Thorough, Enjoyable, Understandable

Loved all the needle tricks. They work great. Highly recommended. Thank you Natalie.

Loved it!

Wonderful class, instructor and techniques. In the process of going through the class a second time. Have not made the coat but made my dog an AC coat instead using the appliqué techniques and had a lot of fun doing so.

The quality of what you are offering renews my faith in ...

The only problem I have had is that it is difficult to find affordable organic cotton jersey - or even good quality regular cotton jersey in solid colors. You can buy it at the AC website, but it's pricey for ...
