It’s starting to catch on so plan now to come in on one or all five dates in May from 10am-5pm each day.  The store will then be in Summer Hours mode and be open until 6pm to allow you time to shop afterwards, but you will need to wrap things up by closing time.  Bring your basic kit with you as supplies are not included.  Wednesday 5/1, Friday 5/10, Tuesday 5/14, Friday 5/24, or Thursday 5/30.   FREE!

***Classes start promptly at the time listed.  Please have your lovely buns in the seat and be ready to go!    Showing up late is very disruptive to the class that is already in progress.  Plan ahead for traffic or other things that might slow you down! 
If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to get into another class.  If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will forfeit your class fee. 
Classes must be paid for at the time of registration.  You are not considered registered unless a class is paid for which could affect your seat in those classes with student limits.  You may pay with cash, check or use a credit card with a $2 handling fee.  You may register over the phone and mail in a check or give us a credit card number. 
We also assume you're taking a class to enjoy a break for a few hours and learn some cool stuff without interruptions.  That said, we will now begin each class by asking you to turn off your cell phones or silence them during class.  This will enhance everyone's learnin' and enjoyment of the class at hand.
Thank you in advance for understanding.  If you have problems or questions about these policy updates, please see Patsy.
