2020 Workshops

Booking Workshops

 Oast Quilters is pleased to be able to organise a variety of tutored workshops throughout the year. Hopefully there is something to please all tastes on the programme, but if your area of interest is not covered then please contact the programme secretary (currently Mary Cunningsworth), who will endeavour to find a suitable speaker/tutor for the future.

The tutors for ‘External’ workshops are usually nationally, if not internationally, known in textile/quilting circles and we are privileged to be able to learn from their expertise at a rate which is much less than usual charges. ‘In-house’ workshops are tutored by our own talented members. External workshops cost £25 for the day and in-house ones cost £20 for the day.

Requirements for each workshop are given below, and attendees should check them in advance so that they can have the full benefit of the day.

We strongly recommend that all electrical equipment brought to workshops (sewing machines, irons, extension cables, etc) should be PAT tested annually.

Tea and coffee is available throughout the day of a workshop, but members should bring their own mug and a packed lunch.

All workshops run from 10am to 4pm.

Booking a Workshop 

• You can obtain a workshop booking form from the Members’ table at each Oast Quilters meeting or by downloading the booking form, under the Workshop Menu tab, ‘2020 Workshop Booking Form’.

• A paper copy of the form must be completed and submitted with full payment for the workshop(s) booked. No deposits are required/accepted.

• Verbal booking is not accepted. The only way to book a workshop is by submitting a booking form.

• Members may book individual workshops throughout the year or book all that they wish to attend in a single submission.

• Although immediately bankable payment (cash, or a cheque made payable to ‘Oast Quilters’) is much preferred administratively, post-dated cheques will be accepted. Any such post-dated cheques must be dated a month before the pertinent workshop. Please note on your booking form if your cheque is post-dated. 

 • Place the completed form with the payment into an envelope and put it into the black box on the Members’ table, or post it to the address on the form.

• If you require the workshop details and requirements to be sent to you by post, please include a stamped addressed envelope in the booking envelope.

• If you would like to know whether a particular workshop still has spaces, please email the workshop organiser oastworkshops@gmail.com  or check on the Oast Facebook page.

• Non-members may attend workshops provided that the workshop is not over-subscribed. Please email the workshop organiser oastworkshops@gmail.com for more information.

Confirmation of a Place on a Workshop

• Confirmation will be sent by email, unless an SAE is provided.

• Members should contact the workshop organiser oastworkshops@gmail.com if they have not received a confirmation within two weeks of submitting their booking.

• Members should assume they have a place on the workshop(s), unless they hear to the contrary.

• The list of confirmed attendees and people on the waiting list will be available at the Members’ table at Oast Meetings.

• Confirmed attendees will also receive an email reminder shortly before the workshop.

If a Workshop is Over-subscribed

• In the event that a workshop is over-subscribed, Oast will endeavour to arrange additional dates that members may be offered.

• If that is not possible, then places will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

• If a member is informed that they do not have a place, their name will be retained on the waiting list (in order of booking) in case there are any cancellations.

• If a member is not successful in securing a place then the fee will be refunded in full.

Cancelling a Place on a Workshop

• If you have to cancel your place on a workshop, Oast will endeavour to ‘sell’ the place on your behalf. If there is a waiting list for the workshop, the place will be ‘sold’ to the next name on the list and your fee will be refunded.

• If there is no one on the waiting list and you have a friend who would like to take the place, please let the Workshop Organiser know. It is vital that the change of name is notified to the Workshop Organiser.

• If Oast is unable to sell the place, you will not have your workshop fee refunded.

• However, if there are exceptional reasons for your cancellation, please contact the Workshop Organiser who will liaise with the Committee regarding a refund of the fee.
