    I have found that some kits - 15% about - have thread in different colors than the photo. I usually keep all my spare thread, so if I don't like what the kit contained, I simply substitute. I have run across the same with beaded pieces - photo will show brown beads and black ones are in kit. When the directions specified "root beer" colored beads and I had black, I then called the company (Mill Hill) and explained the situation. If it is their mistake, they will send the proper color to you. Go to top
