Customer Reviews

More than expected Review by Paula

So far I have been very pleased with the content and production value of every instructional DVD I have purchased from Interweave. This video , however, topped the list for me. The instructor's methodical and professional manner made me feel more like I was in art school than watching a " crafty" video. I learned so much about how stitching can enhance surface design but the section on photo editing was the bonus I was not expecting. All the most common photo editing moves ( which previously had confounded me) were explained better than any videos on photo editing I had purchased. I feel I OWN these moves now. Natalya also shared her favorite photo " effects" which I have now incorporated into my work. BRAVO and thank you.
