Class and Club etiquette
Please be set up and ready to sew by class time
NO perfume or scented lotions.
Cell phones have to be turned to vibrate and answered out of the class room!
If you chew gum, please do it quietly.
Classes fill fast sometime creating a waiting list. If you need to cancel, please notify us as soon as possible so we can offer your slot to someone else. Once a kit is cut, it is yours and we can no longer transfer money from one class to another.
Your Kit may be picked up after class. We hold kits for 3 months after a class.
As hard as we try we can not please everyone with a project, color, fabric etc.
Remember this is a learning process and not a pleasing contest.
