I started dabbling in embroidery a little while back so started with 'cheap' kits to see if I liked it. Having caught the bug and developed my skills a little, I decided to opt for a Paraffle kit as a Christmas present for someone. Wow! They are amazing! Super clear guidance with handy stitch guides that actually make sense, high quality fabric and hoop and beautiful patterns. I enjoyed it so much and I'm hoping they like it!
