Granary Classes

The Granary offers a wide variety of classes for every skill level. Check out the descriptions below and be sure to stop by the shop to see the class samples in person. A 10% discount* is offered on all class materials for instructed classes with your paid enrollment. Open SewDouble Delight, and Happy Hour classes are not eligible for discounts.

*Note: Discounts do not apply to class fees, kits, sewing machines and accessories, certain manufacturer specials, or already discounted merchandise.

Class Policy (How to Register):

You may now register for classes online! You may also register for classes in person at the shop or by phone. Class reservations will only be accepted when accompanied by full payment. A supply list will be issued at that time. A 10% discount is offered on all supply list items, including any required books or patterns, with your paid enrollment. Discounts do not apply to class fees, kits, sewing machines and accessories, certain manufacturer specials, or already discounted merchandise.

Many of the classes we offer require you to purchase a book or pattern. Since the information contained in those books and patterns is considered “copyrighted” material, it is illegal to photocopy all or any portion of it; therefore, each student is required to purchase her or his own copy of the required book or pattern. In doing so, you are supporting the creative efforts of the hard-working designers who develop our favorite quilt patterns and encourage them to continue to publish and create. Thank you for your cooperation and consideration!

Refunds and/or store credits will gladly be given if you notify us of your need to cancel a class at least five (5) days prior to the scheduled class date. No refunds or credits will be given if the 5 day notice requirement is not met. We stand by this policy to assure our teachers that the minimum enrollment has been met and to guarantee those taking the class that the class will be a "go". If the Granary cancels a class, a full refund will be given.

A Note on Sewing Machines and Tools

Sewing machines brought to class should be recently cleaned and in good working condition. Be familiar with the machine and bring any accessories you think you may need, along with your instruction manual.

We cannot accommodate children or guests during any of our classes.
