"Deb's class was just the right mix of instruction and working on our own. She put in a lot of preparation time to provide the best experience possible for students. She was always available to help and so generous with supplies at such a nominal fee. My scarf turned out gorgeous! I’m totally engrossed at home today with wool, silks, soap and water, and way too many ideas for one day. Plus, all of our scarves ended up so gorgeous. It was great, thank you!"
