How to book a lesson:
FIRST PAY: Choose the number of students from the drop-down menu, adjust the quantity for the number of hours you would like for your lesson, and purchase the lesson.
THEN RESERVE A TIME: After check out, please use Rae's Calendly page to select the date/time(s) for your lesson(s). Please makes sure your session is purchased at least 48 hours before your reserved slot to allow Rae to communicate with you about your lesson and to avoid cancellation. Thank you!
We recommend 2-3 hours if you need a beginner lesson or want to work on a project, but for building techniques, fittings, or serger setup, 1 hour is enough.
