Note: Due to the pandemic, Beth Ann is not scheduling any in-person classes or events at this time. But the fun isn’t stopping! Interactive online Zoom classes will be offered through Lakeshore Sewing. You do not need to be a local to join the fun. 🙂

How Zoom classes from Lakeshore Sewing will work:

● You do not need to have a Zoom account to participate in a Zoom class.
● You can register and pay for Zoom classes through the Lakeshore Sewing stores (by phone or in person), just like an in-person class.
● Supply lists will be available in-store and online at www.lakeshoresewing.com.
● You must supply a current email address when you sign up so that instructors will be able to send out invitations to join the class, as well as any class handouts.
● Teachers will email the invitation links to join the class at least 24 hours in advance. There will be no class refunds with less than 48 hours notice.
● If you are new to Zoom, please check into the class 10-15 minutes ahead of time and follow the prompts to set up your audio and video.

Zoom classes seem to work best when used with Google Chrome; if you currently use a different browser, you find it helpful to download the (free) Google Chrome browser for use with Zoom.
