Very well done
Kari is a very good presenter. She goes into detail about all she is doing. I may not use everything, but it certainly opened new ideas for me. Will look for more from Kari. Review by Joy (Posted on 4/22/2014)
Lots of info!
I was really impressed with how much information is in this workshop. Kari McKnight-Holbrook is a great teacher - she is clear, positive and encouraging and also addresses what happens if you make a mistake or don't like the outcome. Her lettering tip was fantastic - so simple and yet it really makes your lettering look put-together. I also really liked the easy bindings - this is something I can easily see myself doing to start off my book binding practice! Review by eSeN (Posted on 1/20/2014)
