Very clear instructions and a nice simple project to start with. My only criticism (and it isn't much of one) is that the volume of the recording was a bit low. It was "solvable" by cranking up my volume, though.
Cool class and great hands on project.

Very well explained! I haven't done bookbinding since college and I kinda forgot. This helped me refresh my memory :)
