The EZ Stitch Sampler kit will teach you hand-stitching, the root of all sewing techniques.  Twelve basic hand sewing stitches are taught using three detailed samplers and independent projects.  The instructions and sampler stitch patterns are colored coded to assist you in positioning the needle properly.  It is printed on 100% cotton.  Its a wonderful way to develop hand-eye coordination, a big plus to have when sewing.
