Hard to rate this online class since the only negative - how totally impossible it was to navigate the web site and actually find the lessons! - outweighed the great content therein.

Great ideas to inspire, lots of tips and techniques, probing questions to make you think about what you're trying to achieve, excellent notes and diagrams to print off and keep.

Some of my favourite treatments include: how to add interest with layers (what to consider, estimating yardage, what shapes work, etc); embossing fabric using 2 different techniques; ribbon roads to add colour and texture to solid fabric; the scalloped tucks currently seen in a lot of RTW blouses; scrapping; fabric yo-yo's (can't wait to play with those); and, lastly, a discussion on when enough is enough, sometimes a fine line.

My recommendation? I would take another class with See It Sew It because I feel like I've done the hard yards, climbed the slippery slope, scaled the steep learning curve and reaped the many rewards. If you haven't, take a deep breath.....

The classes look so tempting, but I've not heard many positive things about the site, or the willingness/ability of the instructor to answer questions.
