I have nothing but high praises for the Klum House patterns. I am a 63 year old male with zero experience at sewing. I learned to sew watching Elie in her online videos and have made 3 Portsmith bags so far and will be starting on a Fremont for my wife shortly. A few mistakes made but still learning and enjoying it greatly. Her teaching style is relaxed, clear and concise. The only complaint I would have is that I would love to order a bunch of stuff but as a Canadian I can't deal with the ridiculous shipping costs. I realize that this is not their fault but maybe try offering a parcel post price instead of an expedited or priority shipping option. There is a problem when I can order from pretty well anywhere overseas for way less than ordering from just over the border. Other than that I am very satisfied with my purchases and will be ordering more patterns and video classes.
