Sewing Studio Policies and Procedures

SEW EZ2 SEW CLASS POLICIES & PROCEDURES

A copy of Sew Ez2 Sew class policies and procedures, including release waivers, will need to be signed by each student before the lesson starts on the first day of class to indicate their understanding and agreement of our policies and expectations.

Cancellations and Refunds
Your registration may be cancelled with a full refund prior to 10 days before class start date. No refunds will be issued within 10 days of class start date. However, if another person from our waitlist is able to register to fill your spot, a refund will be issued to you, less a $5 processing fee, within the first week after the first day of that class session.

Promptness
Please be prompt for your lesson. Your machine will need to be setup every class before the lesson starts. We will want to take care of that quickly so the actual teaching & practice is not delayed.

Cellphones
Please keep all cellphones turned off and away from the class area. If you need to be available to receive calls for emergencies during the 1.5 hrs. you are in class (ie; kids at home, etc.), please put phone on vibrate. If you must take a call, please exit the studio to ensure your privacy and to minimize disruption to the class. Thank you very much!

Food
Please do not bring food, beverages or snacks of any kind to your sewing lesson. Water will be provided.

Germs
Please DO NOT come to class if you are sick, coughing, congested, sneezing, sinus nasal issues, etc. etc. or otherwise contagious due to any illness. If the following week after class you become sick, please inform instructor asap so that information can be conveyed to the other students who may have been exposed.

Please wash hands prior to the start of the lesson. A bathroom is conveniently located in the studio space.

No-Smoking Policy
Our studio is a smoke-free environment. This includes the entire home, garage, driveway and yard.

Winter Weather Advisories
If Midland is experiencing severe weather where it is not safe to drive to class, class will be canceled. I will make an announcement on Facebook and try to contact each student directly. Students should feel free to contact me to confirm. I will make every effort to reschedule with input of all class members so that we can reconvene as a group at a later date & time.
