We re-opened in July and we're sew happy to be offering classes again! We're pleased with the positive feedback we've received with the steps we're taking to keep folks as safe as possible during these times AND still bring much needed creativity , socialization and learning into people's lives. Please read the below steps we are taking and ask you to follow to ensure we can continue to keep folks safe and provide creativity to our community.
What We Ask Of You:
~ Well fitting masks are required to be worn covering your mouth & nose while in in the studio. We reserve the right to deny entry or ask you to leave for ill fitting or improperly worn masks. If you do not have a mask, we are selling them individually for $12 or 3 for $30 in the front entry of our studio. We also have three packs for Men, Women and Children online here: https://www.thecreativesewingstudio.com/collections/shop
~ All students will be expected to wash their hands or use sanitizer upon entry to the studio.
~ If you have flown anywhere or traveled outside the country it is required that you wait 14 days before coming into the studio for classes/workshops.
~ If you have had direct contact with a person(s) with whom has or is suspected of having COVID it is required that you wait 14 days before attending a class/workshop.
~ If you are not feeling well and/or have a fever do not attend classes/workshops at the studio.
What We're Doing:
~ Historically, we have always cleaned thoroughly but in lieu of the current climate we will be increasing this. Frequently touched surfaces will be sanitized on a more frequent basis and between each class shift.
~ We have decreased our class/workshop size to ensure folk's workspace are six feet from each other.
~ Fans placed in all the windows exhaust and intake fresh air.
~ An air purifier is run during all classes/workshops.
~ We'll have slightly staggered arrival and departure times to ensure six feet between folks.
~ There will be a sign in sheet for all adult students that is filled out before the start of their course.
~ Our instructors wear properly fitted facemasks and when applicable additionally wear clear face shields.
~ When applicable, for higher level classes we ask that students bring their own machine and general sewing tools if they have them. If they don't they can borrow from the studio and all these items will be left out for sanitation purposes.
We want to keep our instructors safe as well. By following our procedures and remembering not to stand closer than necessary to our instructors we are confident we can continue in a safe manor and enjoy the process of learning and creativity together.
~ Please note that as of 6/1 our standard Policies went back into effect. They can be viewed HERE.
