Classes
BEST TO ATTEND REGULARLY SCHEDULED CLASSES.
If space is available, we will offer one make-up class per session a child is enrolled. We do not guarentee a make-up class, especially during the pandemic and with our classes being full. We do not roll make-up classes into new sessions. If space allows, make-ups will be offered to those who report absences PRIOR to class. For new students, a pre-class will be used as a make-up class. IT IS

Camps and Vacation Weeks
There are no make-up days during our summer or vacation week programs. We will not be responsible for projects not completed due to “unreported” absences during a program week. We will hold on to unfinished projects until a student’s next enrollment at Sew Easy.

Weekly Latecomers (For private school students or special circumstances)
If your student is tardy to class each week because of a later school release, we welcome you to come for “make-up minutes” for the time missed. Parent keeps track of missed minutes and accumulates minutes to create make-up classes. Schedule prior.

Pre-classes will be considered a class in the event a student is absent during a session or beginning after a session has begun.

Sew Easy will be open for regular business hours during inclement weather. We do not follow public school closing schedules. Though we are open for business, students are not obligated to attend. Attending a regularly scheduled sewing program is at the discretion of the parents. We will contact parents via email 1.5 hours prior to a class in the event conditions warrant us to close our shop. In the event our shop is closed and class is cancelled we will not refund or hold a make-up class.

Adult classes
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice. Of course, if you can’t make a class at the last minute you can always send someone in your place. Just let us know whom to expect!

Children’s Classes
Refunds for children’s classes and camps will be given up until one week prior to the start of a program.

Covid-19
There will be no refunds once a program has begun and a child becomes ill. Nor will refunds be given if a family member has been exposed to Covid and the child needs to unenroll in a program that begins less than our 1 week policy.

With regards to the financial impact on our small business being shut down from Covid-19, we have asked families to contribute their child’s tuition to help us keep Sew Easy for kids operating. We appreciate all who have graciously said “yes”.

For those who have declined, we completely understand and will figure out how to credit this sewing time with classes for the kids.

A pre-class is a one time private tutorial for new students enrolled in our program.Pre-classes are a necessary prerequisite for classes, camps, and vacation weeks. Don’t worry we will work with your child’s schedule!

6 Week Sessions
We will email all new students with a pre-class date that coordinates with student’s schedule. A pre-class will be considered a class in the event a student is absent during a session or beginning after a session has begun. Don’t worry we will work with your child’s schedule!

Summer and Vacation Weeks
Pre-classes for weekly Summer and vacation week programs.

IN MASS (ONLY)
are always on a Tuesday promptly at 7:30AM during the week of their camp. If a child misses the pre-class due to absence, Sew Easy reserves the right to cancel the student’s remainder of the camp week. No refunds or credits will be given. If staff is available to hold a private pre-class once camp has begun (Monday), payment of $50 will be required for this lesson.

Siblings and friends will not be able to attend pre-class at 7:30AM. Past students are to arrive at 9:30AM
