Refund/Cancellation Policy

Up to 48 hours before class: Full refund is granted only if we can fill your space in the class. We keep a waiting list and will call on your behalf. If we cannot fill your space, you will only be refunded 50% of your deposit.

Within 48 hours before class: No refunds will be issued within 48 hours of the class starting. If you can find someone to fill your space, we’ll gladly accept them and they can pay you (acting as your refund).

This deposit/cancellation policy is not designed to deter people from making class reservations at Five Eighth Seams. Rather, it enables us to be a better business in regards to filling our class capacity. Many times sewers are turned away after a class fills and if a cancellation occurs, it results in loss of revenue for our dedicated instructors who’ve made special arrangements to be at the store outside of their normal working hours.
