Frequently Asked Questions
How long do we have to take the class? -Your 4-Class Pass will expire 6 months from purchase date. Unfinished projects will only be stored through class expiration date.
What if my child is not 8 years old yet? -Students must be at least 8 years of age to participate., NO EXCEPTIONS.
What if I need to cancel my Sewing 101 class? -Refunds for Sewing 101 will be granted within 30 days of purchase date
What if I/my child has never done anything like this before? – That’s ok! We expect beginners! You will learn all about the sewing machine, then move on to complete a fabric & cutting lesson. During the last 2 sessions you will sew together your very own Reversible Tote Bag.
May I stay with my child during the class? – At Fashion Camp, we make sure students stay focused, with an instructor to guide them through all lessons. We feel when parents or guardians are present, children tend to be distracted and their attention is split. Their concentration and confidence level goes down. You are welcome to check in on your child, but we suggest students take classes independently. If you feel strongly about staying with your child, you are welcome to sign up for the class and participate in the lessons!
