I've really enjoyed making this one as a present for my granddaughter who loves dinosaurs. It's great to add your own touches to make it more personal.
Hand injury means I'm looking for a craft I can do mostly with one hand. A friend recommended this stand as it's very adjustable. I did need help to put it together, but it's meant that I can do some one-handed black work whilst I am healing!
I absolutely love my stand. It is so much more than expected. I 100% fully recommend this stand. When I first opened it I wasn’t sure but it fulfills all my needs and more. I use mine on a table and it is great.
This sweet Border Collie was my first 3-D needle felting project, and second needle felting attempt, ever. The instructions were superb, and I am delighted with how it came out. (I modeled the markings after my own dog.) I will use this again AND I am truly addicted to needle felting now! Thank you for a wonderful kit to get me started!
Really lovely little kit - instructions are really clear and perfect for a beginner. Very pleased with the finished product!
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! 😍 ❤️
