    I am so excited. I went on Ebay looking for a Carol Doak Paper Piecing DVD. There were many for 19.99 no shipping, which was not a bad deal, but there was one from the UK for $3.00, US would be $5.39. It said brand new no shipping and they had several. So I decided what the heck, I would see what happens. Well I ordered it on the 17th came today and it is brand new. I was a little leary thought it might come in a foreign language,:lol: .

    So this is my find, for the month.

    I remember you posting about this earlier, so glad to see your reply - and that it's a positive one. I just have to ask tho, have you tried playing it yet? I sure hope all is well. It just sounds like one of those "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" things.

    I have played it all the way through. Love it, I will not be hesitant to try paper piecing now. It is so thorough and she really makes it simple to understand.

    I learned more from her DVD then any book or pictures about how to paper piece. Once you actually see it done it's an eye opener.

    I kept hearing how easy it is and when you see her video, you realize it really is.

    Did everyone in the US read the warning about the DVD at the UK site having different formatting? You may want to check your dvd software for compatability before you jump on that bargain.

    I have played it, it is exactly the same. Works on my PC with XP, plays on my windows media program. You can always email them with questions before ordering.

    I saw that, too, but I have never tried paper piecing. I have wanted to but it looks like a lot of work and itty bitty pieces. Have you tried it yet?

    Glad I could share the info and you got it. I just got my second one that I am giving for a gift.

    It is really detailed. I think anyone could PP using her DVD.
