“I want to say a huge thanks to Rebecca for this amazing course. I was pretty much stuck on blocking leather crowns and you just made my millinery world so much easier to make them. Such great detail in the tutorials and step by step that made me feel so much better in my work. Also love how I can find where I was last up to and can go back to the section I really wanted to go back to, which has made it way much easier than any other online millinery tutorial platforms.”
