I LOVE the DMC cross stitch kits for so many reasons! They come with literally everything you need to start cross stitching.  It even comes with a really great needle, but try not to drop it down your couch!!! (speaking from experience) 

The kit just makes it so simple to start. I was scared to start before because finding an easy pattern and all the supplies seemed just so daunting and I was sure I would buy at least one wrong item.  

But I was very surprised when I grabbed one and that was it. The kit actually had everything I needed and didn’t require me to buy a bunch of other stuff. However, I did grab a different colour and swapped it out to make a more customized first project. 

I can safely say it was super simple to start and now I am hooked! I highly recommend these kits if you are looking to start cross stitching.
