Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality My 4 year old grand-daughter absolutely loved it, although I must admit I did quite a lot of sewing as well!! 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely present bought for my grand daughter age 5 for Christmas good starter kit for small hands nice size box 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A product that brings together a number of skills My granddaughter was absolutely delighted when I gave her this Sewing Kit -- Although only 5 years old she did everything on her own & was so delighted that she was able to make something useful-- she kept the case to put her sun-glasses in but gave the other articles to members of the family ! ! I have been back looking for more sewing kits but unfortunately none in stock. 23 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not sew easy I was really exited to find this product as our 5 year old grand daughter loves craft and I wanted her to try her hand at basic sewing. Our own daughter had sewing cards when she was young, but I couldn't find those anywhere. This product looked straight forward and there were some interesting things to make, but it was just too difficult for her and she soon lost interest - most unlike her. Hopefully she will have another go when she is a bit older, but not a good buy for a five year old, even one that is good at making things. Looks promising, but doesn't deliver in my view. Disappointed with this one. Would be better as a second sewing kit, with something more basic to do as a lead up to this one. 22 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little sewing kit Bought this as a present and the little girl loved it, a great introduction to sewing. 27 January 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ideal gift for my neice My local store (Canary Wharf) has unfortunately reduced it's toy offering so I went online and ordered the sewing kit which I requested to be delivered to the Stratford store for me to pick up. It was there the following day and I received courtesy text informing me it was ready. As always John Lewis / Waitrose provided near perfect customer service. 25 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lovely kit! I bought this for my daughter age 6. The kit is well designed and has attractive bright colours for young girls. My daughter loves it. However, after some sewing, she found that the long and thick yellow thread a little bit difficult to manage. I replaced it with some colourful soft satin ribbons and problems solved. Overall, it's a lovely kit. 19 July 2011
