In addition, you will be part of a closed Facebook page, where you may post questions. This page is unique in that Margie explains the rules behind the issue. You won’t see anything like “It looks good” or “That is what I learned” or “I like it” on this page. Members of the subscription also receive a 10 percent discount on all products and classes.
