I really enjoyed making this bag. Nancy does a great job guiding the process with very clear instructions, emphasis where needed, and lots of explanation. The videography is excellent. Everything is easy to see step-by-step. I also like the fact that I was able to complete this project using my own time-frame since I rarely have more than an hour or two of uninterrupted time.

HI there. I found the lesson by Nancy very easy to follow and she explains everything very well. She has a very pleasant voice and manner and it is obvious that she enjoys designing bags. I am glad I signed up for the class. The only downside to this is the price. I think it is a bit expensive. I probably won't be signing up for more lessons due to the cost. It is a long video, so that might be the reason for the cost. Thank you.
