First of all there is a DVD that comes with these templates. You MUST have a computer to watch the DVD. If you try to watch it on just a regular DVD, you will get a "video codec ... (see full review)error". Second, if you buy these templates individually, I found them to cost $5.33 each and, since there are 6 of them in this set, that would cost you over $30 as opposed to HSN's price of $19.95. Third, you also get two pages of "artwork" to print which cover birthdays, thank you, thinking of you, sympathy, and Christmas. Also included is a list of the exact materials to buy if you want to duplicate the cards shown on the DVD (there are 35 of them!) Templates are super easy to use and just plain fun!!

There is an extra tatting needle in the set, and a threader, and the book, and I am well-pleased with the set, but the book itself? - I sat here and learned to needle tat last nig ... (see full review)ht. I fully recommend you read ALL the way through each exercise, BEFORE attempting it, however, because as an accomplished shuttle-tatter, I found the instructions themselves to be a bit wanting... For example, the author doesn't tell you until the END of the exercise that one absolutely MUST cut the thread away from the ball of thread in order to do rings and spaces. So, it took me about an extra hour of my precious time to try to figure out where SHE went wrong because in the beginning it suggested to cut the string from the ball, but did not explain one cant form a ring without doing that, and did not show how to form a ring if one doesn't use a cut thread, which can be done. IN fact, I created a way, trying to accomplish what she failed to share initially. Not great writing. Cute patterns though, a

I purchased this book after one of my knit groups raved about it. I rarely buy a book without looking at it first. I should have stuck to that rule. Someone else might like it. In ... (see full review) my opinion you can find nicer patterns free on the Internet. I've since been told that it has many mistakes in the patterns as well . My biggest pet peeve! So if you are thinking about ordering, do the research . The paper it's printed on is cheap as well. The value and quality aren't there for me.

If you ordered this and it didn't work for the first time.. please give it another try...
