    Reviewed by Kimberly de Geer on 3/16/2016
    Very instructive workshop filled with thorough information about sourcing and manufacturing in the US and internationally. Also enough time to go over everything. The only thing I would recommend would be some visuals either in the form of a slideshow or pamphlets because it is quite a long workshop and visuals are always a good way to entertain an audience.
