Overall
When I first saw 40 Techniques That Every Sewer Should Know, I thought that the class might teach some really cool tips and techniques that would really make the difference in my sewing. To say, I was a bit disappointed. I honestly didn't count the number of techniques. They didn't number each technique as Gail went through them, more so just showed every possible example for the topic; it'd be hard to determine what was a technique and what was a tip.

I think this class is perfect for beginners, teaching vital skills such as how to press your material. I believe the class was designed specifically for a beginner sewer in mind. In fact, this class compliments other beginner classes such as Bag Making Basics: Drawstring and Bucket Bag, Bag Making Basics: Reversible Tote and Zipper Bag, Sewing Machine Feet A to Z, and Sewing Machine 911.

Whilst an intermediate sewer may be able to benefit from a few of the techniques, many of the topics covered - such as top stitching - should probably already be in your repertoire and perhaps just need some practice. To be honest I wouldn't recommend this class for advanced sewers at all.

It's a very good class for beginners, but I agree it's not for advanced sewers.

It is a good class for beginners and those who, like myself, have been away from sewing for awhile and are getting back into it. I enjoyed the class, but if one has been sewing all along for years, it would just be a review and of not much value.
