WORKSHOPS on CD-ROM for PC:
Our complete workshops on CD-ROM offer detailed information and
hundreds of full color close-ups of every step in Caryl's techniques.
For the same price as the average how-to book, you get far more
than we could ever include in a book or pattern. We think this is
the "how-to book" of the future. Unlike a video, where
you have to think as fast as the teacher speaks, you can study each
image as long as you like and scroll forward or backward until you
are sure you understand the information. The CD's are organized
in chapters, so you can pick up where you left off in your project.
PLEASE NOTE: These are CD-ROM
for your PC computer. They are not movies or DVD's and will not
play on your TV set.
MAC: Some of the newer Apple computers with dual boot systems
have been able to run our CD's, but we can't promise that they will
run on yours.
Please be patient
No special software is needed. The program opens automatically when
you put the disc into your CD drive. HOWEVER there are lots
of graphics on our CDs so they may take longer than expected to
open. Depending on your computer and the speed of your CD drive,
it could take over a minute for the program to open. Take a deep
breath, do some stretches or have a cup of tea:)
* If your IT person has disabled your "auto-run" feature,
you may need to "explore" the CD folder under "My
Computer" and double click on the program file.
* If your CD drive is slow, you can copy the program file onto your
hard drive and it may run faster.
* If the program opens but stops running half way through, it can
indicate that your CD drive needs cleaning. Just copy the program
onto your hard drive and it will run just fine.
GUARANTEE: We test all of our CDs to make sure they work
before they leave our studio. If an elephant sits on your CD or
if it has been damaged in any other way in transit, we will be happy
to replace it within 30 days. We can not be responsible for the
operation of CD's which have been stored for extended periods of
time in environments that we cannot control.
RECOMMENDATIONS: People often ask us the recommend the CD
that gives the most information. Naturally we can't include everything
on one CD, so depending on your personal goals or interests here
are some recommendations.
