My Micheal's is having a half price special this month. It half price because the class is on Sat. and the teacher in not having a 4th class after Xmas.... I've been trying for months to get into the Hobby Lobby class and no dice and really, the teacher has never returned my phone calls in the past and this month, her phone # is disconected and it's the only number for HL to get ahold of her(I wasn't wanting another # for her. I just told HL that the give out # was disconnected and the girl just blurted that out), So I was starting to rethink that anyways.....
I don't want to go to JA's as I think they are over priced so I have Micheal's and HL to chose from... There is also June's Bakery but I won't have the cash or the time for her 10 week class until later in the year
So this is my last window until summer at least to grab a Wilton class, Should I take it or no? icon_surprised.gif

I took three of their classes and they really got me started in the right direction. But I can compare to anything else Wilton is the only classes I've taking so far.

Good luck icon_wink.gif

Michaels class promotion for the Wilton classes in Dec is 50% off. So I'm not sure why that store or instructor is saying that it is half off because it is on Saturdays and they aren't teaching the last class.

As a WMI, I'd say that unless you are okay with paying for and losing out on 2 hours of instruction time, I'd wait until another time to do it. If you are doing Course 1, then either she is going to put the lesson 4 in other lessons meaning the lessons are going to be even more cramed or you will miss out on a whole lesson, which is finishing the roses, leaves, bows and sweet peas.

I scheduled my classes twice a week for the first two weeks of the month to avoid the holiday issues. When I have a class fall on a holiday I pick it back up the next week. As an example, one of my courses fell on Thanksgiving last month, we skipped that night, obviously, but are finishing up the class tonight.

I took a couple of them last year ~ for what they cost, they were worth it - fun and I learned quite a bit.
