Customer Reviews

Disappointed Review by Marva

I have books by Jill and thought I would be able to make the projects pictured on the jacket of the dvd. I have never purchased anything that did not include the items pictured.
The dvd is very basic and good for those who have never tried kumihimo. Jill does amazing work and I love her approach to beading. This dvd however was very disappointing. Probably would be reluctant to purchase dvd's in the future.

Great for beginners Review by Sheri

Jill is a great teacher but this product should be marked clearly for VERY beginners. Nothing learned I didn't already know. Glad I ordered the download and not the DVD.

Good but expected more Review by Lori

Based on the photos and intro, I was really expecting to see more instruction on the items pictured and learn how to add more WOW factor. Instead this was basic 101, but only showing how to braid using beads, which was fine but nothing that was new and exciting like I had expected from Jill Wiseman.

Next Best Thing To Having Jill Teach In Person Review by Jennifer

I've had the good fortune to be able to take two of Jill's beaded kumihimo classes in person. This DVD is truly the next best thing for anyone who wants to learn how to do beaded kumihimo, but can't travel to take a class. Jill shares all of her excellent tips and techniques and really knows how to get you hooked on beaded kumihimo! LOVE this video!

Great instructional video Review by Alan

I have played with kumihimo for over a year. Although I enjoy it, I felt like I was missing something. This video has great tips. I benefited most from the finishing segment. The trouble-shooting advice also hit home. Ms. Wiseman's explanations and tips were well worth the purchase.
