Class Policies

Class Sign-Up

To reserve your spot in any class, you will need to sign up in advance and pay at the time you sign up.  Many classes will have space limitations because of classroom size and to make sure you get the best education possible.

Registration can be done online or in person.

To prevent class cancellations and to ensure you get a spot in the class you want, students are encouraged to register early, as most classes will have a minimum sign-up cancellation policy.

Students should check with the shop before purchasing any fabric, kits and/or major supplies for a class, in the event of cancellation.

Class Fees

The Class Fee must be paid (or certificates/vouchers ordered) when you sign up for the class to guarantee your seat.

Thimble Sewciety will not "hold" a seat for you.  Full payment of the Class Fee guarantees your seat.

There are no refunds for cancellations made less than 48 hours before the start date of a class.  Your class fee can be applied towards another class or returned in the form of store credit.

There are no refunds on class fees for "Special Event" or outside teachers/classes within 30 days of the event date unless we can fill your spot with another person.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
