Booking Terms & Conditions

Cancellations by You for Time to Sew/Childrens Classes
We do understand that occasionally you may not be able to attend a class. If this is the case we kindly ask you to inform us as soon as possible (at least 7 days before the class). We shall then try our best to allocate you an alternative session where there may be a space. However, we cannot always guarantee that this alternative time or day will suit you but we will always do our best. Please Note if you give us less than 7 days notice you will lose your session.

Cancellation by You of a Workshop
We require a minimum of 7 working days if you wish to cancel your place on a Workshop and an administration fee of £35.00 will apply for us to offer you an alternative session. Please note - Less than 7 days notice you will unfortunately forfeit your payment.

Missing a Session on a 6 Week Beginners to Sewing and Dressmaking Course
When booking onto any of our 6 week courses, you are agreeing to attend on the same day and time each week. If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled dates you will lose that session. However, you can book onto a Time to Sew session so you do not miss out on any information. These sessions are charged at £20.00.

Cancellations by Us
If a cancellation is unavoidable we will offer an alternative session to suit you or offer a full refund for that particular session or workshop.

All our classes can be purchased; online, over the phone or you can come into the shop and pay. We ask for full payment up front.

Health & Safety
We guide you on how to safely use the equipment at the school, but please be aware that you do so entirely at your own risk.

COVID-19 Guidelines and Changes


Due to current status with COVID-19 we can no longer provide all of the basic sewing kit for use during our classes and workshops. We will still provide the sewing machines and pressing areas but you will need to bring your own basic hand tools.
What will I need to bring with me?

  • glass headed pins
  • fabric shears
  • small thread scissors
  • tape measure
  • fabric marker (friction pen, tailors chalk, etc)
  • hand sewing needles
  • pin cushion
  • seam ripper

If you do not have these essentials, we have put together sewing kits with all of these items. Available in-store and online, in both adult and child versions.
