The cafeteria is not to be used if a workshop is in the cafeteria. Class Angels will be asked to assist in making sure that anyone in a classroom is on the enrollment sheet. This policy will be strictly enforced. For those who would like a space to sew, empty classrooms will be made available in the evenings whenever possible. However, please don’t plan to use the apartment in the evenings as the bedrooms will be used as dorm rooms for the week. Your dorm room is always available for sewing, provided you are quiet while others are sleeping. We appreciate your understanding of the situation, and thank you for your cooperation. For all workshops, bring basic machine sewing supplies (BMSS). These basic supplies are not listed separately in each workshop list. Have these with you for ALL workshops unless the description identifies the workshop as hand sewing only. Irons and ironing surfaces will be provided in each room. You may bring your own iron if desired however due to facility limitations, the number of irons in use will be limited.
