For the price, a kit such as this is a great start for any beginning sewer, I'm sure. However, when I received the package and took a look at it, I was quite shocked to see just how not good it was. The thread on the spools and even a couple of the bobbins was frayed and cut with loose ends coming out. There were also a few with weird, plastic bumps poking out of them that I can only imagine is some weird defect of the spool.
Either way, I returned it very easily with no hassle. You could always take the thread off the cheap spools and put them on new ones, but who really wants to go through such a tedious task when even the thread felt a little cheap and honestly, there isn't a lot of it? I was hoping for good quality at a decent price but it seems you just can't cut corners. Other than that, the packaging was nice, only a slight delay in the shipping but nothing extreme (just a couple extra days of waiting), and the rest of it seemed to be in pretty good shape. The scissors were actually a bit bigger than pictured (or so I thought) so that was nice. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking to score a good deal out of this cause it really isn't worth the money.
