I want a silk screen set for christmas. I've only done silk screening way back in highschool. I am just not sure where to start. I have seen kits like speedball. So I am just wondering if anyone has ever started with something like that, or if anyone has Any advice...thanks

I bought a Speedball kit a gazillion months ago but have been too chicken to use it yet.  I just saw an episode of Crafters Coast to Coast on HGTV yesterday and the girl they featured made it look simple.  I think I'm going to get up the nerve and try it this weekend.  Mine comes with an instructional video so maybe you might want to check into that.

I have a kit and I just recently got up the courage to try it. I started by using it with stencils, by making a stencil like normal and putting the screen over it. It lets you play around with the technique and the ink application without being afraid of ruining your screen. Also try searching online--I've seen some helpful how-tos around.
