I would like to read rather than see a video. Is that possible? Can I get a hard copy oF "Ten Brick Wall Tips for Beginners "

Anita - the videos haven't been transcribed, but the handouts on the CD do have eight pages of information.

I too prefer a hard copy to read rather than see a video. How much would a copy of the handouts for "Ten Brick Wall Tips for Beginners" cost to be mailed to me? Thank you.

Barbara - the handouts come on the CD, so it would be $9.95 plus shipping.
