It's good for hand sewers not for those using machines The product description states that there's a reusable storage box, but it doesn't come with one

Very simplistic kit, not much thread on each spindle Only the scissors and thread gauge are as expected The white marker is difficult to see The scissors, tape, seam ripper and pin cushion are adequate and fine for a beginner
