The kit includes everything you need in order to make a beautiful pillow! The design is printed on heavy short stitch fabric net, so there's no need for an embroidery hoop! That makes the kit easy for beginners as well as elderly folks. Packaged in a durable and reusable cardboard suitcase, so you can easily carry your needlepoint kit with you everywhere you go. The suitcase is also great for imaginary play.
