Sewing Lessons in Chesapeake, VA


New class coming to A Different Touch. Kimberbell Dealer Exclusives Volume 2 is an amazing collection of 13 technique-based projects. This year-long club program features 13 Kimberbell Cute, technique-based projects. (See the picture at right) These projects are exclusive to this program, meaning they will never be offered as retail products. All of the projects in Volume 2 are designed for a 5x7 hoop or smaller. You'll be delighted with the additional sizes and options included with several of the designs, and projects that incorporate both sewing and embroidery. We will offer this as a hands on, sew the project while you are in class adventure. Individual classes will be priced at $20.00, pre-register for the whole year, 13 individual projects, and pay only $200.00. Kits will be available for each class for an additional fee. Classes will begin on Sat. May 12 and meet from 9:30-2:30. Classes will meet the second Saturday of each month. Call for more information.

Class Policy

It has always been the policy of A Different Touch to pay for classes when you sign up for them. For a class to be offered during the daytime, there must be 3 students signed up and the class prepaid. For an evening or Sunday class there must be 5 students signed up and the class prepaid. If you cannot attend the class and you cancel one week prior to the date, you can have the class fee moved to another class or receive a refund. If you cancel after the allowable time, there will be no refund. It will be the instructor's decision to move the class fee to her next class.
We currently have several bees during the day and in the evening and we have the same requirements for attending bees. If you attend you must sign up and pay at the time of registration. If the bee or class is cancelled we need that information so we may contact you and let you know about the changes. If you fail to pre-register and the class or bee does not meet minimum attendance everyone will miss out on that opportunity. When you pay for a class the commitment is there to attend. If you are a regular member at any of our bees or classes, please make sure you call and sign up. All instructors will be grateful, knowing whether to be prepared or they have time off.
