The number of the red is Dimensions/Sunset Red 13019 which supposedly converts to DMC 304 or Anchor 19. I had both of those and they aren't even close. I think the problem is that this is a very old kit (1996) and either the color has faded or the colors were different back in the 90's. All the colors in the kit are more subdued than their contemporary counterparts. The colors today are more jewel toned than the dustier "country" colors of yore. My solution.....I bid on yet another kit on ebay. While I was waiting for that auction to end ebay sent me a message telling me there was a buy-it now kit for $14. The Mister convinced me I was stupid not to buy the sure thing so I did. Then the next day I won the auction for $6.99. So... now I'll have 4 of these kits. Running out of thread will NO longer be an option. Jeesh. The things you do.
Thanks for all the offers of help yesterday. You guys are the bestest!
