The class is great and I can't wait to get started on my basket. I only have one suggestion, and this is probably because I am a working mom with not a lot of time to do projects like this -- I wish the teachers delivery was a little faster. She speaks VERY slowly. I'm from the south, so am used to slow delivery, but just wish we could speed up the video a little bit.

I am thoroughly enjoying this WONDERFUL class. It is perfect for both beginners and the more advanced sewer!! Carol is PATIENT and THOROUGH with every detail. I appreciate this so much because when you are beginning, you need that extra level of detail. I am 90% done with my basket, just need to attach the bottom and the handles and I LOVE that ANY questions I had, Carol jumped right in to help me. I believe that most anyone with a love for CRAFTS and working with your hands will just LOVE this class and the finished product. SO many possibilities. If you are a quilter, like me, then you will find MANY ways to use those skills in this class. Also many of the techniques, especially the way Carol skillfully adds the bottom of this basket, will be extremely helpful with other projects. This has been one of the BEST classes that I have purchased from Annie's and so glad that Carol took the time to share her amazing talents with us!!

The instructions are very clear and easy to understand. I haven't made the basket yet, the problem I have is not being able to find all the supplies needed. I live in Aus and I think requirements have different names and are hard to find, the stiffening for the base is one example, I'll probably improvise.

This is an excellent class I have watched the video but haven't started the project as yet.
