Excellent Class

Spending time with Harry was so fun and informative. He packed a lot of education into the time slot, and made it enjoyable. I highly recommend this class!

With sprinkles on top!

Having worked as a educator myself, I very much appreciate Harry’s preparation and attention to time. The pace was just right, and Harry shared many great tips and tricks over and above the advertised course description—like having sprinkles on top of an already yummy treat!

Even better than advertised

Harry is a real pro -- two cameras, great preparation and excellent handouts. In addition to learning the basic concepts of k1b, we learned several variations, PLUS a stretchy cast on and several bind offs. I can't believe it got so much into a 2 hour class time while still remaining clear and open to questions. Excellent

Easy to Follow

The instructor did a great job both explaining and demonstrating the stitches taught. I will be looking for new ways to use what I learned.
