This class was very "nice" to watch! After watching soooo many how- to videos that either didn't really explain anything, to videos that went so fast that I was pausing every 15 seconds. This one, however, was very relaxed, easy to understand, and she explained EVERYTHING! Very nice class. I made the hanger, no problem, it turned out great. Thankyou!!
