I purchased this for my seven year old granddaughter who I had taught to sew around ages four and five. She was working on an old machine with issues and never lost her patience. T ... (see full review)ime to reward that sewer! It's a great machine! She had it out of the box and sewing on a quilt top and freaking out because it was a Hello Kitty machine. I have owned many Janomes, they have been quality machines. I'm sure this will suit my young sewer until she reaches her tween years. BTW her mother said it was a great machine and sews on it also.
I should have done more reviews on the Janome machines before buying this for my daughter. The sewing machine has been used 3 times. The bobbin jumps in the case, the thread spoo ... (see full review)l jumps on the thread pin, spinning like crazy and tossing thread everywhere. This happens 3 to 4 stitches in every time we try to make a stitch! From the reviews and forums about the Janome sewing machines, everyone seems to be told it is "user error" that "broke" the machine. It is very disappointing to have a company not own up to a mistake in manufacturing. Wasted money and a first time sewer now hates sewing... thanks for nothing Janome. Oh, HSN, you really should have a "0" star. This machine has performed worse than "poor".
Great value for everything you get in the tub. I'm happy with my choice. You get 6000 beads and at least 6 different plates to make designs and instructions. I will also use the b ... (see full review)eads in some of my jewelry projects.
I like each book, I really like the cat book. Each book gives me hours of fun. The paper is thick enough to use water paint and markers if I choose to. The pages are perforated whi ...

I thought the kit was gorgeous in the case. My daughter loves artsy things so I got this for her for Christmas to try out. The final product is also very pretty. However, it mak ... (see full review)es a huge mess while putting it together, and the final plaster crackles and falls off of the flower pieces quickly and way too easily. They still do look nice, but it takes away from the quality of the product.
Super nice gift for my granddaughter! My 30 yr old daughter already loves doing Perler bead patterns off of Pintrest! Gave this for a granddaughter, but her dad is actually tryin ... (see full review)g it out!!!! Great gift idea! Thank you HSN for flex play for the Holidays! Would highly recommend!

THIS IS A WONDERFUL SET. I BROUGHT THIS FOR MY 5 YEAR OLD GREAT GRANDSON. HE LOVES MAKING DESIGNS IN HIS PLAY DOUGH, AND I HAVE CAUGHT HIM TRYING TO ROLL IT OUT LIKE A PIE. THE PRI ... (see full review)CE IS WONDERFUL AND IT IS VERY ARTISTIC FOR A 5 YEAR OLD.
While its a cute little wooden guitar, one fret was completely MISSING, (not even in the package as though it fell out during shipping... and I thought it a bit odd that the manufa ... (see full review)cturer put steel strings on such a tiny guitar, instead of gut strings. Hurts little fingers, and is a danger if they child tightens the strings too tightly- zing! Slap! Broken string, sliced face or arm or torso. Dangerous IMO. The action is way too high to teach a child to play the guitar on as well. However, in spite of all the negative, it has a cute little sound, surprisingly, for a wooden instrument of this nature. Be aware that one should likely open-tune it to the lowest possible octave/chord, as the steel strings will tend to pull the top off the little guitar if tuned to a higher octave and left strung. Also, when tuning, expect the strings to slip out of tune several times as they stretch, and re-tune at least a dozen times over the course of a day or two. I would have given it another
This set is very well made and presented in a box such that the finished airplanes can easily be stored (if not hung from the ceiling of my grandson's bedroom-ha!).This particular ... (see full review)kit gives him the freedom to express himself in how he decorates the planes, which I'm a firm believer that ANY gift I give my grandchildren will NOT be video game, but rather something that will challenge their imagination as well as hone their skills.VERY GOOD CHOICE FOR AGES 10 and up
Unless you are looking for a Photo Album for $19.95, There are no drawing utensils as described......only picture slot pages (10) . I got two and they are BOTH going back right aw ... (see full review)ay. What a disappointment. Hope everything else I ordered comes out right.
Making this little quilt was a lot of fun! I am an experienced sewer and I honestly thought I'd be bored, but I wasn't.
The colors are brilliant and it was nice being able to pic ... (see full review)k my own pattern. I only have one semi-negative review. The material, although easy to work with, is a bit flimsy. The quilt looks beautiful all done up, and it looks great draped over the back of my mocha colored sofa, but it is NOT for real warmth. I sewed it to a piece of fleece the same size and contrasting color and now it's quite warm.
Everything you need is right in the package. Since there is no need for a scissor or needle, it's a great project for a child. This is not to say that an adult with or without sewing experience won't enjoy it.
