The fine print:
Full Classes: Students are accepted on a first come, first served basis determined by receipt of payment. If your registration arrives after the class has filled, you will be notified and put on a waiting list. You will receive a full refund if a spot does not open up for you.
Cancellation Policy: SEFAA reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment. You will receive a full refund if your class is canceled.
Withdrawal Policy: Your registration is a very important source of income for SEFAA, one that helps our nonprofit keep the lights on, pay instructors, and purchase supplies. So, while our cancellation policy recognizes that plans change, it also ensures that those changes don’t result in an unprofitable event. Here are the details:
- Please email email@example.com if you will not be able to attend the event you have registered for.
- You will receive a 100% refund if you find someone to take your place.
- Otherwise, your refund is conditional on the number of enrollees on the first day of the event:
- If your withdrawal does not drop the total number of enrollees below minimum enrollment, we will refund your full registration minus a 15% processing fee. You will receive a check within 10 business days after the event ends.
- If your withdrawal does drop the total number of enrollees below minimum enrollment, we will not issue you a refund.
Lodging for Out-of-Town Students: We recommend the TownePlace Suites Atlanta Norcross/Peachtree Corners. Please email for a booking code.
Workshop Hosts: Hosting an instructor is a great way to spend quality time with a renowned expert! You provide breakfast and dinner, accommodations, travel to/from the airport and to/from the event location, and assist the instructor during the event . In return, we pay you $50/hosted day.
Scholarships: The mission of the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance is to celebrate, support, and perpetuate the fiber arts. One way we do so is to offer full-tuition scholarships to individuals who wouldn’t otherwise be financially able to attend selected SEFAA workshops. (The availability of Scholarships is noted in the workshop description.)
In exchange for a scholarship, recipients commit to volunteering for SEFAA for 3 hours for each day of the workshop they are attending. Volunteer work can be in person or online/remotely and can include hosting a Lunchtime Fiber session, performing clerical work, volunteering at an event, or something else that is mutually agreeable. Recipients further commit to logging their volunteer hours with SEFAA and to completing their volunteer commitment by the one-year anniversary of their workshop end date.
Scholarship recipients are also responsible for prepayment of any workshop supply fees, procurement of all required student-provided workshop supplies, and any transportation and lodging costs associated with taking the workshop. Additionally, scholarship recipients must sign and promptly return a Workshop Scholarship Contract acknowledging their commitments to SEFAA.
Scholarship applications must be received a minimum of two weeks in advance of the workshop date. Students will be notified whether or not they have received a scholarship a minimum of one week before the workshop.
