    Hi all,
    Im interested in starting Cross stitching.. Just want to get a head start.. Here in US, the craft stores like Michaels / Joann will have those kits right? do those kits contain all required needles & threads? Is it a good place to start?

    Any ideas please..

    :)

    hi,

    these two embroidery works are from anchor quick stitch kit embroidery range. Instructions, threads everything is provided with the kit and it is easy to do.
