Workshop Etiquette

  • Please turn off cell phones!
  • Arrive early enough to set up your sewing station so that the teacher may begin the class on time.
  • Bring your own equipment—extension cords, surge protectors, cutting mats, etc.  Irons and ironing boards are usually pre-arranged.
  • When the teacher is demonstrating or speaking to the group, please STOP sewing and LISTEN.  You may learn something you need to know.
  • If lunch is not provided, return from lunch at the designated time so that the teacher can continue the workshop as planned.
  • When the day is over, stop sewing when requested by the workshop facilitator so that the area can be returned as found.  Clean up your own sewing station.
