Informative, Clear Presentation

I thought this class was a good basic overview of machine parts and possible issues that may arise. The camera angle was good and, combined with Claudia's pauses, I had time to look at and understand what she had just explained. I thought the class was helpful and gave some good pointers.

Ready to watch and learn as much as I can. I use to sew years ago I drifted to other hobbies. So let's get started!

I am an experienced seamstress who appreciated this class very much! I am going to make sure that anyone who wants to use one of my machines joins Craftsy and takes this class so they understand how to use and care for it. When it's my turn to sew, it'll be clean and ready to go!
