Progams & Workshops - Archives

Members are given priority to register in workshops. If a workshop has not been filled by two weeks prior to the workshop, then it will be opened to non-members.

In general, workshop fees are non-refundable unless a workshop is cancelled. The number of participants in the classes is limited to 20 (subject to the teacher’s preferences). When the class is full, a waiting list is started. Occasionally there is a small fee for a pattern, payable to the teacher.

Workshops are scheduled to take place at the Quilted Cottage in the Block Plaza at the corner of Center and Gratiot in Saginaw.
