Really loved this class! I've been wanting to yarnbomb something for ages but kept getting stuck on various technical points. Jessie's videos give lots of great advice and she was super responsive to my questions. Just finished my first project and am eager to start the next!

Jessie is a great teacher. She's both knowledgeable and laid back, so you feel secure knowing you're getting good guidance at a non-scary level and pace. The topics are diverse, from history to installation to marketing, with lots of specific advice for all types of projects and levels. I've done a ton of yarnbombing and I still learned more than my money's worth!
Jessie is thorough and knowledgeable. She provides a great background into the history of yarnbombing as well as teaching you practical techniques.
