TAKING A CLASS - IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW AND DO!

We have had a great influx of new members and I've been fielding a lot of questions so I thought it might be timely to publish information on our classes and what a student should bring to class.
  1. Unless stated otherwise - your sewing machine in good working order.  All accessories (especially the power cord!) and your manual is also important.
  2. Basic sewing/quilting notions to include - needles (new machine and hand), scissors/snips,  rotary cutter, cutting mat, rulers, marking tools, pins, etc.
  3. Iron and ironing surface
  4. Utility power cord with multiple plug-ins.
When you sign up and pay for a class you will receive a supply list with all pertinent information from the instructor.  If you sign up at a meeting you will be handed a hard copy of the supply list.  If you sign up by email you can either pick up the hard copy at the next meeting or you can receive it via email.  Prior to class I try to email everyone with updates and another copy of the supply list but that is not guaranteed.  The supply list is NOT available on the web as it is proprietary property of the instructor and should only be available to those who have paid for the class.  I will always gladly email another list to you.

It is important that you read the supply list well in advance of class so that you can procure all of the required materials for a successful class.  If you have questions please contact the Guild Programs Coordinator directly, or through the "contact us" page, and we will contact the instructor.  It is not good policy to have many different people contacting the instructors.

Preparation is the key to having an enjoyable and successful class experience!!
