We will only partially delivers orders where we have determined the full requirement can be met within a reasonable time frame.

While we do our best to ensure the pictures used on the site reflect the products we cannot guarantee that your monitor will display the colours accurately. Where colour is critical we recommend you contact us directly and we will work with you to overcome the issue.

Descriptions of products provided on the site are a mixture of supplier provided and our own created descriptions.

Courses and Workshops:

Booking one of courses or workshops on the Patch and Sew websites signifies that you understand and agree to abide by the terms and conditions stated in this section.

Payment is required in advance for all courses and workshops. We do not normally refund the course fee where the student cancels, unless we have a waiting list and are able to offer the course to another student. If the course its self is cancelled and cannot be rearranged at a later date then we will refund the course fees. If the rearranged date is unsuitable for some students then we will also refund the course fees. We reserve the right to make small changes to the content of workshops at our discretion.

It is very unlikely that we would cancel a course/workshop but we require a minimum number of students to allow them to run and so if we do not have the numbers required and we have to cancel we will let you know as soon as we can and will offer a full refund or a transfer to another course or workshop. If we do have to cancel a class/workshop we will not accept liability for any other costs incurred by the student other than the workshop/course fee.

Some workshops will require you to bring your own sewing machine, under these circumstances it is your responsibility to ensure the machine is electrically safe and you operate it in a safe manner. All electrical equipment must be PAT tested before use in the classroom. (this will usually be covered by your annual machine service).

We do take all reasonable precautions to ensure the Health & Safety of our students. It is important that students are aware of others and their own safety. Any Health & Safety advice given by the management or workshop/course tutors must be adhered to.

Patch and sew cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury to you or your personnel processions.
