"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. I learned a lot and can hardly wait to try out her lovely cutwork designs. And thank you Craftsy, hope you will ask Evy to provide us with future embroidery classes."
