I got a brother PE770 from my boyfriend for this past Christmas and he decided to surprise me by getting a huge bag of assorted colors of embroidery thread off of eBay. Which I absolutely loved bc it had over 100 spools. Problem is there is no brand name on them, just the code for the colors, and I can not seem to find out what brand it is to find a color chart! I want to do a few patterns and keep the colors as close as possible so I went searching for a color conversion chart but I can not figure out this darn brand! All the numbers are in the 2000 range, nothing below 2000 or above 2999. Any ideas?? Or site I could go to to to try to figure it out? He did contact the seller but of course no response. All the spools are brand new sealed in plastic and have a sticker with the color code, polyester thread and 500m. Help!

Does this help?  If not, try searching for embroidery machine thread color conversion chart and check colors against numbers.  Good luck!
