Payment is due at time of registration. This assures your place in the class. We need this commitment from you in order for our classes to run smoothly. Also, it helps our teachers to properly prepare for the class. Our teachers work hard to offer classes they hope our customers will want to take & enjoy. Sew Original must make a commitment to the teachers ONE week prior to the start of the class. Therefore, refunds are available only when a student cancels at least 7 days prior to the class. No Refund will be given if student cancels within the 6 days before class. In the event that Sew Original must cancel a class, individuals will be contacted and a full refund will be given. Please do not ask for exceptions. Remember all students are here to learn new techniques and build their sewing skills. As much as we love children, we ask that you DO NOT bring your children to class, unless it is a class for your child or a class that is for child & parent working together. Please arrive only 15-20 minutes before your class is scheduled. This allows the teacher time to set up the classroom and get ready for the class. Please let us know if you have a class you want to see in our shops. You may also create your own class. Get 3 or more friends together, contact us, and we will find a teacher and set aside a time for the class.  MM classes are provided to you when you purchase a new or used machine from SO. There is a $50 fee per class for all NON SEW ORIGINAL PURCHASERS. Class 1 is required before taking any other mastery classes.  Bring your Mastery Workbook, scissors, pins and cotton thread to class.
