Sewing Machine* *

Please indicate if you will be bringing your own sewing machine or if you will need to hire one from The Stitchery. Hire fee’s will be payable directly to The Stitchery (we will pass on your email to them to make arrangements). When possible, we always recommend using your own machine during class as it’s easier to learn new sewing skills when you’re already familiar with your machine.

Dietary Requirements* *

So that we can cater the tea, coffee and biscuit refreshments to you, please tell us if you have any dietary requirements.

Pronouns* *

Vanyanís classes are a safe learning environment where we celebrate diversity and welcome you to be your authentic self while you learn new skills. Your pronouns will be included on your class nametag.
