It is necessary to pre-register for all classes. 

Payment is due upon registration. When you register, please request a supply list for your class. Supplies are not included in class fees unless otherwise stated. Students receive a 15% discount on class supplies purchased here. We make a commitment

to our teachers one week prior to class time. Therefore, no refunds will be made after that time.

If you have not paid for the class, you will be counted as a non-enrollment. In the event class is cancelled

by the teacher, low enrollment or inclement weather (we follow Henrico County school closings), students who are registered and paid will receive a refund, store credit or may apply fees to another class. To prevent cancellations due to low enrollment, you are encouraged to register early.

(Machines are not needed for class, but be sure to bring your flashdrives)  This club is designed for everyone who enjoys sewing & embroidery!

In a bathroom the shower curtain is usually the inspiration piece that brings everything together so it better be one that you love. To guarantee it, make your own! A shower curtain is one of the best first projects for a home sewer other than a pillow cover or maybe flat panel topper and made even easier with the plastic home dec grommets!  Great class for the home dec beginner!
