We are happy to be offering several exciting new classes.  Many classes require a sewing or embroidery machine; please let us know if you would like to use one of ours.  Class fee is due when you register.  You can sign up at the store, by phone or e-mail.  If registering over the phone or e-mail, you must have a valid credit card.  Receipts and class supply lists will be mailed to you.  Full refunds on class fee will be given if you cancel seven days in advance.  After that, a 50% refund will be given provided you give us 24 hours’ notice.  If you do not attend a class and we are not given 24 hours’ notice, there will be no refund or rescheduling of your class.   Classes may  be cancelled if Cabell County schools are closed for snow or ice (please call ahead and use your own judgment in inclement weather).  If we cancel classes, they will be rescheduled or class fee refunded.  Stop by the store to register for your class.  Please be considerate of your teacher and fellow classmates who may have allergies – refrain from wearing scented lotions and perfumes.

Please have your fabric and supplies purchased before the beginning time of your class.  This is very important because

if you wait until time of your class, you put the instructor and other students behind.
