    The presentation is lovely, and the contents just as they should be and of the finest quality. But most impressive of all are the instructions. These are often difficult to do and so many are difficult to follow, but these are crystal clear and the detail just right. Fantastic kit!

    Everything about the kit is beautiful: the lovely box tied with ribbon, the best-quality contents and the instructions laid out clearly with excellent diagrams in a booklet. I just hope that I can do it justice! Thanks, Sara

    This is my third kit from Well Embroidered and they’ve all been of exceptionally high quality. Arriving in a pretty box tied with a satin ribbon, they are a delight to receive with comprehensive instructions and beautiful components. I am looking forward to starting this gorgeous flamingo over Easter . Thank you, Sara.

    Just finished this beautiful kit.
    Loved everything about it, just looking at the way it is presented makes you realise just how special it is.
    The instructions were so clear and easy to follow and plenty of everything you need to complete the project.
    Just looking forward getting it framed and on display in my craft room now.
    Thank you.
