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.

Sharon Wyatt will teach you tips and tricks with the rulers, so you can gain confidence in creating free motion magic for all your quilts.

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.
