This is a great class. The instructor is easy to learn from. Other online classes I have taken elsewhere weren't as user friendly as this one. I especially like how she has a stopping point to allow us to practice. Since I have to do this in short bursts, it allowed me to get the most out of the class. Keep it up!

I loved the class and instructor. Would recommend this class to everyone who wants to learn to tat with the shuttle. I know how to tat with needles, which would be a great class also. Thank you very much.

Thank you Janette! I can finally understand a pattern! She explains things in a way that make them easy to understand. I was not disappointed and would tell anyone that this is the class to take if you want to learn to tat. Such beautiful pattern to do, my first project was the heart and it's beautiful. After trying for years, I finally got it!

I enjoyed the class as a refresher course after many years of not tatting. I also have her book and DVD which I need to get out and add to my list of things to learn. By the way I noticed that someone mentioned that the heart pattern wasn't included in the projects. If they would go back and listen to her introduction again, they would discover that she says the pattern is in her book.
