Cancellations must be made up to two weeks before camp starts. There is a $30 cancellation fee that you may apply to future classes or camps. Cancellations made after the two weeks prior to camp will receive no refunds. If for any reason the heartfelt craft shop needs to cancel a camp, parents will be notified 7 days before the camp start date and a full refund will be made.
Fall classes begin August 28th and end December 12. There are 4 tuition payments in the Fall semester. First one due upon registration, then on the 5th day of the months of September, October and November.
Winter-Spring classes begin January 4 and end June 18. There are 6 tuition payments in the Winter-Spring semester. If you are new, first one due upon registration, then on the 5th day of the months of February, March, April, May and June. If you are returning from the Fall semester, payments are on the 5th of January, February, March, April, May and June.
Tuition is a leveled fee which is calculated based on the number of classes held in the semester, then divided into the number of months in the semester.
There is currently no late fee charged for payments made after the due date. Continuing timely payments from all will insure that no late fee policy becomes necessary. In some individual cases of chronic lateness, a $15 per month fee may be added to subsequent billings.
Regular attendance is important for any student serious about her/his learning experience. Please check the calendar for “no sew” days due to holidays.
There are no refunds for missed classes. Make-up classes are available for absences due to illness or family emergencies. Please notify me of your absence and check the website for make-up class availability. You may sign up to attend a make up class online. There are no make ups for missed make ups.
This is a year round program. Students who sign up in the Fall semester and wish to continue in the Winter-Spring semester do not need to re-register. A student may withdraw at any time during the year with no penalty. Withdrawals before the end of the year date will result in students who have not completed the program. Students may take their patterns book which was paid at registration. Please notify me 2 weeks prior to withdrawal date. There will be no tuition refunds for any unused classes for the month of withdrawal.
All supplies will be provided by The Heartfelt Craft Shop. Should a students want to bring their own fabric, there will be no deductions from tuition. Students using Kids Can Sew program must have their own patterns book and due to copyright infringement laws The Heartfelt Craft Shop is not able to duplicate patterns from books nor allow students to share the patterns.
It is my goal to provide casual, enjoyable classes. However, behavior that compromises class safety or interferes with the teaching process cannot be tolerated. Parents of any students unable or unwilling to conduct themselves appropriately will be duly notified. If behavior problems persist, the students in question will be dropped from enrollment, with no tuition refunds for any unused classes for that month.
Enrollment in a class at The Heartfelt Craft Shop implies an understanding that safety practices are taught and enforced in the studio at all times. Registration is not complete unless a parent/guardian has signed the safety disclaimer on the registration form. Any student unable or unwilling to adhere to safety practices will be dropped from class.
Sewing of clothing requires taking body measurements to determine pattern sizes, which involves superficial physical contact. Measurements are taken over the student’s clothing and a restroom is provided for complete privacy when trying on sewing projects. Please notify the instructor of any special sensitivities on the part of a child or parent in this regard.
The safety of our Heartfelt families is my priority, so when there is inclement weather, classes will be canceled. You will be notified by e-mail when this happens.
The first class canceled due to snow will not be rescheduled. Snow make up classes will be rescheduled after the second canceled “snow day”, i.e. if two Saturdays are canceled for snow, one Saturday will be made up. If more than one class has been canceled due to snow, then make-up options may be presented to students and families on a class-by-class basis depending on the heartfelt craft shop’s availability. Missed make-up classes will not be rescheduled.
When possible, The Heartfelt Workshop will hold a make-up week when classes are canceled due to snow. Classes will be held at their regularly scheduled time and date during this make-up week. You will be informed of this make-up week if it occurs.
Although The Heartfelt Workshop will make every effort to make-up all canceled classes during the winter session, it cannot guarantee that all make-ups will occur. The Heartfelt Workshop cannot provide refunds for canceled classes due to inclement weather.
