No matter how many times I insert a zipper it always feels like the first time. Thank goodness for this class. It makes me less nervous about my next zipped-up project.

Zippers have always been hard for me to visualize as I am putting them in. Her examples of finished products first and then the step by step and showing how the pieces worked together helped me understand the why behind each step. I also learned a lot from the discussion from the classmates, both the positive and negative comments reminded me that there are lots of ways to do things and that I can never stop learning.

Thanks for this class, it made zipper insertion so much easier. I've never inserted a blind zipper before but thanks to this class it was a success the first time. I'll certainly use this class as a reference and go back to it when-ever I need to add a zipper to a project!

I believe no matter your level of sewing (Beginner, Intermediate or Advance), all can benefit from this course. The instructor, Sunni takes her time with explaining and repeating each step and the reasons for the process. You are able to see every step she performs clearly. This free class is very, very informative and detailed.
