I’m not a beginner but got a lot of tips and tricks out of this course....it sure makes my life easier. There’s something for everybody.....i can now cut the right way, sew with no pins, handle slippery and curly light weight knits etc etc.....i just loved this course!!! I especially apriciate the fact that there are no brand specific stiches and stuff so you can just use any machine you have. I recommend this fantastic course for anyone who want to tackle knits! Thanks Angela for putting in so much time and effort into these videos!
