Linda Lee is an expert at sewing with knits and I do not think anyone could come away and say they did not learn something useful.

I certainly learnt a few new tricks and was reminded of many I had forgotten and was not using. Easy to see that using these techniques will result in a better looking garment

It was a well timed class for me as I was just about to sew a Burda T and got into a huge amount of problems with the neck binding - I should not have because neck bindings are very seldom a problem for me - but then you just never know with knits. Thanks to Linda's section on neck bindings i was able to conquer this beast and once I finish hating this shirt I will review.

If you are sewing knits and are completely satisfied with your end results then this class may not be for you as it really is not beyond the basics -but if you want to learn more about handling these fabrics I don't think you will be disappointed.

I have always bought my Craftsy class at a sale price, just wait until a sale comes up

Hello and thank you for your review. I'm currently working my way through this course and have learned a great deal. Linda Lee is a fantastic instructor. She speaks clearly, she reviews important points, offers suggestions for trying different approaches. I do not have any experience with sewing knits, but I now feel confident to try. I recommend this class. I believe that Craftsy offers discounted prices when they're running a sale.

Yes this is a Craftsy class - if you have had some experience with knits give it a go - I believe it's on sale now

I could not get your link to connect. Is this the class on Craftsy? I have been thinking about taking this course, but I have little experience with knits. You review sounds great.
