What are In Home Lessons? You will be paired with a designated instructor (all teachers have been teaching with TFC for some time now) who will teach your child's class each week for 2 hours.
The class duration will be ten weeks and we can accommodate groups of 1-6 students.
We will prep and bring supplies for those 10 weeks including thread and extra machine needles but not the sewing machines. Students will be responsible for bringing their own machines, and can share machines. We recommend 2 students per one machine if sharing.
Yes! We encourage you to use your Spring 2020 class or camp credit towards class. There may still be a balance due. We are unable to accept points or other discounts at this time.
Our price is more than in studio classes because our teachers are traveling to you, we have limited teachers and time slots available, and classes are smaller.
We added extra time to our class to account for the different sewing machines that student's may need help setting up. When working in a home we have different spaces to accommodate for and want to be sure the student's have as much sewing time as possible!
Unfortunately no, we have limited teachers and time slots available for in home lessons and can only accommodate very few families. Because of this our minimum commitment is a 2 hour class, once per week for ten weeks.
