Just for You

Plan a class for you and 2-3 or more of your friends. It can be something from the current schedule, something we have offered in the past or something that you have always wanted to try or know more about. Give us a call with your ideas and times and we will plan a date. Please allow 3-4 weeks for planning, scheduling a date and staffing. It's that easy to have a fun day with friends.

Class Practices for Your Success

Preregistration and prepayment is required for all classes to allow the instructor to be properly prepared and to allow us to have proper staffing in the shop. Registering one week in advance of the class date is preferable. There is a supply list for most classes that you will be given at the time of payment for the class. The class fee is for the instructor only; all other supplies are additional. Don't hesitate to register for a class due to weather; if area schools are closed we will reschedule the class.

All supplies are available at Village Fabrics & Crafts. We try to keep all items in stock to make your preparation and shopping easier and greatly appreciate it when you purchase your supplies from us. If you have some supplies at home, you are welcome to bring them.

Store credit only for cancellations 48 hours prior to class and no credits or refunds will be given for “no shows.”

For your convenience our classroom is fully equipped with irons, ironing boards, cutting mats and rulers. We also have Bernina sewing machines available for your use. Please reserve one when you register for your class-first come, first serve.


I Want to Learn . . . . . . . .

You fill in the blank, what would you like to learn? Bring along at least 2-3 of your friends and we will schedule a class just for you. You select the project, date and time, give us as much notice as possible to work it into our regular schedule, prepare and we'll have a date! You can select from classes listed on the current schedule (if the date doesn't fit your group), something offered in a previous schedule or just ask if you have any other interests; we'll do our best to accommodate.
