Anita Goodesigns have changed their work shops.  They are now sending them quarterly.  This means workshops have to be paid for by the quarter.  What does this mean to Club members?  The price has not changed, it now has to be paid for 3 months at the time in order to receive any workshop out of that quarter.  it also means more projects that coronate with each other.  More designs and so much information on sewing, embroidery and quilting.  I think you will like it.

 January Classes

Deadline for all clubs is the 15th of the last month of the quarter.  I will remind you. If you do not sign up by the 15th you will not receive a quarterly workshop packet.

Most machine owners are invited to join club with a few exceptions.  The embroidery area must be atleast  6 x 10 with a USB connection.  If the machine was not purchased by you at Derrels of Dothan, dues for the first year will be $100.00. 

If you trade your machine or buy a new machine from a different dealer I will ask you to leave with no money refunded for classes.  This is my business and I have to keep my doors open in order to offer classes.  There will not be any exceptions  to this rule.

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.
