Grace and Favour Sewing, Arts & Craft Workshops
What do I need to bring with me? - For some workshops materials and equipment are supplied, others you need to bring materials or you can purchase at the time of your workshop. For our full day workshops, we recommend you bring a packed lunch. We do have tea /coffee facilities, which you are welcome to use.
Can I bring my own Sewing Machine? - Unfortunately, you are unable to bring your own sewing machines to the workshops, as not all machines have the same features and functions needed for the workshops. For health and safety reasons all equipment also has to be PAT tested before it can be used in our studio. Most of the information given during our workshops is universal and can be applied to the majority of sewing machines but if when you return home, you struggle with your own machine please feel free to email for advice, we are happy to help where we can. However, we do run separate courses on a 1:1 basis for this by arrangement.
Are your workshops suitable for children? - Grace and Favour we have a special selection of Junior/Teen workshops These workshops are suitable for juniors/teens aged between 8 and 15 years. However, please check the age restrictions in the workshop description before booking your child onto one of these workshops. Unfortunately under 16's are not permitted on any of our adult workshops unless it is stated it is a junior or young persons course with appropriately qualified staff.
Where do the workshops take place? -The workshops take place in our purpose designed sewing school situated in our home and gardens at 49 Tarn Road, Little Thornton, Cleveleys.

If you have to cancel your course we will need fourteen days (14 days) notice, we will refund 50% of your workshop. If this has expired then we will not be able to offer you a refund and may not be able to offer an alternative date as these courses are specialist one of sessions, If you are not able to attend one of the dates on your course you will be expectext to catch up at your own expense and will not be offered a refund for any dates you cannot attend. The reason we have this policy is because the sanctuary still has to pay external tutor(s) and they will have made arrangements to deliver your course and will have their own out of pocket expenses.
If by chance, the workshop or course is cancelled by Grace and Favour, we will give you as much advance notice as possible. We will offer a credit voucher, transfer your booking to another workshop or issue you with a full refund by negotiation.
