The class I want to take is full! Do you have a waitlist?

Absolutely, give us a call at 403-263-8088 or fill out this form and we'll set you up with a waitlist spot! 

Do you offer any kids classes?

Unfortunately at this time we do not offer classes for kids. There are different insurance requirements when teaching kids that we are not able to fulfill at this time. All students must be 16 or older.

If you're not sure, each class has the prerequisites listed in the description. If you need additional help, don't hesitate to reach out to our team. 

Do you offer private, one-on-one classes?

It truly depends on instructor availability. Our calendar at RICK RACK is very full with existing classes and many instructors also have other life commitments which can be challenging for scheduling purposes. If you are unable to attend an existing class you are welcome to reach out to us at 403-263-8088 to discuss options with a manager at RICK RACK. 

Do you offer private, group bookings?

Are you wanting to take an existing stash class with a group of like-minded and like-skilled friends? Then please call us at 403-263-8088 and we can talk about different options with you. 

Why do I have to buy my own supplies for some of your classes?

We want you to be able to choose the style, price point, colour, and amount of fabric (for the size you want) for your garment! 

Why is it important to pre-wash and press my fabric before the class?

Simply put, if you don't pre-wash and press your fabric, your finished garment won't be the same after you wash and wear it. It's less important for things like bags, or decorative items that don't get washed, but it's essential for garments.
