Clear Instructions

Thank you Gail. Isn't technology wonderful. I have done your classes in Melbourne Australia and you are in the USA. I have loved your classes which are very clear to understand.

A Good Investment

I bought this class as an absolute beginner and learned a lot. Still very much a beginner, I keep coming back to it and "revising" the techniques as I put them into practice on garments I make.

I was taking notes and I'm sure I'll be referencing it often!
