"My relationship to zippers prior to this course was not a good one--I had to unpick them and attempt at least 3 times before I came out with a passable result, but not this time! I set up the video next to the machine, followed the steps, and voila, perfect lapped zip on the first try! I wasn't sure about the stabilizer, but it made everything so much easier. Sunni is clear with a soothing voice, and she explained everything so well with good visuals."
