Fantastic class. love, luv, luve. loove Tara & tinker.

Outstanding class. Tara is engaging, witty, clear and obviously loves sewing and teaching. The tote project is not easy, but she breaks it down into do-able parts, shows how to fix mistakes, offers simplified alternatives and is quick to answer questions and provide encouragement in the same friendly tone.

This was my first patchwork project, and I loved it. I really enjoyed adding the fabric and stitching down, but didn't attempt the free motion quilting on this Tinker Tote yet.

Love sewing when it is wet and windy outside!

Great tote!

Loved this project. Clear concise directions... My tote turned out perfectly! The basting glue was new to me... Wow, I love it!

Amazing class!

This class is so awesome! You get a great bag out of it, as well as a ton of techniques to apply to other bags and things. It's a great intro to QAYG. You also learn to make pockets, including zippered pockets, and it was all shown and explained in a really easy to understand way! Tara is a great instructor, and this is one of my favorite Craftsy classes to date (and boy do I have a lot). I love my tinker tote, and now I have everyone begging me to make them one too.

Lesson Success!!

Great class! Teacher was very helpful and explained well! There was some confusion I had, but other class members questioned it so I had my answer. Ill be able to apply these techniques on all my bags, not just Quilt
As you Go.
