    Ultimate Guide to Repeats
    Brilliant brilliant brilliant!
    The course went through a process of repeats that I am unfamiliar with as I do mine differently than the course shows. This was great and shows how to do things on a more professional level and I will be referring back to this course many times in the near future I should imagine.

    Awesome Course!!
    Awesome course curriculum. I absolutely loved the lessons and the forum and team Pattern Observer for providing the support online. As I am a self learner and learnt pattern design online watching video tutorials, however the method to create a perfect Repeat pattern is UGTR…You learn not just creating repeat patterns, you learn to present your files professionally. I was hesitant prior to my enrollment in TDL, however it seems a wonderful start, a beginning to my new career under the umbrella of Textile Design Lab. Thank you so much…Michelle and Team… Regards, Neelam
