Studio Policy & Cancellation Policy


Class/Workshop Policies

In order to ensure each student receives ample attention, class/workshop numbers are limited to a maximum of 6 (8 for freestyle open class) unless otherwise noted. To make the most of the time we have, please arrive promptly and be prepared for the class/workshop you have registered for. We cram a lot into a small space of time and want to make the most of it.

 Class and Workshop Cancellation Policy

All class/workshops purchased are subject to Studio of Sewing’s cancellation policy. Please read this before booking. By registering and paying for a class you accept the terms and conditions outlined in the cancellation policy. Spaces in the classes/workshops are limited, therefore in order to reserve your space, full payment is required at the time of booking and is non-refundable and cannot be transferred to another day. Students who withdraw from a class with more than 72 hours’ notice will be issued an 80% refund or studio credit if the class is fully booked and the space can be re-sold from a waiting list. If the class is not full and/or there is no waiting list, then the fee is non-refundable. Studio of Sewing reserves the right to not issue a refund. Students who withdraw with less than 72 hours’ notice forfeit their class/workshop fee. Students who don’t show up forfeit their class/workshop fee.

 Freestyle Open Class Cancellation Policy

Space for the Freestyle classes are limited, therefore to reserve your space for the class, full payment is required at the time of booking and is non-refundable and can not be transferred to a different day. If you choose to book consecutive Freestyle classes, there will be no refunds or credits issued for students who do not attend one or more of the classes that have been booked and paid for. If you do not show up for a Freestyle Class you forfeit your fee.

 Covid Cancellation Policy

SoS can teach under level 1 & 2. In the event of change in alert level to either 3 or 4, classes and workshops will be rescheduled to future dates. If you would prefer a refund, this is absolutely OK. Please let me know.

Freestylers will have classes already paid for held in credit. Credit for classes must be used within 3 months of the Studio up and running again.

What happens when I’m sick/unable to attend class:

You’ll be notified by text to let you know that class has been postponed/cancelled. Freestylers will have the class held in credit. Workshops will be rescheduled to a later date. If the new dates don’t suit, a refund will be offered. Credits for classes must be used within three months.
