Classroom Policies

Fees and Sign-up:
All class fees are non-refundable. Please make sure the date works for you before signing up. The fee for each class must be paid at sign-up to secure your spot in the class.  There is a class minimum of two students.  If we do not reach the minimum The French Seam will notify you prior to the class.

Cancellations:
STORE CREDITS are only available when your class cancellation is made at least 7 full days before the start of the first class. For example, a cancellation of a Saturday class must be received during business hours, no later than the prior Saturday. If The French Seam cancels a class, students will be given their choice of a refund OR credit towards another class. NO CREDITS WILL BE GIVEN WITHIN 7 DAYS OF THE BEGINNING OF CLASSES. No exceptions.  Please mark your calendar with the date your class is scheduled to begin. The French Seam will not send out additional reminders before your class starts.  Unfortunately, due to our busy classroom schedule, we do not have the ability to offer make-up classes.  If you miss a class meeting you may choose to schedule a private lesson for $75 with your instructor to catch up on the class.

Supplies:
Please come into The French Seam before your class to get your supply list and materials.  Receive 10% off of your regular priced purchase when you purchase class supplies from The French Seam.  Some projects require you to pre-wash your fabric so fabric may need to be purchased well in advance.
