- Helpful techniques
- I always learn something new when I watch one of Lexi's DVDs. I am not particularly interested in Southwestern designs, but I bought it because I know I would learn a new technique, or how to do something I am already doing - better. I was right! Extremely helpful learning tool. (Posted on 2/4/2016)
