Customer Reviews

Overall good, except one important omission! Review by Joyce

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.
