Just What I Needed! Thank You!

Easy to follow instructions and hints.

Definite confidence booster

I'd probably classify myself as intermediate. One of my biggest problems is that when I look at a pattern and see the techniques involved, I become easily overwhelmed, thinking that it all must be too complicated.

The BEST Crafty Class for me so far

I honestly learned a lot from this class. The instructor is fantastic. I'm looking forward to taking another class from this instructor.

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. And every time I watch, I learn things that I didn't pick up before, and my sewing looks so much more professional as a result. Gail's teaching is clear and methodical. Highly recommended!
