HhWonderful Class

This was one of my favorite Craftsy classes. Brett has a very pleasing voice and demeanor, and is an excellent instructor. I learned some great tips for bag making, especially regarding zipper installment. This is a class that I plan to watch again and again.

Great and thorough class

Brett is a great instructor. Ive owned this class for over a year now and find myself repeatedly coming back to certain sections to help me along with whatever bag I may be making. This is a class you will definitely want to hold onto. A+++

Great Course, Happy i Bought It!

As a newbie sewing I found this course extremly helpful. Brett's explanations are clear and the images too.
I also find very useful all the coments related.
All the four bags presented are gorgeus and the details and pattern given really give all necessary tools to make your dream-bag after your own design.

This is a wonderful class because you learn all the basics and the different zipper techniques that can be applied to your own designs later on. The name says it all! Thank you!
