WHAT IS COVERED IN A BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE SEWING COURSE?
In our Beginner session, we spend 3 classes on sewing machine, hand and machine sewing techniques, fabric, needle and thread knowledge, and remaining 3 classes on making a project from a drawing a concept to creating a pattern to constructing a project.
Intermediate session covers 3 classes of clothing alterations and remaining 3 classes an advanced pattern making with emphasis on necklines, armholes, and sleeves.
DO I NEED TO BRING SUPPLIES TO THE CLASS?
For the first class of any 6-week courses, a student does not need to to bring any supplies, we’ve got anything you need! We encourage for you to bring your own sewing machine, as it is best to learn on your own equipment (otherwise you can rent a machine from our school). At the first class, we will let you know what you will need to bring for the remaining sessions, based on what we are studying.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO MISS A CLASS?
If you have to miss a class, while the make-up classes are not guaranteed, we will explore all the options to get you caught up, whether by joining a different session, meeting a little earlier before the class, or connecting thru email for practicing exercises at home.
CRASH COURSE AND DROP-IN SEWCIAL HAVE MINIMUM OF 3 STUDENTS TO RUN A CLASS. WHAT HAPPENS IF NOT ENOUGH STUDENTS SIGNED UP?
If there would not be a sufficient amount of students to run a session, all enrolled students will be automatically transferred to the following month’s session.
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
If a session for which a student signed up is no longer convenient to attend, the student has an option of joining a different session, if there is availability, or forfeit the session altogether. We do not offer refunds for missed classes or entire sessions, unless there are extenuating circumstances. In such situations, the refunds are offered at the Zoya Designs’ Sewing School’s discretion. If the group class is canceled for any reason, full refunds will be offered to all signed up students.
