Agree with other post, She will judge you for your opinions and once she thinks your not good enough, not only will she openly tell you in front of the class but she will refuse to help you anymore the rest of the course. Even if you begin to understand she will tell your your wrong and say it in her own words.

The comments about Karp are accurate. Karp knows her stuff but she would be better suited teaching a more advance class. It is very easy to get lost especially if you are new to draping.

She gets so nervous and has this annoying laugh. She is very unclear when teaching, the guy that is assisting the class is really a better teacher. Never rely on her angle account because it is no help at all. This class was pointless and alot of unnicesarry steps

Please do yourself a favor and never take her online class. Other than that, she's very thorough and a difficult grader but she is willing to help.

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, gets annoyed when you ask questions or whenever she has to repeat herself in general. Referred to ways of doing things we'd never been taught. Definitely do not recommend taking her class, will never take her again. Good luck if you get her.

Want an A? Make sure u press your muslin well. Draw clean lines. Take copious/neat notes during demo even if u have a good memory. Pin well/evenly. Final project; make it creative but not 2 difficult. It takes longer than u think. She did not collect our final muslin/pattern paper (but she could). She brings snacks. She can't answer questions well.

She is very nice and helpful, I think Draping is a hard subject so even if you are the best Prof. Sometimes it will be hard to explain it. She was always available to talk or teach in outside of class. Overall Very good Prof. to have.

OMG she was ridiculously hard for me because I had no prior knowledge of using a sewing machine at all and because of that, I had to buy one just to keep up to always be a day or two behind. I was up until 1:30 am every night trying to catch up. I did learn a lot though and with the many sewn projects, she gave a sewing final. [-_-]

She is extremely nice but gets frustrated too easily. She is always nervous she wont finish lessons. She tends not to be sure of anything when she is frazzled. It gets really annoying. Yeah when it comes to the time of the term garment do most of it yourself. Dont ask her how to sew she will get you lost

Cons- Sometimes quite frazzled and rushed, making the lessons unnecessarily stressful. Pros- Very warm, encouraging, enthusiastic and nourishing. Informed and experienced- definitely knows her stuff and is always willing to give you the one-on-one time you need. Articulate and exacting. Ultimately, a wonderful professor.

Lessons go by so fast...and when it gets close to the end of class and shes lecturing she hurry up and speeds up the lesson and then you dont know what to do. easily irritated and never is clear when you ask her something. Just some advice..when its term project time.. try to do most of it on your own with the help of a book and tutor..she annoying

She's nice butgets irritated quickly(she tries not to show it) If you learned how to drape before her methods are very different. But now and then she brings candy =]

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Learned a lot and did well. She always seems kind of harried, however and I think the class could stand to be an hour longer so she not so rushed and irate.

Prof. Karp is passionate about WebPDM, but gets very frustrated quite easily when she can't get students as interested in the subject. She then becomes somewhat bitter and can take her anger out on the class. Always on time, lots of assignments, devoted to teaching, but also very sensitive and easily angered.

She's a lovely woman, & is very good at what she does. Her comments were very helpful, unlike some other teachers. However, her demos were so fast and involved a tremendous amount of detail, that some of us found it hard to keep up (I believe parts could have been simplified). I ended up learning a lot in the end though, thanks to the tutor lab!
