So I would guess that things with Bucilla and their kits
haven't improved since the original post in 1996?

IIRC Bucilla uses their own color number system and threads,
not DMC or Anchor for their kits. Think cheap imitation floss.
That makes things even worse since you can't just run out
to the LNS or online to order replacements or extra floss.

I've purchased a kit or two from Bucilla, but always pitched
their floss and matched it up with higher quality DMC or
Anchor before beginning work. An expensive way to get just
a chart and fabric which also usually gets replaced, but
sometimes a design just calls to you and you HAVE to have it!

I purchased a VERY expensive kit from a company in the  
Netherlands called Pako. The floss was DMC so was easier
to match up in case of shortfalls. It would have been a
PITA to have to contact the company for extras and for the
price paid, I wouldn't expect to be shortchanged.

I did replace the high-quality Aida with Belfast linen for
the project, adding to the finished cost, but it was a
huge project and was worth the effort.
