Fabulous class; I learned a lot even though I know a bit about fabrics. The instructor was wonderful: interesting, prepared, relatable.

I loved the class! The teacher was very knowledgeable about the topic and did a great job explaining the material. The course was scheduled for three hours and ended early which is why I took away one star. It was so interesting that I wish it lasted longer! :)

This class was a good basic class. I think it was more geared towards designers and home sewers as we discussed a lot of the ways to construct fabric, instead of the properties of the fabric itself, which i was I was looking for.
