The "Facing Problem," answer

I do not like facings. I agree with the instructor. I also find them fiddly, annoying and making a show of themselves at moments I would rather they did not.

Excellent, advanced tutorial

This is an excellent class. It is not for a beginner because much of the content assumes the student is comfortable with general construction and is able to extrapolate from the sample demonstrations. It is not a how-to-sew class.

The techniques are explained clearly and methodically - very useful. I will use the class as an ongoing reference.
