Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good kit (or the contents of what would make up a kit) for a beginner?
Thanks in advance,
Annieeg

I like long stitch but have always found kits by trawling through the Internet, checking out craft shops or exhibitions.  There is one company I wouldn't recommend as there was not enough thread supplied and I couldn't buy extra anywhere as most places had stopped stocking it.  Sadly I can't remember the name but they may no longer be in business.
