Excellent trainer

Thank you so much, this course is brilliant. Showed me so many basics that I have used to make many bags and adapted to make purses as well. Certainly recommend it for a person like myself who is learning.
Please organise some more

A Great Gift For Family & Friends

Taking this class is a delight! Easy construction. Kristin is a great instructor, and I look forward to making all the bags in both her classes. The Craftsy learning format can't be beat!!
