  • Workshops are reserved for NSQG Members each new fiscal year, from June through the first of October. After October 1st, non-members may register for workshops anytime, providing there is an opening. NSQG members pay $45.00 for full day workshops and $25.00 for half day workshops. The non-member price for workshops is $55.00 for full day workshops and $35.00 for half day workshops.
  • No seat in any workshop is reserved until payment has been received.
  • Please come early enough to be set up for the start of the class. Doors will open at 9:00 AM; class begins at 9:30 AM unless otherwise indicated.
  • Be prepared. This includes having all items on the supply list, sewing machine in good working order, and basic sewing supplies. It is also a good idea to bring an extension cord, power strip, a small iron and an ironing surface that may be shared with other students.
  • If you need to cancel your attendance in a workshop, you will receive a full refund only if your spot can be filled.
  • Lunch is on your own. Most venues will allow you to eat in the classroom which means you can brown bag it. Some venues have a refrigerator available. An hour is built into the class time for a lunch break, which is flexible and could affect the end time of the workshop.
  • Cell phones should be silenced during class. If you need to make or take a call, please exit the classroom.
  • Visitors are very distracting to the teacher and other students, and should not be in the classroom.
  • If you know you have to leave class early, please try to sit in the back of the classroom.
  • In consideration of others, please refrain from wearing perfumes.
