Not just for knitting!

I am one of those people who skip around projects (knit, crochet, and as of late, weaving), as my interests and whims change.

(I live in Florida) So I have found that I need to seam pieces of my weavings together to make various things and I am using John's techniques in that fashion. I especially enjoyed the lesson on seaming with different materials!! Leather and rings oh my! I feel this class is useful to ...

Amazing class. I previously have longed to make sweaters with set in sleeves, but the challenge of doing so has made me avoid it. This class has removed my fear of setting in sleeves and added many other seaming techniques to my skill set. I feel like I could take on a variety of seaming challenges with the incredible guidance John gives in this class.

So Helpful An Easy To Use

This class has done wonders for my knitting. I have been knitting for a while but all my skills are self-taught. Seaming has always been something I wanted to improve on, especially sleeves. I've always struggled with doing set-in sleeves and this class made it a piece of cake. Now my sleeves go in just as easily as seaming up my side seams.

The instructor is very clear and concise. He is so relaxing to listen to and learn from.

John is a calm, precise teacher with a dry sense of humour. So many different ways to approach seams and also alternative ways to seam with different materials. An excellent class, highly recommended. I will be using this as a reference guide again and again
