|I recently took this class and found it to be one of the best I have ever taken, online or otherwise. Shannon is an excellent and patient teacher, who has a wealth of knowledge. She helped me overcome my fear of patternmaking and almost immediately I started using her techniques with much success. She can take a piece of clothing apart and in very simple terms, show you how it's made. The homework assignments were fun and somewhat challenging. I especially liked the field trip. There aren't enough stars in the rating to indicate how excellent the class, and she as a teacher, were.
The only, and I mean only, problem with the class was due to the large size of the lessons, 1-2 megs, which contained many color digital photos. This seems to be Pattern Review's required format for a class and to me doesn't personally reflect on Shannon or her abilities.
