Class List, Term 2 2006

 

Welcome to the new-look Metro Sewing Centre, Werribee!  We are pleased to announce that we now have a wide range of patchwork fabrics, and a good selection of quilting supplies.  And a great schedule of classes to suit all levels!

 

bulletPhone bookings will be taken,(Tel 03 94722626) but to secure your place in the class you will need to pay a 20% deposit.  See the last page for terms and conditions.

 

bulletA class requirements list is available for all the following classes.  Please let us know which you are interested in, and we will give you a requirements list. 

 

bulletThere are three levels of class difficulty: A, B, and C.

 

bulletLevel A classes are for beginners.  Time will be taken to explain the basics.  Level AA are rather easier, and the simplest of all are Level AAA, in which the basics are pretty much all that is covered!
bulletLevel B classes are suitable for those with a little experience, who already know the basics but who want to extend their skills.
bulletLevel C classes are for those with plenty of experience, who want to make a more advanced quilt.

 

The classes will run in conjunction with school terms.  So Term 2 classes will start the week of 10 April, and run until 15 June.

 

If you have any requests for classes, or if you would like to do one of the classes listed but at a different time, please let us know!  We have a few gaps in the schedule that we would love to fill!

Terms and Conditions

 

You are invited to leave your name and phone number/s as an expression of interest in a course, but your place in the class is only secured by a deposit of at least 20% of the class cost.  If you cancel more than 7 days before the class starts, your deposit will be refunded.  If you cancel less than 7 days before the class starts, your deposit will become store credit.  The minimum class size for all classes is three people.  If we don't have enough by 24 hours before the class starts, anyone who has paid a deposit will be called to be told the class has been cancelled.  Your deposit will be refunded if we cancel the class.  The remainder of the class fee must be paid before the start of the first class.
