    I’m just starting this class, but have reviewed several lessons and can see that it is as well thought out and presented as others I have taken from Lauren. Great introduction to rulers on a small project, which keeps it from being overwhelming.

    This course was the first Bold Notion course I took. Lauren in an excellent and amazing teacher. My placemats are wonderful. I have taken many more of her classes and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this class for anyone, but especially if you want to get an idea of her teaching style before taking a more expensive class.

    I loved this course and the end result. I am a beginner FMQer and Lauren’s detailed and encouraging instruction gave me the confidence I needed to complete several placemats that I am very happy with. I love her creativity and willingness to generously share her talents. Thank you Lauren!

    This is the first class that I took from Lauren. Even though I’m fairly new and a total beginner of ruler work. The class is very informative, detailed and I truly have learned so much about ruler work. I’m looking forward to finishing up my project and taking more classes from Lauren in the near future.

    • Admin_Lauren

      This is wonderful! my goal is always to make it understandable at any level but also to allow for you to build on the concepts!

    I really enjoyed this class. This was the one that started my adventures in working with rulers. Lauren teaches you the importance of marking your piece which allows you to properly line up your ruler. What appeared to be a hard design was very easy with these instructions.
