Customer Reviews

Very good, as far as it goes...bad customer service Review by Karen
Rating

The clear, step by step instructions are very helpful. Unfortunately, the problem of missing information has not been corrected, even though it was noticed over a year ago. After many emails, I finally (August 15, 2014) got a response telling me that "the original producer, video team, and the sewing group involved in trying to figure out where this missing section is," and that they would keep me updated. It's been two months, now, and still no word. I am not impressed with the customer service from Interweave.

Excellent Workshop!! Review by Marion

This has to be my favorite workshop on bag making. Linda shows and explains many different bags. She explains the outer fabrics, linings, hardware and when and why to use interfacings. The bag that she shows step by step how to make, includes methods used in making many kinds of bag. I highly recommend this workshop to experienced as well as beginning bag makers. Linda is a great teacher. You will learn "SEW" much from her years of making bags.

Overall good, except one important omission! Review by Joyce
Rating

Very good workshop with helpful demos on zipper installation. However, there was one omission in the section constructing the featured bag...Linda said she'd be right back to finish the bag and show how she made the corners, but that part was skipped and she went on to a new topic. Oops! Someone didn't give this workshop a final review. Even with that mistake, I'd recommend the DVD as it included several helpful tips.
