"I love this class! I watched it all the way through first - then warped up to work through the various projects. I am thrilled to have learned so many new techniques, "seeing" how they are woven was so helpful, as books can only take you so far. I like how the lessons were laid out, all the helpful tricks and tips and I really liked how the instructor worked with many types and weights of yarn. ... Thank you for an outstanding learning experience."
