SAFETY: All parent/guardians of students attending classes/camps at sew fun!  are to read our Policies and the Release Waiver and Indemnification Agreement.

REGISTRATION: Whenever possible, we encourage secure online payments for class/camp registration. Please check your child’s schedule before registering as payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. ​​​ CLASSES- A registration deposit is required to reserve a space in a weekly class (registration fee, first month’s tuition, and a student workbook and patterns). CAMPS- Full payment is required to reserve a space in summer camp.

TUITION: Tuition for sewing classes can be paid by the semester or by the month. A monthly recurring payment will be made to the same credit card used for your first month of tuition. Only credit cards are accepted online. We accept credit cards, cash and checks for payments, by the semester, in our studio. Please understand that when registering for a class, you are committing to pay for the entire semester’s tuition. In the event of an early withdrawal, you will be required to pay the remaining balance for the semester.

  • A monthly recurring payment of $75 will be made on the 1st of each month (October – May.)
  • Tuition fees are based on the number of classes in the school year, not the number of classes in a month. Tuition fees are based on 36 weeks of instruction- 8.5 payments and have been prorated to include holidays. As a result, tuition is the same each month.
  • Tuition is not prorated for classes missed. Please see our policy regarding attendance / make-up classes.
  • A $25 late fee will be accessed for any payments not received before the 5th of each month. Parents/Guardians are responsible for contacting sew fun! if the credit card used for tuition payments needs to be changed. Any check returned for insufficient funds will be subject to a $25 fee, and other collection and attorney’s fees as may be provided by law.
  • Tuition and registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

COMMITMENT: Our sewing classes are divided into 2 semester courses. Please understand that when registering for a class, you are committing for an entire semester. We ask that you discuss the importance of keeping commitments with your child before registering for sewing classes.

ATTENDANCE / MAKE-UP CLASSES: Attendance is very important for the success of each student. Please commit to being prompt each week/day upon arrival and dismissal of class/camp. Students should do their best to attend class each week/day. CLASSES- In order to maintain our student teacher ratio of 4/1, we are not able to allow make-up classes during our weekly classes. Additionally: 1) students cannot have more than 1 make-up class per semester.  2) make-up classes are first come, first serve. 3) make-up classes are to be requested in advance as make-up classes are not for no-shows. Parents/Guardians are responsible for contacting sew fun! about make-up classes. CAMPS- We are not able to provide make-up classes for camp.

ILLNESS: If your child is ill or feeling under the weather, please refrain from sending your child to class/camp. We reserve the right to restrict admission or send a child home, when we believe a child is ill or risks the health or well-being of other children.

STUDENT DROP-OFF / PICK-UP: Parents/Guardians are to accompany their child to and from the studio no more than 10 minutes before the scheduled class/camp begins. Our pick-up time is no more than 5 minutes after class/camp. Parents will be charged an additional fee if students/campers are dropped off or picked up more than 10 minutes early/late. $8 (11 – 29 minutes) and $15 (30 – 45 minutes.)

MATERIALS: CLASSES- You will be informed in advance when materials are due for sewing classes. CAMPS- Materials are needed on the first day. Materials are not included in the cost of our camps. However, you may select the option for “Camp + Materials” during camp registration.

FULL CLASS / CAMP: When a class/camp is full, registration will be closed. You may add your child to the waiting list. If we have any cancellations or add a new class, we will draw from the waiting list in the order that registration was received.

EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION: It is the sole responsibility of the Parent/Guardian to ensure that sew fun! has current contact information for medical and non-medical emergencies. All Parents/Guardians are required to complete our Registration/Permission Form upon initial registration, and include all relevant medical and contact information. Parents/Guardians are to promptly notify us if there is a change in mailing address, telephone number, email address, medical information, authorized caregivers, and emergency contact information. ​

MEDICAL: For your child’s safety, Parents/Guardians are responsible for providing detailed information on our Registration/Permission Form regarding all medical conditions (such as allergies, diabetes, etc.) as well as behavioral and/developmental conditions (such as ADHD, autism, etc.). We require all children who are prescribed an epi-pen, inhaler, or diabetic monitor carry it with them at all times while on the premises, no exceptions.

We exercise reasonable care and precautions to minimize the risk of food-related allergic reactions during summer camp snack time, including implementing and communicating, a no-nut snack policy; however, sew fun! does not in any way ensure that the risk of food-related allergic reactions are completely mitigated, nor does it assume liability for any food-related allergic reactions. Parents/Guardians assume full responsibility for their child’s allergies and medical conditions.
