The content was great! I think this class would be perfect for a girls' slumber party or something fun like that. The editing was not very good. There were a few times during the yarn letter that she repeated herself and it was clear she expected one of those to be edited out but they weren't edited out. There was a point during the splatter letter that I could hear men in the background. I just think the editors should pay a little more attention but I think the class itself was fantastic for teenage girls!
