Fun and Practical!

This is a great beginner's class to learn some techniques and end up with cute, useable bags. The class is well taught, easy to follow and full of tips. Be warned, however, that the bags are so fun to make and have so many uses, you'll be hooked.��

Excellent bag tutorials!

I love Kristin's tutorials. She is clear and explains each step adequately. I have made several bags of various sizes using her tutorials. I like her bag tutorials the best so far. I'm an advanced beginner, coming back to sewing after a many-year hiatus and appreciate the videos stepping me through the entire process.

My drawstring bags will now look great!

Thank you Kristin for this great class. I've found the techniques for the channel stitching and the drawstring (so neat and professional) especially helpful. Thank you and thank you to Craftsy.

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
