Cancellation Policy
In the event of cancellation, we must have 48 hours notice for a full refund. After 48 hours, no refund will be performed. 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.
