Truly stunned! The booklet is amazing (as a first timer to needle painting, it will be an integral part in all of my learning!), the pattern is gorgeous, the delivery swift and I  really can't wait to start! Thank you!

My goodness Trish Burr you are so amazing! The packaging was meticulous - The detail in putting these together - what can I say? Right down to the little thank you note/sticker. The quality of the fabric and the printing is amazing! I order online all the time but have never been treated to such loving care! If there were 10 stars I would give it a 10. Thank you!
