Class Cancellation Policy

Click on the name of the class to see the teacher, schedule, and other information for that class.

To reserve a place in a class, the class fee must be paid at the time you register.  Thistle Dew Quilt Shoppe (TDQS) reserves the right to cancel a class if the required minimum enrollment is not met.  Earliest notification will be given and the participant may choose either a full refund or a TDQS credit.  

If a student cannot attend a class, for whatever reason, a refund will be given only if the student notifies TDQS at least one week (7 days) before the class start date.  This is because the teacher needs at least 1 week to prepare for the class, and the teacher and Thistle Dew incur expenses to set up the class.
