What you will learn:
  • Mending is back in style!  Come to our workshop to learn some creative ways to mend your jeans, sweaters or anything else.  If you're not into mending, the techniques are perfect for making a unique art piece.  You can choose to work by hand or machine.

Workshop Policies:

  • In order to ensure that each participant receives enough attention to learn and complete a project in the allotted time frame, our workshops are limited in the number of participants, based on the workshop being taught unless otherwise stated. A minimum age of 16+ is required for all of our adult workshops. Materials and supplies are not included in the workshop fee unless otherwise noted.
  • Safety is our first concern at Oh Look, Fabric! Should a participant not adhere to the instructor’s instructions and/or be a disruption for other participants, the participant may be removed from the workshop and the workshop fee will be forfeited.

Payment and Cancellation Policies:

  • Spaces in our workshops are limited, therefore to reserve a seat in any of our workshops a 100% non-refundable deposit must be received at the time of registration. You may register for a class in person at the store or on our website at Cancellations must be made a minimum 72 hours prior to the workshop start date; you will receive an in-store credit. Cancellations made less than 72 hours of the workshop start date, forfeit their fee entirely.  Also, no refunds/credits will be issued for "no-shows", due to illness, travel, etc.
