Packed in good quality cellophane bags my kits make lovely presents and you don't spend a fortune on unnecessary postage!

I'm just letting you know...
....about the fabric... The design is worked within a shape and not transfered onto the velvet.
....no hoop is included...I'm sure I don't need to tell you the hoop is NOT included in the kit!! (See Notes Below)
....picture colours may vary... colour reproduction of my pictures depend on your device screen! Likewise my camera and lighting may catch colours differently but with the exceptions of creams looking a bit paler, I work hard to make sure my colours are accurately reproduced in my listings.
.... Instructions are written in ENGLISH... I do NOT offer Digital Downloads for translation and therefore it is up to you to seek your own translation from the written instruction.
.... You will also need the following to complete your decoration (also listed in the instructions)... Pins ; Glue ; Strong/ Upholstery Thread ; A ruler ; Scissors ; A pen ; A hoop/frame
Here's some useful stuff about hoops and frames!
When learning embroidery properly using both hands means that you are free to manipulate the threads. A simple hand held embroidery hoop clamped in a stand is great and a nice cheap way to start.If you are really keen however Elbesse do an excellent one which comes with a standard 10’ hoop. There are two styles; a hoop with a clamp for a table, or one with a base to fit under the leg so that it can be used on your lap. You’ll find them online or any good sewing shop and they should cost under £20 ($29) A word of caution ; If you are buying a Table clamp, make sure the lip of your table edge is square and less than 2 inches deep for the clamp to attach properly. Further details are in my instructions.
Here's some generally useful stuff to know!
Embroidery is not an instantaneous hobby! Your kit materials will complete the design, but you will need other items such as thread to sew on your backing fabric, a frame (already explained), pins and an ironing board, full details of which are described within the kit. I have written this note just in case you plan to take your kit on holiday and are new to sewing of any kind and have not yet had fun acquiring the basics required for the hobby , a list of which can be found in any good sewing book or Internet site prior to starting.
