Got the Creacent tote in chartreuse green. Quality products ample supplies should you make a mistake and cut a piece wrong. Everything ... and I mean everything is included (except the machine). I got started right away but didn’t have a denim needle ... no problem, it’s in the kit. I would rate myself as an advanced beginner/intermediate sewist ... this kit is easy with just enough challenges to keep it interesting. Good opportunity to learn a couple of zipper skills.
I love, love, love the kit. It’s great to have everything you need in one box shipped straight to my door. Everything appears to be high quality and handles well. I do feel like something is missing. There doesn’t seem to be any personal instructions or demo videos. I have tried Seamwork and they have an incredible set of instructional videos and step by step videos. They however are missing the “kit” and only sell pdf patterns. I wish I could combine your kits and with their instructions. Then the world would be a sewers heaven!
