MATERIAL FEES

All material fees are included in the class price unless noted otherwise. Please read the class description carefully. Material fees cover a wide variety of yarns and a limited choice of warp yarns. Select warp yarns can be purchased by the yard as well as select weft yarns, which are sold in skeins or balls. See price list at Weaving Hand's studio. Patrons participating in a class must use Weaving Hand's yarns due to the material’s fee inclusion in the class price. Exceptions are only made for patrons who are Open Studio attendants.

The weaver will be notified through email or a phone call to pick up the project. Any unfinished projects held at Weaving Hand for more than seven days after being cut off the loom will become property of Weaving Hand unless prior arrangements have been made and an addition fee of $1 a day is paid for storage. Material Fee will still be charged.
