Terms and Conditions

  • We ask that you please check your diary carefully before booking!
  • Payment must be made in full at the time of booking to confirm a place on the course/workshop.
  • A booking is made when we receive your payment and in return you have received a confirmation email. Class places are on a first come first served basis and are limited to five people.
  • Payments are fully refundable up to 21 days prior to the commencement date if you should need to cancel your booking.
  • From 14 -21 days 50% of booking fee will be refunded on cancellation.  Within 14 days of class commencement date bookings are non-refundable, but please feel free to send a friend in your place by notifying us of their name in advance.
  • If we manage to re-book your place from a waiting list at the last minute you will be reimbursed 50% but this cannot be guaranteed.
  • No refund or credit can be given for classes not attended.
  • SewShed reserves the right to alter courses if necessary, and no liability is accepted if a course does not take place. In the unlikely event that a class or workshop has to be cancelled by us due to illness or unforeseen circumstances you will be notified by telephone and email as soon as possible. Your booking fee will be refunded in full by cheque, or you may transfer to another date or class / workshop of equal value if you choose.
  • Please keep us up to date with any change in your contact details after booking your class. This is our only way to notify you of any changes.
  • Occasionally we may have to cancel or re-schedule a class if it is undersubscribed. In these circumstances confirmed attendees will be contacted by phone to offer an alternative date, or reimbursed by cheque.
  • SewShed cannot accept responsibility for any travel or accommodation costs incurred due to unavoidable cancellation of a class.
  • Gift vouchers will be mailed to you on receipt of cleared payment. Gift vouchers can be redeemed by either mailing us directly or on the website to select the course of your choice.  It will be necessary to give the gift voucher details when doing this.
  • Gift vouchers are not refundable but are transferable to another person.
  • The Booking Terms and Conditions apply to all bookings made with gift vouchers. In the event of cancellation by us a replacement gift voucher will be issued.
  • Students are welcome to bring their own sewing machine to class but should ensure it is in good working order and remember to pack all attachments, power cord and foot pedal. The tutor will not be able to spend valuable teaching time servicing or mending machines that are not in working order.
  • Group bookings for parties can be made by private arrangement, and tailored to your requirements. A deposit of £10 per person is payable at time of booking.
  • Children under 13 years of age attending classes must have a responsible adult to receive them at the end of the class, or a confirmation from a parent/guardian of what arrangements are in place for supervision of your child at the end of each session. SewShed cannot be responsible for the safety of children once they have left the Studio premises.
