  PLEASE NOTE:  UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE, ALL CLASSES LISTED BELOW ARE HELD IN THE SHOP IN OUR UPSTAIRS CLASSROOM.  A LIFT IS AVAILABLE TO CARRY YOUR MACHINE AND CLASS SUPPLIES UPSTAIRS.

PLEASE REFRAIN FROM WEARING PERFUMES AND FROM USING SCENTED PRODUCTS.  This ensures a productive and pleasurable experience for the instructor, staff and students - especially those with allergies. THANK YOU!

If you would like to sign up for any of our classes or workshops, please click the link for the class you wish to attend to sign up, pay and get your supply list or call the shop at (302) 732-6304 and we will be happy to sign you up! You can then either stop by and pick up your class supply list or request to have one e-mailed to you.

We will let you know if the class you have requested is full. If this is the case, then we can place your name on a waiting list. If for some reason someone decides that they cannot attend the class after signing up, we begin to call those people who are on the waiting list. Most of the time if we have a large interest in a particular class, we will schedule to have the class again and  then begin to contact the people on the waiting list before offering the class to the public.
