Sign ups and Safety
Space in all Classes is given on a first come/first served basis. Please register your child online to secure your spot. You may choose “pay by check” if you do not want to check out via PayPal. You may bring your check to the first class. If you have a gift certificate to redeem, please choose “Pay by Check” as well. Typically Learn to Sew classes run for 4 weeks. Once your child has completed this class, they may continue that day/time as a Sewing Studio class, or enter any other Sewing Studio class that has space. Studio classes are offered in 3-4 month blocks. If you join the class mid-session, your cost will be prorated.
Sewing Classes are recommended for ages 7 and up. You know your child best. At The Makery, we use Sewing Machines, sharp scissors and pins. We stress and teach safety every step of the way. Your child must have the maturity and ability to listen, follow directions and use these items safely. If we find your child isn’t ready to handle these responsibilities, you will be refunded for the remaining classes and asked to wait to return until they are ready.
The Makery staff teaches students how to use the sewing machines and sewing notions (scissors, pins, iron, etc) in a safe way. However, occasional pin pricks and accidents do happen. If your child has a minor injury, first aid will be administered. By registering your child for classes at The Makery Sewing Studio, you are doing so with this knowledge and understanding. By registering your child for class, you are agreeing that you will not hold The Makery LLC, it’s owner or contracted employees liable for any injury or accident that may occur to your child.
Cancellations and Missed Classes
We follow the Scituate Public Schools policy on Snow Cancellations. If the Scituate Public Schools are closed due to weather, there will be no regularly scheduled classes that day. The session will be extended by one week in this case, or your child will be given make up opportunities.
We are closed for Scituate Public Schools Vacation weeks (Winter, Feb and April) and most national holidays. We may offer special vacation week workshops of events that will require a separate sign up. A list of scheduled dates off is in the class description online for each class.
If you know you will be missing a class, please let us know and we will do our best to find another time for your child to come. If your child misses class due to illness, email us to find out days and times you can come in for a make-up class. Refunds/Discounts will not be given for missed classes. Every effort will be made to try to accommodate your child for a make up class as a courtesy. There are multiple classes offered 6 days a week, so as long as your schedule is flexible, you should have no trouble finding a make up time.
When you register your child for a slot in Kids Sewing Studio, you own that spot for that session (Fall, Winter, Spring). Payments are expected to be prompt. Payment is broken down into 4 equal payments. The first payment is due upon registration (or first class) and the next payments are due the first of each month of the session. For Fall, Oct 1, Nov 1 and Dec1. You will be responsible for paying any fabric charges monthly as well. You will receive an email invoice for these charges.
Sewing Studio students are welcome to make up any classes they miss. Email me ahead of time for the schedule of openings. If you wish to cancel your membership, please know that a 2 week notice is required in writing (email) in order to do so. You will be given an opportunity to keep your day/time for the next session. If you do not inform us that you are keeping your spot, it may be filled during sign ups for that session.
