Carolyn, I guess I didn't phrase the comment very clearly. What I like about their format of instructions is that fact that they are all diagramed, color-coded
and clearly written. There is even an accurate, handy layout for use in cutting out the pieces in the most economical manner. Just once, in using a kit purchased from Connecting Threads, the directions were vague & confusing. I realized that this was a kit that was not put together by Connecting Threads hence, the difference. Some patterns ramble on & on whereas a clear, concise chart would be much easier & clearer to follow. Hope this makes more sense.
