Quilting and Sewing Classes

taught by Persephone C. "Percy" Agrafiotis.

Classes will resume October 1st

"We pride ourselves in providing quilting and sewing classes that meet individual needs, whether they are for the new quilter or sewer, or to complete a project that has been on a "to do" list for awhile or to learn a new technique. Some classes are scheduled while others are set up to meet an individual's personal schedule. Most of all I offer small personalized sessions. If the list below does not meet your needs, give me a call and I will work out a session that you need. A reminder, a session means you may be with other students but not more than a few at a time. If you prefer a private session, please indicate this when you call me. "

- Percy

Due to everyone's busy schedule, I find it works out better if you call me about a class so that we may set up the day and time mutually agreeable

General Information

Class Fees
Class Fees are due in full at the time of registration or at the first class. No class fees are refundable but can be applied to other sessions. Payment is to be made by cash or check. No credit cards are accepted. Payment is to be made to Persephone C. Agrafiotis.
Cancelation/Missed Classes
If you need to cancel a class, a twenty four hour lead time before a class starts is needed, as special arragements are made with individual students. Rescheduling times will be made within a reasonable period of time mutually agreed upon. If unusual circumstances occur and a twenty four hour time period can not be made, a reasonable time period is needed as classes are arranged individually with the student. Missed classes without reasonable notification or "no call no show" the fee will be forfeited and no credit will be given. Unfortunately no refunds will be made. Frequent missed classes or cancellation may jeopardize continuation with classes.
Supply List
Supplies are not included in the Class Fees. Once a class is discussed, a supply list will be provided either in writing or verbally. Many supplies are available for purchase at Levesque's at a discouneted cost. Supplies should be purchased before the class begins so that there will not be a delay in getting started unless otherwise indicated.
Sewing Machine
If the class requires the use of a sewing machine, it is the student's responsibility to bring their own sewing machine with them to class. We do sell new and used Sewing Machines if needed. See us for details.

Please arrive 10 minutes before the class begins so that you can set up your equipment.

Please do not bring children to class.

Caring Covers of New Hampshire - Blankets for Children and Adults
I provide new handmade blankets for children and adults throughout the State. They are given to Hospitals, Clinics, Oncology Units, Police Departments, Schools, and other organizations that distribute them to those in need. They provide support, hugs, and warmth as needed. They are new handmade - knitted, quilted, crocheted, sewn, etc. The blankets are made by volunteers.
