i have been a hopebroidery subscriber since August 2018. hope prepares the boxes with absolute love and thoughtfulness. you really couldn't ask for a better subscription to learn embroidery. hope explains everything you need to know in the tutorial videos and provides a PDF with a diagram of each stitch we'll be using. the diagram is great because after a few months you can use it as a test of what you've learned. don't remember chain stitch? watch the tutorial! the box has everything you need. you won't be running to the craft store because you forgot that one color you needed. you have it. hope sent it to you. you will love your hopebroidery box!!
