Classroom Policies

  •  You may register for classes at the store, by phone, or on-line. Class fees must be paid in full to reserve your seat.
  •  The class fee does not include supplies or materials for the class unless noted.
  •  The supply list will be given at time of registration and it is your responsibility to collect/purchase the supplies before class. If you register online and do not see a supply list to download, you may pick the supply list up in the store.
  • Students may cancel a class for a refund 72 hours (3 days) before the class begins. Cancellations must be made in person or by phone and may not be done via e-mail. Out-of-town teachers are non-refundable (see below).
  • Special events and certain classes (out-of-town teachers) are “non-refundable”. A student may sell/transfer their reservation to another individual if they are unable to attend. Please contact us with the details prior to the event/class.
  • Due to copyright laws, all class attendees must have their own copy of the required book/pattern/magazine/handout/DVD for the class/workshop. Absolutely no photocopies allowed in class and no sharing of embroidery designs, patterns or books.

Class Cancellations

  •  In the case of inclement weather, students should call the shop before the start of a class to see if it has been postponed/cancelled.
  • At the teacher’s discretion, classes that do not meet the minimum number of students may be rescheduled or canceled. If canceled, a full refund will be issued.
