      Contact Us

      The Sewing Club does not have a phone number.

      If you have any questions, reach out using this form or send us a message over Instagram.

      Accessibility

      While the building and workstations are wheelchair accessible, the washroom unfortunately is not. There is an accessible washroom in Hollywood park across the street.

      We have machines with hand controls (no pedal required). Please let us know in the checkout notes if you require this type of machine so we can ensure it's set up for you.

      If there's anything else we can do to accommodate you, please let us know in the checkout notes or contact us before the workshop.

      Cancellation Policy

      This policy is effective for purchases made on or after April 8th, 2024. 

      A note for the leather coin purse workshop:  If you choose to add embossing, please note that the cost of the kit ($90) is final sale, but you can pick it up from the shop to make at home if you cancel your workshop spot.

      Our workshops are held in small groups and usually sell out far in advance. It can be very difficult to fill a cancelled spot on short notice. In order to ensure we can continue offering small group sewing workshops, the following cancellation policy applies to all workshop purchases. 

      We understand people get sick, child care cancels, and other emergencies come up. We ask that you please read this policy before booking a workshop, and understand that we must adhere to it. Please be understanding of our limitations as a small, independently run business, and don't ask us to make an exception to our policy.

      If you can provide over 48 hours notice:

      If you need to cancel your spot and are able to give over 48 hours' notice, you will receive a digital store credit that can be used for a future workshop, to shop online, or to shop in person. Store credits never expire, and must be issued to the email used to book the workshop.

      To cancel, contact us.

      If you cancel within 48 hours of the start time:

      It is very difficult for us to fill workshop spots on short notice. If you cancel within 48 hours or do not show for the workshop, you are not eligible for a store credit, and you are not able to pick up workshop materials.

      If you are able to find someone to take your place in the workshop, contact us and we can try to arrange that they take your place. This is not guaranteed, especially if they require any custom pattern adjustments.

      To cancel, contact us.

      Arriving Late

      If you arrive one hour (60 minutes) or more after the scheduled workshop time, that will be considered a no-show, and you will not be able to join the workshop, receive a store credit, or a refund.

      Multi-Day Workshops

      Partial refunds are not available if you can't finish your workshop. If you can't attend the remaining workshop dates, contact us and we can arrange for you to finish the project during a co-working session or take it home.
