On top of that, every time an order is placed, you receive a free gift or two depending upon the amount spent.

Kits normally contain fabric, thread (cotton or yarn), needle and instructions. Sometimes a graph or other accessories are included as well. This makes creating your piece of work that much easier, as most of the initial setup is done for you.
It would be safe to say that they mostly deal in a wide variety of Counted Cross Stitch Kits, or have a majority of these available. Ask them if you don't see something you know about and are interested in. You never know your luck in their ability to access this from another country.
