Many of the classes we offer require you to purchase a 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!

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.
