Studio Stitch Class Information
All classes at Studio Stitch require registration prior to the day of class. Please call, e-mail, or register in person with a staff member. All class fees should be paid in full upon registration. Any class supply lists and/or special instructions should be supplied upon registration. Please make sure you pick them up when you register. Classroom machines are available upon request, a $5.00/day fee will be added to the cost of Class. Student should be prepared to provide their own thread. Please contact us if you are unsure what type of thread is required for your class.
Studio Stitch reserves the right to cancel any class (including mastery classes) if the minimum enrollment is not met. Our rule of thumb is to make the final call (based on enrollment) one week prior to the start date of class. We will do our best to let each of our students know if a class has been canceled, but ultimately it is the customer’s responsibility to check with Studio Stitch to confirm the class has made. If a class is canceled by Studio Stitch and/or teacher due to low enrollment student will get full refund or store credit of class fee. If a class is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances including illness, weather, etc we will do our best to reschedule at a later date. If a student should need to cancel or drop out of a class they will get full refund if they let Studio Stitch know at least one week prior to class start date. There is no refund if student cancels within the week before class.
|Sit and Sew Every Wednesday!!
We will continue to have Sit and Sew every Wednesday during this quarter!! Leave the housework at home, bring out those projects that need finishing and come on over for some "sewing camaraderie". There will always be someone to help you if you get to one of those spots that you just can't figure out. I know I can accomplish more if I am sewing away from home without the ringing phone and the laundry that always needs to be done.
