Workshop Terms & Conditions

Workshop Booking Info:

All sewing or craft workshops must be paid for prior to the event.  All workshops must be booked online via the Sewcialising website (https://www.sewcialising.com). Please note that all bookings will be pending until funds have been cleared.

If a class is fully booked, Sewcialising will add a section for a 'waiting list' so people can enquire this way. The people on the waiting list will then be notified as and when new workshop dates will be announced.

Corona Info:

Due to Covid-19, Sewcialising currently limit classes to 4-5 attendees per workshop and each class lasts 2-3 hours long and have 1-2 tutors.  The attendees will also need to complete a 'Corona Virus Symptoms Questionnaire' prior to the event taking place. 

It is desirable (but not compulsory) for attendees to do a Corona Test prior to attending a workshop.  This is to protect themselves, other workshop attendees and Sewcialising as a business. The Sewcialising Team also do regular Corona Tests to protect their customers and the business.

Each attendee will have their temperature checked upon arrival and everyone will be required to use the Track and Trace QR code prior to sitting down for a sewing or craft workshop. 

Please also note that all attendees must use the hand sanitisers on arrival and wear a mask at all times throughout the course.  

Refund Policy:

If attendees are unable to attend their booked class for any particular reason, they will receive a full refund if they give a minimum of 10 days notice prior to the event. 
If there are less than 10 days until the workshop, attendees have the option to transfer to a future/different class or date or they can receive a credit note that entitles them to use the same value in the shop or on other future Sewcialising workshops.
If a cancellation is made with less than 3 days notice of the workshop, Sewcialising are unable to offer a refund, move attendees to another class or offer a credit note. However, attendees can always send a friend to take their place, if they let us know of the name change.

Non attendance or severe lateness of workshops due to illness, personal reasons or traffic do not provide the right for a refund or a credit note.  If an attendee is unable to attend a booked workshop, a curtesy call or email is required.  Sewcialising will however consider each circumstance and will take such action that we consider to be reasonable and fair.

If attendees have signed up to a weekly or monthly class, where they will make a particular project across various class sessions, Sewcialising will try to offer them a replacement workshop session if one is available.  Alternatively they may wish to take a private tuition in addition to their course fee to catch up with their fellow class attendees.

Sewcialising always advise attendees to check their diaries carefully before signing up to a workshop to avoid any future cancellations, but do understand that things can crop up at the last minute.  Please just call or email us explaining your situation and we will do our best to help so all parties are happy.

Workshop Attendees:

In order to proceed with a workshop, Sewcialising require a minimum of 4 attendees.  We may choose to still run a workshop with less attendees, but Sewcialising does reserve the right to reschedule the date if we wish to do so.  Attendees will get notification of this prior to the workshop date, should this occur.

Workshop Cancellations or Postponements:

Sewcialising will give 24 hours notice should a workshop be cancelled or postponed for whatever unavoidable reason.  If attendees cannot make the future date or this class has been discontinued, attendees will be entitled to a full refund or they may put the value towards a different future workshop.  If a tutor should fall ill on the day of a workshop or the shop needed to be closed for whatever unavoidable reason, Sewcialising will do their best to reschedule a suitable future workshop date or ensure all booked attendees are happy by offering a refund or credit note.

Workshop Conduct:
Throughout a workshop, all attendees and tutors should treat each other with respect and be helpful and kind. Violence, indecent language or behaviour will not be tolerated at any one time.  Sewcialising have the right to ask a workshop attendee to leave the class if they feel they are disruptive or rude towards the tutor or other class attendees.
