class policy

Sew Magarbo may change or update these policies as needed. Please refer to our website or office announcements for updates. Enrolling/Registering is an acknowledge that you have read and understood the information contained herein and agree to adhere to such terms.

please review and ask questions, it helps us help you have fun!

cancellation policy:

  • Class fees are NON-refundable and are 100% due at time of registration.

  • Please check your calendar carefully before committing to a class enrollment.

  • We appreciate as much notice as possible for cancellations. Cancellations must be made no later than 3 business days (Business Days, in this instance, refer to the hours that we are in the office, administratively speaking, managing class enrollments. Specifically, Tuesday through Saturday, excluding major holidays, between the hours of 11:00AM and 6:00 PM) BEFORE the date of your class*, in order to maintain a class credit.

  • Failure to do so means forfeiture of your class fee. If arrangements are made before the deadline, students may transfer fees, as a credit, to another class (subject to availability) or maintain a credit to use toward a future enrollment. There are no make-up classes for any classes missed. If you miss one class in a series you may not be able to continue with the series without first scheduling a private lesson ($60 per hour) to get caught up. Please keep in mind that Private Lessons are not always available. 

 

* For example, if your class is at 12:30 PM on a Saturday, Sunday or Monday, you must call or send an email to cancel your class by 6pm on the Tuesday before.

 We're happy to discuss your dilemma on a case to case basis.

In the unlikely event that class is canceled by Sew Magarbo, you can either opt to keep a credit for a future class with us, or choose to receive a full refund.

class policies:

  • Class materials lists are sent beforehand. Class details state if materials are included or not. 

  • Students are free to purchase materials from other retailers. Students who purchase materials from Sew Magarbo are offered a 10% discount.  If one needs help selecting materials, please come in for assistance before class. 

  • Due to copyright laws, students are required to purchase the pattern for class in order to participate

  • Sew Magarbo Sewing Studio accepts and encourages independent students. Registration is for a single enrollment. As such, the sewing and cutting areas are off limits to non-students during class time, including parents.  The presence of others in these areas during class time may distract students.

  • Sew Magarbo will follow the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) Inclement Weather and Emergency event policies for closing. We may be able to communicate beforehand to reschedule. Sew Magarbo Sewing & Creative Arts Studio reserves the right to decide on any exceptions.

  • If the student decides against travelling during inclement weather, store credit/refunds will be given at the studio's discretion
