Grace and Favour Sewing & 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. We are close to a Tesco express and there are food outlets and restaurant/pub on site. You will be spoilt for choice!
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.
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.
Where do the workshops take place? -The workshops take place in our purpose designed sewing school situated in Marsh Mill Village, Thornton-Cleveleys. Our sewing studio is a beautiful and inspiring creative space. For photographs of our studio and to see workshops in action, please visit our Facebook page.
Booking & Cancellation policy
How do I book? - The easiest way to secure your place on our workshops is to book online. Browse through the Workshops section and click on those that interest you. This will take you to the full workshop description where you can select the date of your workshop and add to your basket. You can also call into our shop Grace & Favour Fabrics and pay in person with cash or credit/debit card. Full payment is required at time of booking, unless by prior agreement.
What if I can’t make the workshop?
Cancellation and refund policy - A full, cleared payment is required prior to attending our workshops. If you find yourself unable to attend your booking and it’s more than 14 days in advance, we can offer a full refund or you are of course welcome to transfer to another workshop. If your cancellation is within 14 days of your workshop I’m afraid we are unable to offer a refund, you can however send someone in your place - just advise us of a name change please. If you do wish to rebook you can do so by paying an additional 50% of the workshop value. Please remember that as with many workshops they are full and we often turn people down on this basis - it is not possible therefore to swap dates or cancel with less than 14 days notice unless you or ourselves can fill your space.
If by chance, the workshop 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.
We reserve the right to change a tutor due to any unforeseen circumstances however we will aim to find a replacement tutor where possible.
Can I buy gift vouchers?
Yes, absolutely. They make a wonderful gift. You can purchase your gift vouchers HERE!
