Recently, on my Yahoo CCS group, there was a discussion about kits vs. patterns. Now, I started out doing a lot of kits. I generally have no problems with them and I don't feel the need to swap fabric. The only exception is the Snow White Kinkade piece. I'll live with Aida. I think Kits can look just as nice as patterns from books. So here's my comparison using finished stuff that I've done.
