Well presented and informative Review by Cara

This DVD was very informative and gives a good sense and ideas for combining and blending colors in making yarns. My only reservation is that the color brown was not discussed at all. I am interested in the use of brown in creating warmer colors in yarn. I also find that my color sense may differ from others or that my computer may have different color presentation.

Some inspiration and Good presentation Review by Julie

I am inspired, which is what I was looking for. I especially appreciated the information on matching a color and how to create a colorway from a picture/swatch. The practical application of how to proceed. I have the color pencils, fabric swatches and ideas for where I want to go with them, I even got my pencils out to try to figure out how to get some of the colors, but now I know how to proceed and get the results I'm looking for. this is very hands on, and not as technical a presentation as some, but good information and well presented.
