Kind words from past Virtual ATS Attendees
"Just wanted to say thank you to all the instructors and organizers for the virtual conference. I finished up the classes yesterday and watched a couple I didn't plan on watching because I didn't have that machine/wasn't interested in that craft. I'm so glad I watched because I learned something from every one of them. It was so great to be able to take ALL the classes because the hardest part with the in-person event is deciding between all the fabulous classes"
"I absolutely love the virtual format. I work during the day and love the flexibility to watch on my schedule (even 2-3 am!). I have learned so much from all the classes - maybe more than the in-person, because I can watch and rewatch as often as possible to help understand any concept. Thank you Terri, for continuing the tradition of ATS in this format."
"I missed the personal interaction with other crafters and the enthusiasm that comes with it, but I think I learned more from the virtual ones. I often hit a glitch and fall behind in the in person classes and have learned just to sit, listen and take copious notes. With the virtual classes, I could go at my own pace and watch as many times as needed."
