2021 Registration Information

Online Registration

Registration for our online 2021 Fiber Arts Seminars is now open at To allow enough time for materials kits to arrive prior to the start of class, registration for those classes requiring materials kits will close on April 3. For all other classes, registration will remain open until the class starts or the class is filled, whichever comes first.

Materials Kits
Materials kits are required for some classes. These kits will be purchased directly from the instructor. Ordering instructions will be available in Lessonface once you have enrolled.
Double Booking
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.
