Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we have relaxed our cancelation policy a bit until further notice. We still cannot provide refunds for class cancelations, but for the time being, we are not requiring 48 hours notice to receive a class credit. Students can reach out to reschedule/ receive a credit at any point before the workshop takes place. 

----

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!

Sewing 101: Tote Bag
Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/18/2019
The first time slot I signed up for got cancelled. On my second try, the instructor was an hour late. But luckily her ad hoc substitute was very knowledgeable and gracious and started the class off just fine. I hadn't sewed on a machine in 50 years, and I quickly learned what I had probably been doing wrong all those years ago. The tote bag project was perfect for the time allotted and for the basic skills that were taught, and I'm pretty proud of the finished product. I will definitely sign up for another class soon.

The teacher was great altough she seemed nervous in the beginning and the first couple of minutes seemed unorganized and confusing. The group might have been a little too big. Also, water would have been nice. Anyway, I loved the result and will recommend the course.
