Hi! I am registered for the seaglass tutorial for 4/30 and am wondering how I can get to the PDF and print it out before the class starts? Thank you! Looking forward to this class! Be Clifford

Hi BeClifford,
Handouts are put in people's CRAFTCAST online libraries on the day of class. We don't promote or suggest working on the project during the LIVE class presentation. It's best to watch first and ask questions. If you have other questions after watching the video playback, just sent us an email and we will follow up with answers.
