It was a pretty good class. It was good that it was so hands-on, but there could have been a little more information in the pamphlet to go home with, because the class goes very quickly with little time to take all of the information in. The pamphlet is too small, so makes the writing difficult to see. A lot of time is spent cutting out the scaled down pattern pieces at the beginning of the class, perhaps this could be pre-prepared to concentrate more on the job of grading patterns,.

Thank you for your feedback - we have now added pre-printed scaled down blocks as you have very thoughtfully suggested.

This course gave me a better understanding of how to grade patterns. Although the course is not meant for alterations, it certainly shows how the concepts relate and how I might be able to upsize Japanese or vintage patterns.
