|I would give this class 5 stars if that was an option! Susan Kahjle (of wedding dress fame) is the instructor for this class and she is absolutely excellent. There were people in the class from total beginners to experienced handstitchers and she kept us all on our toes while making everything clear in wonderfully-done lesson downloads.
Always available to answer questions, Susan holds nothing back and the chat discussions range from helping a beginner learn to baste to discussing fine lace techniques. I was taught most of these stitches years ago by my grandmother, but haven't used them much. I sure will now that Susan has shown us how they are used, when they are used, and even stitch variations she has created herself.
A lot of us want to make things quickly, and some of these hand techniqes will actually prevent mistakes and save time. Then, there are times when you just want to slow down and enjoy the process -- especially with silk thread -- yummmmm.
She has a great sense of humor and I think she's going to be offering more classes on PR because I believe she enjoyed it as much as we did.
