Thanks for asking and let me know if you have any more questions! Teresa
*I had a question about your class for beginners-sheep. I wondered if we needed to get the kit or find the 6
kinds of wool? Do we download the class to watch at any time or is it a live
class? Just wonderin'as I don't see how classes are set up.
Thank you for asking. You have a choice of ordering the kit that has everything you need for the class or you can skip the kit and use wool you may have on hand or find your own. You don't necessarily need 6 different kinds of wool for the class. The different kinds of wool are included to help the beginner felter learn about different types of wool and how they felt. When you register for the class you will receive an URL for the classroom and a password. The classroom is set up for you to view at any time. There are downloadable instructions, pictures and videos to watch. You complete the class when you have time working at your own pace. You can ask me questions in the classroom as well. I hope this answers all your questions, if not, please don't hesitate to ask.
