We are continuing our extensive list of things to make and special techniques as well. New fabrics are arriving every month.
For evening classes with Sharon from 5:15 p.m.to 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
We are doing a special for groups of four or more. Call us a couple of days in advance when you and your group are coming. We will plan something special for your group, such as special discounts, demos, free gift bag and treats. One is lonely, two is company, three’s a crowd and four or more is a party.
We will have new fabrics arriving monthly in the new year. New classes being held as well. You must come check us out. Dates and times of classes are determined by you, the customer. We know how busy you are. Classes are Monday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Teacher Sharon Jager) and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to noon or 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or all day with a break for lunch (Teacher, Sharon Jager). Don’t wait too long to sign up for a class. Class sizes are limited.
The new classes are listed below. I tried to fill all the requests. If I missed something, please call and let me know. We have a few new policies this coming year. We are going to ask for the class fee to be paid up front; this includes any kits that are needed for the class. If you decide to cancel, we need to be informed at least 24 hours in advance. If the class you are taking has a kit included, you will need to let us know a week in advance. The number of kits we put together are determined on how many sign up for the class. Fabrics need to be purchased from our store unless stated differently in the class description.
We are hoping for a great turnout this year. Our goal is to make your time in class a pleasurable one as well as memorable.
As always we are offering free coffee, tea and treats to our customers. We offer the children of ages 3 and up free toys and crafts to keep them busy while you shop.
