Refund Policy


To be fair to those who sign up for classes and events particularly those on the waiting lists we have a cancellation and refund policy for class registrations.

Full registration payment is required to reserve your spot in a class or event. Cancellations made more than 1 week in advance of the class or event will receive a 50% refund. For cancellations made less than 7 days in advance no refund will be given. Transfers may be granted at the discretion of management for a fee of $30 for classes of 4 hours or less, or $50 for classes of more than 4 hours in length. If we have to cancel a class due to low enrolment you will receive a full refund or a free transfer to another class or event.

For custom parties we do not issue refunds. If the party is cancelled with at least 3 weeks notice we will issue a credit to use against any of our offerings or products.


Products can be returned for store credit within 30 days of receipt of your goods. No returns on scissors or cut merchandise e.g. fabric by the metre. Damaged or defective goods can be returned for replacement, refund or store credit. We will refund the shipping costs in the instance that your goods are defective.

Sewing machines: returns can be made on unopened boxes within 15 days of purchase. Within 15 days opened boxes can be returned for a 15% restocking fee. No returns on damaged machines. The warranty on new machines covers parts and labour for 2 years, electrical defects for 2 years, and manufacturer's defects for 25 years.


Minors/Youth in classes:

For youth classes: We will require a parent contact form to be completed prior to dropping off your child for their class or camp. You will find the link to the online form on the webpage for the class.

For regular classes (not specifically for youth): If you would like to register unaccompanied minor (under 18 years old) please check with us before booking. We require teachers of unaccompanied minor's to have completed a criminal record check. Otherwise a parent or guardian may be asked to accompany the child for the duration of the class, or you may be told that the class is not suitable for youth to attend.
