Frequently Asked Questions
Q: If my child has no sewing experience, how can I get him/her started? A: First, register for a Beginner Workshop. This is a 2-hour class that typically is held on Saturday mornings. If your child is 9 and up, they can register for the Tween Beginner Workshop. If they are 7, or 8 they must attend a Parent/Child class with a parent. Once they've taken the Beginner Workshop they can register for any after-school course, Saturday course, or camp.Q: My child has some sewing machine experience. Does he/she still need the beginner workshop? A: If your child already knows how to wind a bobbin and thread the machine, then no. Otherwise they should take the beginner workshop. Q: My child will miss one of the classes in his/her course. Can I schedule a make-up?A: Students are allowed one make-up per 6-week session, only if they are unable to complete their projects in the remaining classes. Many times students are able to catch up without a make-up; if not, call or email us to schedule.Q: I signed up for a class but cannot attend due to an unexpected conflict. Can I get a refund?A: If you cannot attend the class you are registered for, we are happy to offer you a credit for another class. Refunds are provided for classes ONLY if the class is full and there is a waiting list, AND your spot is filled by someone on the waiting list.
