Now able to work with sheers without mucking them up.

This class is very useful, and taught in a clear, effective way. It is a series of techniques for handing sheers including cutting, pressing, sewing, edge finishing, and fabric manipulation. I especially appreciate the techniques for being able to cut sheers and finish tiny edges beautifully. Well done.

Great Info

Taming My Sheer Fear
