This loom makes my knitting look like an experienced knitter rather than the beginner I am. So easily the stitches are even and the gauge remains constant. The accompanying DVDs ... (see full review)explain the "how-to" very throughly. I have even visited their website and found wonderful patterns to create my next projects. After completing the current scarf and hat I am planning on making a jacket (the pattern is included!). I would never have dreamed of making such a large project but I am confident it will look spectacular with the knitting board!
When I received this CD it was not plastic wrapped and would not load in my new computer so I tried my old vista and it would try to load but would freeze my screen. The other CD ... (see full review)that I had also bought loaded with no problems. I will defiantly be asking for my money back. I have gotten better patterns then what is listed on this CD and they were free patterns. I have been embroidering by machine for 3 years and have seen a lot of designs on the internet and they are just a lot better then this.
I got this CD hoping to be able to learn how to use the sewing machine. Wrong Call. I find it is extremely hard to find a good self taught CD or access useful information to learn ... (see full review)how to operate the embrodiery machine. I suggest anyone such as myself with limited internet experience avoid purchasing the machine. Looks easy, great sales pitch but I have had my machine 2 years and have accomplished absolutely nothing with the tutorials, on-line help and reading the documents that came with it. So very disgusted with the idea I BLEW $799.00 for a user Unfriendly Machine.
CD might be best if used exclusively for machine is represents as there is no CD available for the Singer Futura Quartet.
Lesson Learned- Buy local and get the training!
I guess I must have looked at too many Anna Griffin pages before I purchased this book. It's not a bad selection of scrapbook pages, they just don't POP! I am sure that you will f ...

From the comments of my 11 year old "artsy" daughter for whom I made this purchase: "I look at this book a lot! It provides a lot of different doodle techniques and has given me ... (see full review)ideas when I was looking for a way of expressing myself but couldn't think of one quickly...." (From my/her mom's point of view: it expanded her doodle "habits" and I see a lot more "flair" and variation in the way she draws/writes/doodles ALL around the house!)
I purchased this for may 11 year old "artsy" daughter. It provided her with lots of ideas to expand her horizons with regard to learning new avenues to "capture" moments in time/e ...

In her own words, the book gave her "inspiration to create different things, using different materials - love it!!"

I am a knitting beginner. After scanning this book, there are many answers to my questions. I have no one to answer my knitting questions and this is just what I need. I was surpri ... (see full review)sed to receive it so quickly.

I was looking forward to receiving this craft book. I love making new craft projects and was anxiously wanted to receive this book. Once I received it, I was very shocked and disa ... (see full review)ppointed. Why is the book printed with ORANGE and BLACK words? At least for me, it is hard to see/read the words that are printed in ORANGE! This purchase was a disaster not worth wasting more money to return it. HSN customers should have been told that the words in this book are printed in ORANGE!!
This is the best book with all kinds of techniques for beginners with loom knitting. I have taught myself so much and can't wait to loom some fabulous gifts for family and friends ... (see full review). I have been a knitter for over 40 years, but I love this book and loom knitting. Highly recommend.
I just love the designs and color the author uses. Also, you do not have to be an expert beader to learn her design variations. It was great to see the creativity someone else has. ... (see full review) It was very encouraging to not be afraid to try any creations that may come to your mind. It can be endless. Also, the book had some great information on all tools for beading. Thank you.
