Webster's kingfisher starter kit is suitable for beginners. Notice in the picture above the needlework is flat like a running stitch however, the finished side is made up of a series of tiny loops made by punching the needle through the fabric, it leaves a loop every time and it looks and feels like a miniature rug when completed. The kit also contains a booklet of over 17 small design transfers all suitable for beginners. It a really fantastic entry level kit and contains everything you'll need to get started including 8" non slip hoop, green tool, 10 acrylic yarns, fabric, re-usable transfers and instructions. Great hobby, great fun and quick to learn.
