Class Schedule for Spring 2020

 Greetings, fellow beaders,      

Spring is just around the corner, so it's the perfect time to learn new skills or brush up on techniques. Treat yourself to a fun, relaxed evening of creativity!

Here are all the important details:

  • You're welcome to sign up for any of the classes mentioned in this newsletter by either visiting us in person here at the store, or paying over the phone with a credit card.
  • There's a minimum class size of two students and a maximum class size of eight, so sign up early to secure your space. Lost Cities reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any classes that do not meet the minimum of two students.
  • Payment for classes will be refundable up to 48 hours before the class, so please let us know as soon as possible if you're not able to make it.
  • Tools are provided but not the items on the class supply list, which you will receive upon registration. You are more than welcome to bring your own beads from home. If you need to purchase beads for the class, it's a good idea to come at least 30 minutes before the class starts to select your beads (and you'll enjoy a 10 percent discount).
  • We ask that students be at least 15 years old. We also ask that minors be accompanied by a paying adult.
  • Please, no non-paying guests while classes are in session. We want your class to be about YOU.
  • Lastly, please keep in mind that in order to devote our full attention to our students, Lost Cities will not be open to the public during class hours.​ No exceptions, please.

       I hope we've been answered all of your questions, but do let us know if you have more questions. Robin and I look forward to seeing you soon!
