Workshop Guidelines for 2017

Workshops are special opportunities for a small group of quilters (generally between 10 to 20) to learn new patterns and new techniques, to develop deeper threads of friendship and to obtain valued instruction from the guest speaker.

Please follow these guidelines when signing up for a workshop:
-Sign up will begin at the monthly guild meeting three or more months prior to the workshop.
-Three months or more prior to the workshop, the sign up will be offered to our guild members.
-Two months prior, if the workshop is not filled, the workshop will be opened to other guilds and to the general public at an additional fee. One month prior to the workshop, if not filled, the workshop will be cancelled and payments returned.
-Only people who have signed up AND paid can attend the workshop. You are not considered signed up until your payment is received.
-Once the workshop is filled, a "waiting" sign-up sheet will be made available. If someone drops out of the class, the next person on the waiting list will be called. If you need to cancel, please do not find a replacement unless there is no one waiting.
-Once you have signed up for a workshop and you find you are unable to attend, you will not receive a refund unless your spot is filled. Please contact
Bette Gove as soon as you know you can't come and if applicable, the next person on the waiting list will be contacted. If there is no one on the waiting list, you may find your own replacement. Please advise Bette who this person is and their contact information.
