Classes

Project classes welcome any brand of sewing or embroidery machine. When bringing your machine to class, make sure it is in good working order as we cannot interrupt the class to help with repairs. Also, bring the machine manual and accessories. It is helpful to have some notions, for example, scissors, straight pins, fabric marker, ruler or any other favorites. We cannot accommodate children or guests during classes. Refreshments brought to class should be covered.

Register early to guarantee your seat and to avoid class cancellation. Notify the store promptly if a cancellation is necessary. Class refunds cannot be made within seven days of class. However, customers are welcome to find their own class replacements.

When you register early and prepay your class, you will receive the supply list and software if needed. Software should be installed onto a stick or laptop prior to class. Payments may be made by telephone using a VISA or MASTERCARD credit card. Call Sandie, Cherl, at (559) 432-8900.
