"I wanted to start sewing ... had no time to take a class ... decided to look online ... struck GOLD. This was my first class / project about 8 weeks ago. Now I have done 10 tote bags ... and I am totally hooked. For a beginner, nothing is better that craft / home décor. Kristin Link gives great clear instruction. ... Eight weeks after taking Kristin's class I have taken two other classes and I have made a few skirts, a dress and one blouse. I am a sewing addict. Thank you, Kristin Link and Craftsy!!!"
