A minimum number of students is required for most classes. If the Granary cancels a class, you may choose a refund, store credit, or to transfer your class fee to another class of your choosing. Note: For classes with guest teachers and some special workshops, the cancellation window for a refund may be longer and will be noted in the class description. For Tweens/Teens Camp classes, see the cancellation policy in the class description.

A Note on Sewing Machines, Tools, Personal Property and Guests

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

Please do not leave your sewing machine, sewing tools and projects, or other personal items at the Granary. We do not have the space to store your items between classes or open sew sessions you may be taking, and the shop is a busy place  - we don't want anything to happen to your possessions when you are not there with them. 

We cannot accommodate children or guests during adult classes.

Our classes appear on the Calendar and are also listed below.  Click on the Class title for a more detailed description, difficulty level, meeting dates, and to register.
