Well presented and clear.
I bought this DVD when I was deciding if I wanted to buy a drum carder, and I am glad I did. The presenter really knew her material and I found her to be well organized, clear, and very easy to listen to. I will return to this DVD often when I make my own batts and spin them. I would be very happy to buy more DVDs from this presenter. Review by Deborah (Posted on 10/12/2016)
Intimidated by Batts No More!
I have to admit, even though I've spun several batts, they kind of intimidate me. I never know if what I'm doing is going to give me a good result or not. But after watching this video, I feel much more confident and eager to tackle them. Different kinds of batts were covered, along with different techniques for spinning each of them. Several I had never tried before so I definitely learned a lot. I was also glad to see finished yarn and swatches were included so you could see what effects you can create. Definitely a great teaching DVD! Review by Katherine (Posted on 9/7/2015)
