Additional Class Information

General Information

  • After school classes are 1 hour long.

  • Homeschool classes are 1 hour 15 minutes.

  • Private classes are 1 hour long.

  • Schedule and tuition is based on 3 classes per month. Most months will have 4 classes and a few will have 5. I don't charge any extra for months with more than 3 classes.

  • Maximum of 3-4 students per class to allow for plenty of 1-on-1 instruction.

  • Use of a sewing machine and sewing tools are provided in class.

  • Classes are held in my home in the Westwood Subdivision.

  • Students will learn to sew using the world renowned Kids Can Sew curriculum. 

  • STANDARD TUITION students are responsible to bring their own fabric, thread, buttons, etc. to class for each project.

  • Students will be provided their own curriculum workbook at no additional cost. (1 workbook per year) The workbook includes all the patterns they will need for the year. Once they complete the workbook, they will move into the next level. Each workbook takes 9-18 months to complete.

  • Masks are optional.

Tuition & Attendance Policies

  • Tuition is due by the first of each month.

  • Tuition is the same each month regardless of the number of classes offered/attended.

  • Schedule and tuition is based on 3 classes per month. Most months will have 4 classes and a few will have 5. I don't charge any extra for months with more than 3 classes.

  • Classes are offered on a month-to-month basis, so no long term commitment is required.

  • If you wish to withdraw your child, 30 day notice must be given.

  • Makeup classes are not guaranteed, but are offered based upon availability in another class. 

  • If your child is unable to attend their regular scheduled class, please call/text to let me know with as much notice as possible.

  • If I have to cancel a class for any reason (sickness, weather, etc.), other arrangements will be made. Either the class will be added on at the end of the school year, or a makeup class will be offered.

COVID Protocols

At this time, masks are optional. We will be sanitizing sewing machines and work stations between students. Sewing tools (other than sewing machines) will not be shared. Each student will be provided a personal workbox that contains scissors, pins, seam gauge, and other tools that they will use each class. Each workbox of supplies will not be shared with other students.

I am vaccinated, but will not ask or require anyone to share their vaccination status. I will not be wearing a mask unless requested to. I am happy to wear a mask if it makes anyone feel more comfortable. Masks for students are optional. I want your child to feel comfortable and welcome. I will keep parents informed, should there be any changes to this.
