Description

This workshop is all about sewing awesome gifts for friends, family and yourself. We have chosen some great projects. Each project is chosen for the new sewing technique it teaches, and the trendy end product it gives you. Once you know how to make one, make many more at home for everyone!

Some examples of projects to choose from are watch wristbands, gadget cases, an embroidered eye mask, fabric baskets, a pompom and fabric rosette/yoyo garland, patchwork pencil cases or make up bags, sunglasses case, monster stuffies, trendy necklaces and headbands. We will be using lots of different techniques, including hand and machine sewing, and different mediums.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

Cancellation policy

To ensure that every student receives plenty of attention and opportunities to ask questions during the class, we make it a priority to keep our class sizes small. Classes also require a minimum number of students to run.

For that reason, your enrollment in the class is final and cancellations will forfeit the full fee However, you can also transfer your place at that class to a friend or family member at no extra cost, just let us know.

So please double check your availability before making a booking as there will be no exceptions. If you do know in advance that you may be unavailable for a specific day of the class, please contact us prior to discuss. We may be able to accommodate you in an alternate class to make up for the missed class (this option is only available if confirmed at the time of booking.)

Missed Classes

We run small group classes, most of them sized between four to six students only. This means that our classes are usually fully booked. With prior arrangement (upon booking a class), we may be able to offer a make-up class at the teacher's discretion, given there is a space available in a parallel class.

However, we regret we do not offer make-up classes for missed classes in general, due to the small class size mentioned. If we did, we would have to change our business model to larger size groups, or significantly increase our prices to accommodate the extra students.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us to discuss.
