Refunds

  • We understand that plans do sometimes need to change but please keep in mind that class fees are NOT REFUNDABLE unless a class is cancelled by us. However, class places may be transferred to a friend.

  • Transferring a Class Place
If your plans change and you know you will be unable to attend a class that you have paid for, we do allow you to transfer that place to a friend. In this case you will need to arrange your own reimbursement, if necessary, from that friend.
Please advise Quarter Inch right away of any transfers so that all class requirements and information can be passed on to the replacement attendee.


Class Waiting Lists

Always approach Quarter Inch if you cannot attend with as much notice as you can! Occasionally there is a waiting list and someone might be keen to step in for you as a transfer.
Remember that even though we may fill your place in class with a wait listed attendee, we do not provide refunds for class fees. We would instead issue you with a credit note to the value of your class fees.
