My sister gave me this for Christmas and I received it in the mail today. It's gorgeous! I haven't started yet because I'm practicing with another project. The materials included are absolutely fabulous. The canvas is my more flexible than what I'm currently using and I can't wait to get started. An additional sample of the 3.75 mesh was included and I definitely plan on using it, too. The packaging was great with little extra touches that made it special and handled with care.
