Welcoming and supportive invitation to start designing Review by Alexis

I recently analyzed my experience of weaving and decided I am most interested in producing garments. Coincidental with this decision, I came across Anita's "Creative Cloth" DVD. It was definitely what I needed. One of those people who classifies themselves as "uncreative", Anita is making me think again! I like how she comes across as a warm and supportive human being, with all sorts of wisdom with a much broader reach than weaving alone. I know I will come back to this DVD again and again and take from it ideas to apply to my weaving, to how I dress and to how I analyze problems. Thank you Anita and to all who made the recording possible.
