Fiber Arts Seminars

Jump To:

We are pleased to offer the following Fiber Arts Seminars at the 2020 Festival. A downloadable list of classes is available here.

Registration Information

Online Registration
We are again accepting ONLY online registrations and using Eventbrite as the online registration mechanism. You can access our Eventbrite online registration page at https://mswf2020.eventbrite.com. Registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis, until classes are filled. Registration will remain open until the night before a class is scheduled, or the class is filled, whichever comes first. See online registration instructions for helpful hints for using Eventbrite.
Order Limits
In the interest of allowing as many people as possible access to classes, you may purchase only one seat per class.
Materials Fees
Materials fees (if any) will be paid directly to the instructor just prior to the start of class. Note: This is a change from the process used in 2019.
Double Booking
Eventbrite allows you to register for more than one class at a time. It does not, however, prevent you from registering for multiple classes that occur at the same time. Please pay careful attention to the dates and times of the classes you select in order to avoid “double booking” yourself. We will not be held responsible for your selection of classes and any conflicts that occur.
Notifications

Cancellation of Classes
On rare occasion it may be necessary to cancel a class or several classes due to instructor illness or travel delays. Should this occur, the Festival will notify students as soon as possible by the following methods: email, cellular telephone number, or home telephone number, if provided. The student will have the option of participating in another scheduled class, providing there is a place available in that class OR a refund for the class will be given. The Festival WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE for travel or hotel fees incurred by the student or any other fee related to the cancellation. If the student opts for a replacement class, NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN.
Waiting List
Waited too long to register? If you would like to be placed on the waiting list for any of our closed classes, email . Be sure to include the class name and number in your email.
