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.

Please arrive on time. Thank you for your consideration.
“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, tweezers, 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. Don’t forget your glasses.
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 cancellation is made one week in advance. If possible, kits will be prepared for cancellations 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.

September/October Paper Crafting Groups:
Share your interest in paper crafting with others. Belonging to a group gives you access to lots of ideas and suggestions. Learn tips and techniques and make new friends. These informal groups begin with show-and-tell, followed by a new assignment for the next month. A make-and-take ends the session. Choose the day and time below that best fits your schedule. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced stampers are all welcome. Please bring workbox. There is a $2.00 fee.
