Classes are filling up fast for the January through June, 2012 schedule. Looks like everything will fill quickly so get your deposits in to get the classes you want. In order to be fully registered for a class, students need to pay a 50% deposit. You can pay through the website using PayPal (www.apparel-arts.com) or bring a payment to your next class. Just putting your name on the class list is not enough. Whomever gets their deposit in gets the spot.
We will be taking over our new space across the hall on December 15 and hope to have it ready by January 1. That space is 825 square feet and will be used for lecture classes and will house the office as well.
