The Edwardian Needle offers classes available to those who are interested.

We request that students bring all of the basic tools necessary to classes. If additional lighting and/or magnification is necessary, please bring that too. If possible, try to arrive a few minutes before class time to get set up and relaxed before class begins.

Students may cancel attendance in any class (except Canvas Embellishment = 6 weeks notice) three weeks before class and receive a full deposit refund. Less than three weeks notice may require the forfeit of some part of the retainer fee.
