I haven’t yet used the kit as I bought it as an activity to share during school holiday with my granddaughter.
The kit was packed well and everything needed is included. I must say I am finding it difficult to resist starting the project. I have wanted to have a go at this for some time but face to face courses are expensive. This kit is very affordable and good value.
Although I have done bookbinding before, I had not done anything with Coptic Stitch binding. I saw this kit advertised and thought it would be simpler to work from a kit to get me started. This was successful. I found the prepared materials very good and the instructions easy to follow. Everything worked well and I am pleased with the results.
