Have any of you bought Leah's DVD's ? I am tempted and wondered if I could learn this way. I took a class and got almost nothing from it.

I'd like to know too. I know that whenever I buy a dvd, I end up finding the same or similar info online but I think it would be better to just watch a whole dvd. And easier.

I don't think there is anything on the dvd that isn't on-line.

If I could find downloadable short videos that would work for me but watching online is impossible. I have dsl but it's still uber slow.

I guess I didn't think it was a bad price. Since the class I took was almost that much and I learned zilch. I was hoping to hear from someone who had purchased the DVD's, but so far no luck.

The thing with FMQ is that it's one of those things that requires practice, and a lot of it. It isn't a technique that you can learn and just go do. More like learning to play an instrument - you start out pretty bad and just keep at it.

The class I took suggested using 12" sandwiches and just sewing on at least one of those every day. Many people who are successful at FMQ find that if they've not done it in a bit, they still have to do some "warm-ups".
