I consider myself to be an intelligent person. The 16 word instructions (of that, 3 words were "the") is just wrong. It may be "Easy to Use" if your instructions were a little more in depth. I would love to rate this product but I haven't been able to figure out how to use it. Did you get feedback from the public before your packaging was completed? They probably would have told you to be more specific.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Liz, we wish you'd left your email address so we could contact you! There should have been a 4 page instruction booklet included with this product - 7 detailed steps and lots of other information about how to use the kit. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you see this reply so I can send it to you!
The product permits any pattern, but comes with several durable cardboard sample patterns. The colorful, thick laces are very durable, too. There are many colors, and there are 2 of each color to permit longer patterns.The "punch pen" isn't intuitive to use. [...] I can't remember how it is supposed to work. I keep getting the pen caught on the thread and not knowing how to pull the thread out without undoing the stitch. But it's still possible to punch the thread through without stringing the punch pen.I would like to use this product for teaching strokes for writing Chinese characters (like ABC sampler cross stitch of old), but I'm still working on developing patterns.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: WOW! Chinese characters would be amazing! If you'd like to share the end result, please send an image to email@example.com. In the meantime, we'll review your feedback about the punch pen...
