Wednesday mornings           Sewing Group                        9.30 to 12 noon

Christine

This sewing group is where you come along with your projects and machines and sew in a friendly atmosphere with others that have similar interests. Be a beginner or more experienced all are welcome to come along and sew in a very friendly atmosphere.

Please note you will need a pattern as we do not do pattern drafting, for beginners look for the easy patterns available from all major pattern suppliers. Christine will help with adjusting patterns to make certain that they will fit.

Thursday 7th                  Look and Learn Club                               from 10am

 

            Our aim is to hold an informal and relaxed friendly meeting. We are hoping that ladies will bring along sewing items to show, and to hopefully inspire us all.

Everyone working here does enjoy these sessions and hope that you all do as well.  We will have our samples for the coming month’s classes to show and if time would just slow down we may even get the opportunity to sew for ourselves and show these items as well – no promises though...

If there is something new in the market place and we know about it, we will show it, or if we don’t know and you mention it we will endeavour to find out more for you.

If you are having a problem, chances are someone else had the same thing so please ask and hopefully we or someone at the meeting can help.

 

Afterwards stay around for morning tea/coffee.

 

Cost is a minimum of $2 which goes towards morning tea.

Booking is necessary and class size will be limited.

CLASS BOOKINGS and REFUNDS:

This is a problem for all organisations which runs classes. Universities and TAFE colleges have the rule that your place is not reserved until fees have been paid in full. Ocean Keys Sewing Centre will accept a minimum deposit of 50% to reserve your place with the balance to be paid on the day.

If you must cancel, and do so at least 4 days prior to the class starting we will issue a store credit less a $5.00 cancellation fee. This gives us time to fill your place if possible and to organise teachers and staff rosters. We require a minimum of 3 people per class.

Ocean Keys Sewing Centre has the right to cancel classes 48hrs prior to commencement if below the minimum number of students and a full refund shall be issued.

Please book early to avoid disappointment.

When you have registered for your class a list of requirements shall be given or emailed when available.

Would you or a friend like to receive this class list by e-mail? Simply e-mail your address to oceankeyssewing@bigpond.com.au. Simply ask to be placed on the class information list.

No longer wish to receive these e-mails simply email your address to me and ask to be removed from the list.

My e-mail list will not be given or sold to anyone. It is only for use only by Ocean Keys Sewing Centre.
