Making Faces Review by Jennine Farrugia

loved the whole video and learned heaps, but the sniffling was a bit annoying. Jennine in Brisbane.

Making Faces DVD Review by Katherine Hronas

Very, very informative with great step-by-step instructions. The instructor was very thorough and I feel confident that I can now do portrait quilts. I recommend this DVD, or download, to anyone that is scared to do "faces!"

Making Faces video Review by marilee botos

Awesome video! Very informative and easy to follow and understand. Granted, the host had a slight cold and kept snuffling, but that would be the ONLY downside of this video. It really gives you everything you need to know to start making very effective portrait quilts! Yea!
