Registration begins Monday, September 9th at 10:00 AM.
We hate to disappoint you by canceling a class. We cancel classes when we don't have enough students. Our policy is to make a decision about canceling a class three days in advance of the date of the class. Please register earlier than this if possible, to help us hold the class you'd like to take!

Materials for Classes
Besides the charges listed in this newsletter, most classes also require that the student purchase or bring supplies. A confirmation/supply list is given at the time of registration. The supply needs are included on that sheet. Some classes may also have a supply or kit fee. See below.
Supply and Kit Fees
As you can see from the class listings, many classes have a supply or a kit fee. These fees are payable to the instructor on the day of the class. Most of our instructors are not able to take credit cards for these fees, so we ask that you use cash or checks for payment. Your cooperation is appreciated!
Tools for Classes
We encourage students to purchase or bring their own tools for classes. However, we do have basic tools to loan out to students for use in class. Please arrange for this in the shop prior to the start of the class.
Traffic in our region can be awful! Please allow yourself plenty of time to get to class. Late arrivals make it difficult for our other students and instructors.
When Fairfax Co. schools are closed, classes are cancelled unless notified otherwise. If it snows on a weekend, we will notify you early if class is cancelled.
If you cancel at least 3 days prior to the class, a check for the cost of the class minus $5.00 will be given. A cancellation without 3 days notice can't be refunded.
This newsletter of classes has been compiled and scheduled by Beverlee Stafford. If you would like to propose a class, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
