Cancellation Policy

Any class will be cancelled if there is not the minimum number of students five days before the class is scheduled to begin. Refunds will be given to all students at that time. No refunds can be given thereafter.

Project Yardage

Yardage for specific classes may be given to students if the class has previously been taught at Yankee Pride. Yardage for new classes will not be available until the first class meeting. Students who purchase their fabric and class supplies before the first class do so at their own risk. Yankee Pride cannot be responsible if the class is cancelled due to low enrollment.

Note: Unless otherwise specified, all classes include all directions needed to complete the projects.

Class Registration

We require a minimum of six students for each class. We must receive payment for the class upon registration.

Winter Weather Advisory!!!

During the winter months, please call before coming if the weather is bad – we may decide to close the shop early, or open late.

Also, classes may have to be postponed sometimes due to the weather situation. If you have any questions about a class you have signed up for, please feel free to call us. We will try to reach students when a class needs to be postponed, but it is much easier if you call us.

Ongoing Classes

Fall 2013 Mystery Quilt Reunion

Takes place on Saturday, February 1 at 9:30 a.m. Bring your projects to show – we’ll be taking pictures for our web gallery!

Saturday Mystery Quilt Spring 2014[intermediate]

with Yankee Pride Staff
In keeping with our tradition, the Spring Mystery will fill your dark, dreary days with sewing – a lot of sewing. “A Starry Night” is Judy’s latest creation. Beginners should stick with the wall-sized quilt, as this project is very involved, and the bigger you go, the more cutting, piecing, and trimming you have to do. One thing you know – it will be gorgeous! Sign-up deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Cost: $15
Times: 9:15 or 10 a.m.
Dates: Feb. 8, 22; Mar. 8, 22; Apr. 12; May 3
