Past Student Reviews:

“Great overview. Very organized and thorough. Great teacher.”

“Class was great!”

“I liked the small group setting - good for learning and doing hands-on projects. Jennie's knowledge and friendly instruction was delightful.”

“I just really enjoyed the class. As someone who's dabbled in making small book projects, I had several "ah ha!" moments and walked away with techniques to use in the future. That is sweet!”
