I bought several of these kits and think they are a good way to get folk into crafting. The kit kept me busy for a couple of nights. The most difficult bit I found was the cutting out. When finished they are lovely and just right to brighten up a winter jumper.
Great kit with easy to follow instructions and everything you need. If you are a beginner it is all sorted for you so makes a great gift. Also a nice little treat for yourself or something to make to give away.
This is the first time I have attempted weaving on a loom (or anything crafty for that matter) and this kit was the perfect starting point! Has everything you need - would highly recommend for anyone looking to start :)
This is the 4th felting kit I have bought from Hawthorn and as ever I am delighted with it. Instructions so clear and easy to follow. I already have my eye on another kit (ginger & white cat) to make as a present.
The kit arrived in lovely packaging and was very impressed with how it’s was boxed. The quality looks great and the instructions sound simple and easy to follow. I’m looking forward starting it soon and hopefully buying even more!
Bought as a gift for someone whose always misplacing her needles She is very pleased with the needle minder and the lol good on her work
She is lovely and much easier to do than I thought. I have thought about trying felting for a while and watching your videos helped a lot.
As a beginner this kit was brilliant for me - everything you need including needle and threads, hoop and material and so interesting with a range of stitches. Just bring your own scissors. Clear, colour coded 'pattern' to follow and excellent explanation of the different embroidery stitches. Even an explanation of how to turn it into a picture to hang with no other materials needed. Many thanks.
Really pleased with the black cat, the kit was excellent and included everything to complete the embroidery. I hope to make it into a cushion to give to a cat loving friend
I love my new needle minder, it's super cute and the magnet is very strong so the needles aren't going anywhere, so happy with the purchase!
Bought one for a friend and I for myself. Love it
and so does my husband as he not going to find my needles when he sits down 🤣
Another great cross stitch kit. Love that it’s straightforward to complete. I have recently finished ‘Winter trees’ too. Two more to go. Excellent company. Prompt dispatch of order.
I have never used a hoop stand before and it is absolutely brilliant.I love the way that you can turn it In different directions when stitching in a curve.Wouldn’t be without it now I’ve tried it
A lovely, effective design and comes with easy to follow instructions and everything needed. I really enjoyed doing it and it's ready to display. The order arrived very quickly and beautifully packaged. Thank you Hawthorn.
Very pleased with my recent purchase. A lovely quality embroidery hoop. It was despatched very quickly and arrived well packaged in eco friendly packaging. Thanks
