  1. I remember when I first started seeing paper pieced projects and patterns - I couldn't figure out the concept - I just couldn't picture it in my mind. Then one of my sewy friends sat down with me and showed me the technique - THAT was when it clicked for me :) I'm a visual learner and seeing it made things make sense - videos are a very valuable resource!

  2. I agree with Sandra, written instructions for complex techniques like FPP just don't cut it with me I need to see what I am supposed to be doing. Video tutorials are a great way to teach someone like me :)
