    Overall, I learned some fun techniques and enjoyed Megan's voice and informal speaking style. I am also, a 'design/learn as you do' crafter, so I found this style relatable, however, as a craft teacher I do know that for others this can be frustrating. I agree with some of the other reviewers that she lacked sufficient knowledge about textiles for this presentation. This is a great place to start learning about creating your own stamps.

    I was somewhat disappointed with this class. The intro video sold the class well (likely because it was scripted?), but sometimes I felt like the instructor didn't know as much as she should. For example, it is common knowledge that washing the sizing out of fabric prior to dyeing or stamping on it will improve the take-up of the dye. she also didn't seem to be extremely knowledgeable about types of dyes.

    I'm glad this class was on sale. I was not impressed with the instructor. I felt that she told her audience that they had to "experiment and just try different things" too often. I don't think you need a class and an instructor to learn that. This class fell short of my expectations for a creativelive class.
