Other systems work with photos contrast, and you pick thread colors after the system produces designs; this system is different. Thread colors get selected from a thread set. These are compared to the photo and layered based on their perceived color, which produces smoothly blended designs while achieving exceptional detail.

Already own thread?

Make a custom thread set to use your thread inventory.

By using color and not just contrast, you remove the guesswork, and the system will create designs specifically using your thread colors. The system does the work of matching thread colors to the photo.

The thread colors are similar to paint on a painter's palette. If your image has a blue, you'll need a blue. Without that, the system might use a blueish-green, or, if no color is close enough, it might use no color and leave a void. Also, for this reason, choosing not to use the colors it selects will produce sub-optimal results.

In a custom thread set, if you have more colors, it will have access to more colors. However, you could also give it fewer colors to create a custom effect.

System thread sets are full manufacture sets (except for some fluorescent and variegated).
If you pick your favorite thread manufacturer, you can let the system use a wide range of colors and purchase the ideal ones for your project.

Custom thread sets can be a mix and match of any system threads. 
Make a custom thread set and use just your current inventory. The system works with what you give and creates the design with your threads.
