Errata Sheet for Stars by Tony Minieri
An unknown source posted this on ANG email list many years back. I can't vouch for its veracity. Note many of the problems listed were due to the number of plies recommended. If you didn't use one of Tony's recommended color schemes, this may not apply to you. The Needlepoint Etc. Yahoo Group also posted this information (and a blank form to fill in your colors) with a note that they had no problem with the number of plies and that they were advised to do the sashing as they worked to minimize wear and tear on these areas. If you do this, you have to count very carefully the whole time you work the piece.
page 26 of Vivien Leigh - Do not end off the B-7 as you can carry it to Area 2.
page 27 there are two number 6s in the diagram - the one in the lower left corner should be 5
page 34 of Marlon Brando, step three- I used 4 plies of D-3 for this, as I thought it was too skimpy with only 1 ply.
page 35 - Area 3 - I used 4 plies of D-3 here also.
page 48 - Area 5 of Cary Grant - I used 3 plies of D-2.
page 71 of Ava Gardner - Area 2 - My book says use 4 srands B-11 but that color was not listed on the cover page for this square. I determined that it was supposed to read C-2 by looking at the pictures and the master chart for that square.
page 77 of Humphrey Bogart - I used 2 plies of A-11 for the first step, as again I thought it did not cover well.
page 80 - I used 5 strands of A-9 to get good coverage
no page number - Ingrid Bergman - This was the most difficult to get to look good. Areas 1 and 2 became very thick and it was hard to lay the Neon Rays nicely.
page 84 - Pull the Mistake Stitch tightly to reveal the Smyrna underneath. Mine got buried and I gave up and just left it that way.
page 85 - Do the D-4 stitch after Afrea 6. Then you can carry the thread without a stop and start.
page 88 - Gary Cooper - Page 88 left off B-11 which was required for page 91.
