|I'm in the Stitch-and-Flip class Shannon Gifford is teaching here at PR & this has been one of the very best sewing classes I've ever had! I'm slow. I'm always at the tail end of any class, not just sewing. But, the biggest frustration with sewing classes is that no matter how many sessions are scheduled, when the last session is over, *IT'S OVER*! the teacher goes away, the classmates go away, & if the project is not finished, the support system has disappeared! (It is very rare that I finish at the same time the class does!)
For this class, we have our own message board, the teacher (Shannon) responds to questions on the board several times a day, every day, & has assured us repeatedly that she will stay with us & respond to e-mails after the board goes away! How cool is that!?! In addition to that, we download the lessons & there were three live chats where everything could be discussed to everyone's satisfaction.
Shannon familiarized herself with each person's pattern & is able to give detailed instructions on applying her technique to our specific needs. What a concept!
Now, my last point is really a biggie for me! I love sewing in my own space with my own machine, iron, notions & sitting in my own chair! I'm home, if I hit a problem I can go directly to the computer & post a message. Believe me, my answer is back to me very quickly!
In short, I'm really enjoying this whole experience & will never hesitate to take a PR online class again! It is a trip that really rocks!
