Making Faces
I thoroughly enjoyed this very informative video, but I'm afraid the sniffing was 'off putting'. Review by Carol (Posted on 7/27/2014)
Making Faces
loved the whole video and learned heaps, but the sniffling was a bit annoying. Jennine in Brisbane. Review by Jennine Farrugia (Posted on 2/7/2012)
Making Faces DVD
Very, very informative with great step-by-step instructions. The instructor was very thorough and I feel confident that I can now do portrait quilts. I recommend this DVD, or download, to anyone that is scared to do "faces!" Review by Katherine Hronas (Posted on 9/9/2011)
Making Faces video
Awesome video! Very informative and easy to follow and understand. Granted, the host had a slight cold and kept snuffling, but that would be the ONLY downside of this video. It really gives you everything you need to know to start making very effective portrait quilts! Yea! Review by marilee botos (Posted on 6/16/2011)
