Great Learning Tool
I did not expect the volume of information presented in this webinar. This is a fantastic learning tool for me and I know it will be watched numerous times as there is so much information to absorb. I was glad to find there is no limit to the amount of times I can watch it. I am new to knitting sweaters and this provided a great base for me to learn from. I thought the slides went well and did not have trouble following at all. Review by Cat4044 (Posted on 6/3/2016)
Excellent Information--Needs Polish
There was excellent information in the webinar but I was put off by the fact that the audio did not sync with the slides--she would still be talking about one slide and either the next slide or a blank screen with a video button would be showing. She also needs to have someone else take the motion videos--it was OK but they were rocky. Review by Virginia (Posted on 2/22/2015)
