so many projects on the go that you lose track of which ones you’ve kitted up, when you started each project, or whether you’ve already ordered materials? Now you can keep organized like a boss with this PDF stitching project tracker. Track the hours you’ve stitched, materials, finishing and gifting details and more. This set of tracking sheets includes 10 pattern tracking sheets, and 10 photograph sheets for your WIP and finish photos. There are even spaces on the pattern tracker to record how many drinks you’ve downed while trying to finish a stitching project, or how many times it caused you to swear (if you’re in a love-hate relationship with your project). You can even track how many times the frog came to visit (how many errors you had to rip out), and see if there’s any correlation between that and the amount of drinking or swearing that happened…. 😂 More details about what’s included on the tracking sheets are in the “tracker details” tab below.
It’s every stitcher’s life — at some point you realize that your stitching stash is so disorganized and expansive that you don’t even know what you have anymore. Use this printable PDF stitching planner to track your cross stitch and hand embroidery projects, materials, resources, and save your sanity like a boss. From project tracker pages to floss inventory sheets to resources like legal free patterns and stitchy organization apps, this 42-page stitching planner will restore order to your hobby (and likely help you rediscover a lot of materials and projects you didn’t remember you had).

This list helped me get my threads organized but i would like to see it updated with all the retired metallics. I would also like to see all the new numbers added on to it.
Dana Batho –
Hi Teresa, I’m glad it helped you! If they’re retired they won’t be in my floss chart (my physical DMC chart I own), which is where all the current floss numbers came from. And it is up to date with all the current flosses, it only contains the regular flosses, not any of the specialty threads like Étoile, Diamant, etc. Ones that you may have that aren’t listed such as retired flosses, different brands, etc can be written down in the blank sections, that’s why there are blank areas. 🙂

Great idea. I’ve already begun using it, and it’s ever so helpful.

So glad you’re enjoying it Sharon! 🙂

Exactly what I was looking for. I love the floral bit in the corner. Currently cataloging all my threads, of which I have tons 🙂 Only wee tiny issue I have found is no space for #797.

So glad you love the floss tracker Shel-Leanne! And I’m so sorry it’s missing 797, I pulled the list of DMC threads from their site, so I’m not sure why that one got missed (there are I believe 500 colours in their range now). There is extra space for “miscellaneous” threads, so you could always add it there (and add a little note to the side of the main DMC page so you know you have some 797 listed on another page). I’m glad you’re finding it helpful for getting organized though! 🙂
Dana Batho –
Hi Shel-Leanne! I just wanted to let you know I updated the floss tracker sheets fixing the error of DMC 797, I’m sending the updated version to you shortly. 🙂

I only needed the floss tracker – the other things in the project tracker and full stitching planner seemed a bit much for a beginner like me – but I’ve been surprised at how quickly my floss is adding up! This is a GREAT and VERY easy way to keep track of everything, since I don’t really know how to organize it just yet! (And the style is so pretty!)
I highly recommend it!

So glad it’s helpful for you Rachel, thanks for your review! 🙂

This is a great stitching aid. I will enjoy keeping track of my stitching in it. I wish I had had one years ago…but it is never too late to start. The various pages are helpful, easy to read and understand, and laid out well. It will be a little work to get it started but it will be fun as it is stitching related!!! For anyone who likes to record all your stitching, catalogue your fabrics and threads and keep track of favourite shops etc it is a must. Love it! Helen

I’m so glad you like it Helen, thanks for your review! 🙂 Just for anyone reading this review, the full stitching planner has the fabric pages, shop pages, etc, the floss inventory tracker is just for your floss stash. 🙂
