Class and Workbox Info
 
To ensure your place in class, please register and pay in advance as soon as possible. Preparing class kits for those who sign up late is time consuming and inefficient for our instructors. For those who miss a class or cannot attend a class but want a kit, there will be an additional fee added to the class fee.
 
“Workbox” items are available at A Small Cleverness. Remember to bring your workbox to every class. Basic items are scissors, wet adhesive (like Fineline glue applicator), tape runner, and foam tape. Other helpful items are a paper trimmer, a scoring board, bone folder, black marker, glue stick, small water color brush or water brush, ruler, and a craft knife and mat. Please be prepared.
 
Check the supply list in the class descriptions for additional items before coming to class. These items are available at A Small Cleverness also.
 
Please refrain from wearing any kind of scented product in the shop if you are a shopper or you are taking a class. It is very objectionable to those with sensitive noses and/or health conditions. Please turn cell phones off during class. Cell phone conversations are not allowed in class. Please step outside to check messages or to make calls. Please arrive on time. Don’t forget your glasses. Thanks for your consideration.
 
Refunds for class fees can only be made if a class is canceled 48 hours in advance for local instructors. Refunds will be given for out-of-town instructors if cancelation is made one week in advance. If possible, kits will be prepared for cancelations made after these deadlines.
 
Extended Hours:
Do you want to shop after 5:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M.? Just check the schedule on the website or call us. If we are having a class or club, we are open and invite you to come in. Call ahead to ensure that no last-minute class changes have been made. Our regular hours are Monday through Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

Bargello has its roots in embroidery and quilting and is easily adapted to paper.
