Fantastic kits
Friday, 22 October 2021  |  Audrey

Received my three kits and all are great. Finished this one and my only minor problem was that there was not enough thread supplied to finish the kit. I was able to delve into my stash, but someone just starting out would not be able to do that. Excellent dispatch.

These stones are perfect. Have heard that we won’t be able to get Swarovski any more so getting my supply.
