    When you purchase a pre-cut BOM, check to make sure the pieces have been cut accurately. There have been cases where they were NOT.

    I've always avoided them -

    I'd rather make my own mistakes -

    And the fabrics are not pre-washed

    I did about 7 yrs. ago @ JoAnn's and didn't get it out for 2yrs. [I had to have a few surg]. They were short in measurement and not all the pieces were there.:{
    I won't buy them anymore

    I also bought one of the Joanns BOMs that had recently been discontinued, so I searched out all the months in the clearance bins of every Joanns I could find. A guild member told me that sometimes the pieces are missing or cut wrong, so I picked up an extra "setting" kit with it. Sure enough, I had one piece that was missing, and one piece that had a 'run' right down the middle of the piece.

    I've never done another, and don't plan to ever do one again. I actually liked the pre-cut idea of it, but it has to be done RIGHT for it to be worth what they charge.
