Very bad
This product is very poor quality.

The instructional videos are extremely short, the explanations are rushed, the teaching is not good, the examples are shown very quickly and without any detail. Clearly this course was botched, made in a rush and without care.

In addition, the patterns included are very average, not any better than any free pattern that we can find anywhere on the internet.

I purchased several online sewing courses and tutorials and patterns, and this kit is the worst, by far. It is completely worthless.

I am very, very unsatisfied with my purchase.

This product is supposedly covered by a 30-day money-back guarantee, but I contacted the company www.interweavestore.com several times to request a refund, but never got any answer.
