Classes are small. You get personal attention in our classes and we want our classes to be enjoyable for all of our students and our instructors.

Registration
If you have registered for a class using PayPal, you are automatically confirmed for that class.  Classes are held based on enrollment. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment your registration fee will be refunded in the manner in which you paid or it can be applied to the next scheduled class.

Refunds
Class fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Transfer
If you cancel one week in advance of the class date you may transfer your session to another date. There is NO REFUND NOR TRANSFER TO ANOTHER CLASS if we receive notification from you less than one week prior to class date.  Our classes are small and our teachers have prepared for you and other students have missed out on the opportunity for that spot in the class.  Sorry, but we are unable to make exceptions.

No Show
If you pay for a class and don't show up to class, you forfeit your payment.

Sewing Machines
If you bring your sewing machine, it must be clean and in working order.  Remember to bring all attachments including the power cord and foot pedal.  If possible, bring the manual with you. 

Inclement Weather
A banner will be posted on the front page of the website if class is cancelled due to inclement weather. If there is no notice informing that class is cancelled, WE HAVE CLASS AS SCHEDULED! 

Emergencies
If for any reason we need to cancel class due to an unforeseen emergency, we will post a class cancellation notice on the home page of the website. We will at all times make every effort to keep you informed. Please be understanding if we cause you any inconvenience.

Class Cancellation
If we need to cancel a class, we will issue you a refund or you can transfer your payment to a future session of your choice, whichever you prefer.

Additional Info
Some 8 year old children and older are not ready to sew! They may not be able to patiently apply sewing skills and techniques. 
Learning to sew safely is very important.
Sewing is very process driven. If you know your child has a short attention span, is hyper-active or has behavior issues, they may not be ready to learn to sew.
