The Golden Fleece
The leader was the Russian manufacturer Golden Fleece. The company offers a wide range of embroidery kits, among which everyone will find an option to their liking. There are women silhouettes, children's drawings, landscapes and animals on sale. High quality eco-friendly material is used in the manufacture of threads. Schemes vary in complexity. Embroidery is available for beginners and professionals.
Buyers note the accuracy of the selected colors, a bright range of shades. The resulting canvas does not curl, all the crosses lie flat. The company regularly pleases consumers with original novelties. Opinions about Golden Fleece products are predominantly positive. The company accepts any claims and complaints regarding the quality of the kits. For a product measuring 16.5 by 21.8 cm, you will have to pay about 670 rubles. The most popular paintings: 'Lighthouse', 'Bullfinches', 'Bouquet of white roses'.
The American firm appeared more than 30 years ago. She never ceases to delight craftswomen all over the world with chic embroidery kits. Paintings do not deteriorate over time, do not lose shape and color. Each pattern is developed by a team of professionals within a few weeks. The selection of embroidery is very good. All options are bright with an interesting plot. Outwardly, they resemble art paintings. Almost no one has such elaboration of details.
They praise high-quality canvas, convenient organizer, strong threads. I want to look at realistic images all the time. They look fabulous. The sets of this company are one of the most expensive in stores. The prices on the websites go through the roof for 5000 rubles. Some embroideries are quite complex and cost a lot of effort. Simple work will take from 1 to 3 months. Pros: convenient three-color scheme, realistic pictures, brightness of tones.
The firm 'Riolis' produces various goods for needlework and produces original kits for cross stitching. She began her work in 1996. The manufacturer was one of the first to produce convenient and high-quality products for needlewomen with patterns and the necessary threads. Today, embroidery is sold by wholesale and retail. The assortment includes drawings of animals, vegetables, icons, people and nature. Models for children are on sale. The number of threads is optimal for each painting. The set includes a clear scheme and a high quality needle. The finished canvas looks expensive and realistic.
Gift sets are great as a presentation. True, not everyone likes to embroider with wool. Buyers note that the black-and-white scheme is more convenient than the color one presented in the Riolis sets. The most important advantages are a variety of subjects, high-quality materials, excellent results, and a good canvas. The price for the set starts from 95 rubles (16 by 13 cm).
The Belgian brand Vervaco is well known among experienced embroiderers. The firm offers a decent selection of drawings and produces collections by subject. The assortment includes kits of varying complexity. There are very simple pictures for beginners, masterpiece panoramas, sets for decorating with patterns of pillows and clothes. Kits include sun-fade French yarns. They praise bright shades and dense canvas.
Monochrome paintings are especially popular, which are not cheap. Wedding and children's paintings are often taken. According to the proposed patterns, you can embroider with other threads. For some buyers, the price of the kits seems overpriced. Thus, Vervaco is suitable for financially wealthy needlewomen above the average.
The manufacturer of the Snow White sets delights consumers with a wide variety of subjects. The sketches presented look pretty impressive. The threads are made from Aida 14 canvas. Long-fiber cotton and permanent dye were used in their production. The shade transitions are smooth. The set includes fabric that perfectly retains its shape. There are always enough threads. The instruction contains a color scheme. There is no markup on the canvas.
In the network you can find the manufacturer's online store, where there are favorable discounts. In general, reviews of Snow White products are positive. Some images are difficult to embroider. The poorly designed scheme is frustrating. The kits of the company are chosen for reasonable prices and a complete set of materials. Especially popular are children's sets: 'Cat with a bouquet', 'Couple', 'Hello bear'.
The review is completed by Panna, whose products are deservedly popular among needlewomen. Painting schemes are developed by leading Russian designers with many years of experience. Before being put into production, each kit is tested in several stages.
The main advantages of the company are reasonable cost, high-quality components. On sale there are small embroideries with a minimum number of crosses, images with a complex design. Sets with ribbons, beads and beads are available. The complete set includes a mercerized floss from Egyptian cotton, a diagram, instructions, Aida canvas, a special floss holder, a Gamma needle. Of the minuses, there is a lack of thread, the difficulty of embroidering on a black canvas.
