Builds on the first course

It is so informative and inspirational. I can now interpret and understand many patterns. This, and the original course, started and supported my love of lace shawls. Everyone should take this course. Laura is the best teacher.

Great Class!!

I loved this class!! Laura Nelkin is a great teacher and I have enjoyed all her classes and her quirky sense of humor!
