Learned Several Tips!

I'm a long-time sewer but learned several tips. Happy to have taken the class (Tips of the Trade)

Entertaining And Educational

I love the whole series and learned something new each with each episode!!

Piece-ful Cottage Episode

Loved the discussion on color. Although I'm not a yellow-hater, somehow that is the smallest color in my stash (hmmm). Did some piecing while watching/listening!
