This is the cutest of your kits so far. Although I have yet to start it, it's up to your usual brilliant standard, both as a kit and the speedy delivery. It makes a fab gift, either as the kit itself, or as the completed turtle.
Another great kit from Hawthorn. Fast delivery, lovely packaging and all you need to complete a little work of art. The bright, happy colours make it a joy to work on.
Beautiful kit with everything needed to complete it. Super clear colour and black and white charts. Prompt delivery and the pretty tissue paper made it feel like unwrapping a gift. May just have to collect the other seasonal trees!
Love this little needle minder, bright colours to cheer me up and nice and strong magnet
Even tho' I had to undo a few bits which I felt looked too untidy. I sewed a big safety pin on the back and fixed it to a handbag. Well chuffed I am!
Am very pleased with my kit. Haven’t done any sewing for years although I was a prolific quilter and knitter in my time. It is very calming. The instructions are great and I would recommend this as a good buy. Aiming to maybe make this into a little cushion for my granddaughter who loves all things unicorn.
This needle minder was bought as a gift and to be honest I didn't really think it was necessary. But it is actually a really useful little sewing aid, the magnet always holds the needle in place so I can always find it, & it's cute too.
This kit was so much fun to do. Directions were very easy to understand, there was more than ample thread provided and I was able to complete it just a few days. I have bought the other three seasons and can't wait to hang them all on my wall. Yep, this is much cheaper than going to a therapist!!
I've not done embroidery for years. Decided to have a go. Love these kits as they give you a simple stitch guide. You can follow their example or do your own thing. I've now bought 4 other kits.
I bought a load of hoops to make kits. This hoop was so sturdy and the wood is lovely. The brass screw is great and I can't wait to put a little piece of embroidery in it. It is so elegant and I'm sure anything would look stunning it. Good value and a good range of sizes. I chose a 3" hoop, which is so dinky! 😍 ❤️
I am a beginner in embroidery but found the instructions very clear and the resulting work looks lovely! Generous amount of thread in the pack too so I can continue to practice the different stitches!
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.
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 🤣
