Everyone who attended Ackworth2008 was totally charmed by Leon Conrad, his knowledge, his experience and his expert tuition. Sadly, he is no longer practising and so his early kits are something of a rarity. Unlike some kits, this comes with quality linen not Aida, which is why it is a little more expensive. It is magnificently equipped with wonderful metallic threads and Mill Hill Beads. Although marked for beginner and intermediate stitchers, you will be able to create quite a show of skills to display. I am sorry this kit is now sold.
