Very inspirational. This instructor is very well prepared. Her design is unique and interesting. She presents a project that is indeed meditative and fun, for even a beginning stitcher.

Very clear instructions. I am so glad to learn that Frixion pens disappear with heat!

This was very fun and easy to do. It turned out beautiful and I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is a beginner or an experienced embroiderer. Lauren gave great instruction an made it very easy to follow along with each step. I am so glad I took this class, and I will be making more of these using different colors.
