Personally, I like what they're trying to do. However, reports from folks who have gone - especially anyone who already has some experience stitching - have not been too positive, especially when it comes to cost in relation to what you get, instruction and insight-wise. Maybe they just need time to iron out the wrinkles and get the school going strong. Like I said, I think it's a great idea. But for the customer who is paying for that type of learning experience at that price, I really think it should be a stellar and a positive experience all around. Hopefully, they'll get the kinks worked out. I'd love to hear from others who have gone - maybe other stitchers have a different perspective.
