SUMMARY- There was no list of what materials one should find in this kit, and I bought it used off ebay. What I got with the kit were three different balls of thread, a couple of flossing loops and four bobbin shuttles - two metal Boyes, and two gray plastic Aero. Can anyone tell me what was supposed to be included in this kit? Please contact me!

I was really pleased with this kit - she covers several advanced techniques pretty well, along with a well detailed explanation on how to reopen a closed ring, and the last join on a snowflake or other round motif. It took me years to figure out how not to twist that last picot. I think this kit is a keeper, and I'll have to keep an eye out for the Beginner's Kit. Her instructions are clear, the test patterns are in both symbolic notation and diagrammed, and her graphics are well thought out. There were a few test tats left in the kit from the previous owner, so I know others were able to follow her instructions as well.
