What others have said -
"I received the new DVD's Making More Buttons yesterday and the dvd's are brilliant!!!!! I already thought the Making Buttons DVD was exceptional but these dvd's take it to another level. Gina you have obviously taken a lot of time to do the dvd's because I love at the beginning of each button you list the tools and materials used.
The dvd's are so easy to follow because on the dvd's we are seeing EXACTLY what you are doing unlike other dvd's they start talking and the camera shows everything except for what you want to see."~ Meg
"You are amazing at explaining everything and the angle makes it so easy to follow. I wish others would do the same as some instructions are impossible"~Jenny
"...your DVD's have to be one of the best I have purchased. It is like having your own teacher watching the dvd's and you can follow your instructions because you show us stage by stage whilst doing it with your hands. I think too many people think they can make a dvd but all you see is their face and surroundings etc and you have to guess what they are doing. "~M.G.
