Betz is the Best!!!

I am a beginning sewist and I just loved this class. Betz is so thorough in her explanations without being boring. She doesn't try to make jokes or fool around. She is matter of fact. BUT, the things she makes are playful and useful and you don't have to go out and spend a ton of money on fabric and gizmo's. You probably have most of what you need laying around the house or you can get it cheap at the thrift store. I hope she will make PROJECT UPCYCLE II soon. It's time!!!!!!!!

Unexpected new skill-wrap skirt

I loved the technique for the reversible wrap skirt. I confess I haven't made it yet, instead I made reversible panel curtains. Betz's explaination of the reversing technique inspired me, and now I have two-sided curtains for a doorway that look great on both sides. They drape the way I need them to for the application, and the topstitching keeps them looking neat, washable and non-fraying. This would have intimidated me before I took this class.

I absolutely loved your class. I'm new to sewing and I love everything about your class. I love the details and information that you give to each project. Since I'm new and only have Craftsy Courses to learn new things, I love detailed information and your class offers that for me. Thank you for the great class. I will certainly look forward to any classes that you may do for Craftsy.

I loved everything about this class. The way, the pace, the clarity and absence of useless chattiness in which this lovely teacher teaches us, the fun projects, the reasonable background idea of upcycling in general. I took a lot of craftsy courses so far, but this is one of my favorites! I had some technical issues, too, But I would never give a low rating to a teacher in Craftsyland because of random technical issues, which come up because of my cr**** computer or a poor internet connection.
