The first session starts and finishes just in time for holiday gifts, and the second session (a repeat) will be held in February.For $35 you will receive three weeks worth of step-by-step instructions, digital image transfer downloads, and access to a special blog and photo site during the duration of the class. Sign up by November 26th for a chance to win a journal, a purse and fabric transfers.

P.S. This class would also make a great gift for a friend!
