    What others have said -

    "I watched your show recently on Create and Craft and bought your Making Braids and Cords DVD. I think it's great. I have always been interested in how braids are made, but get confused with written instructions and photographs. I haven't really done much since I used to plait my daughters hair when she was at school, and she's now 37. 
    Your DVD has set me off. I made an embroidery floss friendship bracelet with 4 threads for the first time this morning. It's not great, but getting there, and practice will make perfect. Perhaps a thicker thread to start would have helped me. 
    I've also had a go at the Round Lace 5 loop. I've never seen this done before your show. I got quite a way along before I messed up, and I have unravelled it, but that was looking great, the tension was very easy to keep, and it was only my 59 bumbling fingers that let me down, lol."~S.A 

    From the Create & Craft website:


    "I bought this alongside thread wrapping buttons DVDs after watching Gina's TV Demos - just had to give it a go. As with her other DVDs this also gives truly fabulous instructions - so clear and well illustrated. Inspirational too."


    "This is a good product for learning the basics, but be aware once you get started it can be addictive"
