"Just love this class so much because this instructor isn't one of those where everything she does is just textbook perfect, she really shows you the knitty gritty, shows you where and how stuff can go "wrong", why it might do that and how to adapt your project to meet the unique demands of your fabric. She teaches principles that you can go adapt to your own project. Wonderful wonderful class, very interesting and highly recommended."
