  1. Amazing information from an expert 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2016

    I can't believe how much I learned about scissors from this expert in the field. Love the feeling of being right there in the audience.


  2. BAD audio 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2016

    BAD audio HARD TO HEAR The information was good and worthwhile, but this was not a professional production so I could not give it 5 stars.
