compelment and complaint

I really enjoy your videos. I have to complain about one thing as there is no other place to do it--I do not like commercials showing up when I want my video. I think it is very unfair for me to buy a video and then have to watch commercials.

Sew helpful!

I'm just learning to sew more than a straight line, and I loved this class! I successfully made my first bag and now want to make more, as gifts! Thank you so much, Kristin, for the helpful assistance through the project. I felt you were patient, detailed, and real. You are a great teacher. I enjoyed taking your class and look forward to trying the zipper pouch as well.

Fun and easy class

This class was really fun and easy to follow. I'd say it's a very rewarding experience that is sometimes necessary before branching out to more complicated pieces as it's great practice for techniques you will be using throughout other projects. The only constructive criticism I have is to maybe note the seam allowances in the text instructions consistently throughout. In some places it was only available in the video. Other than that, excellent class!

great for zipper practice

I have lots more to learn, but this was a great class. I have only made the zipper bags, but I plan to make the tote soon. My only suggestion is that the written directions provide just a few more details that are in the video. I watched the videos numerous times while doing physical therapy exercises!
