About our classes
We offer classes year round at the Children's Corner store. From a class teaching traditional English smocking to one in which you will complete a casual outfit, you will certainly find a style to suit your taste and skill level. Our teachers design garments specifically for our classroom. The process our designers take to bring a mass produced pattern to market is both time consuming and labor intensive. Therefore, many of the designs are only available in our classroom setting. In some cases, however, a class will be available for purchase of the full class fee. Contact us with any specific questions. As you look through our course offerings, note that in addition to a description of each unique class you will find the teacher's information, dates of the class, price, and skill level. We provide the following scale to help you know which class is right for you.
Level 1: Suitable for beginners
Level 2: Intermediate sewing skills
Level 3: For the more experienced
General Class Policies
Your registration includes a $25 non-refundable deposit per class. Class fee does not include the cost of supplies, unless otherwise stated.
When registering for a class online, you will be charged the full class fee.
Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you need to cancel a class more than 24 hours prior to class, you will receive the class fee less your deposit in the form of a refund or store credit.
For cancellations received less than 24 hours prior to class, your class fee paid to-date will be forfeited.
Supplies and Machines
We ask that you purchase supplies, including fabric, at the Children’s Corner store. These supplies will be discounted 10% at the time of purchase. Please let us know your purchase is for a class.
For most classes, Children’s Corner supplies the sewing machines, however, on days when more than one class meets we will notify you to bring your own machine.
