**At this time, we are moving forward with our schedule, but with some additional precautions and restrictions. Attendance will be limited to ensure an overly cautious amount of social distancing is possible, we will be taking temperatures at the door, requiring all students to wash hands or use hand sanitizer (provided by the studio) upon arrival, and masks will be required. Beyond that, we have a secure supply of antibacterial cleaning products and will be disinfecting the entire space before class, in between the morning and evening sessions, and after class ends. We have installed a continuously running UV sanitation for our HVAC and also have a UV sanitation unit that will disinfect the entire space every evening when the studio is empty and a commercial cleaning crew that comes in to double down on our efforts. Please contact us via phone or email if you have any questions.
** Please note that our schedule and attendance policies will be continually evaluated and can be changed at any time. Just like each of you, we are doing our best to evaluate a rapidly evolving public health crisis and determine how (and if) we can operate safely. We will make every effort to communicate changes in a timely fashion; should there be a change to our schedule, for any reason, or you as a customer have a change of heart about attending a class, full refunds will be issued.
Beginner Sewing Class: Sewing 101 is a 4-part series designed specifically for beginners; we help you learn to sew from step 1 — you can even bring your machine still in the box!
