"Have so enjoyed this class. Evy is an excellent teacher, very clear and thorough in her demonstrations and gives detailed answers to all student questions. Really appreciate her tips on conserving stabilizer, fixing errors and providing info for enlarging or using alternate methods to create different looks.
