"I just have to tell you how much I enjoyed this class! It was my first internet venture so I was a bit apprehensive. No more! It was great for me to be able to go back over the steps over and over. ... Also I live in a rural community and would have to drive an hour or more to even find a live class so I am so happy that I stumbled upon Craftsy. ... Gwen is an excellent instructor. Thanks so much for this class."
