Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is your return policy?

A. Unused yarn in its original, “as new” condition may be returned for a full refund within 30 days of purchase. We do not accept returns on needles, notions, publications, patterns, special orders, sale items, clearance items, or items we no longer stock.

If a sweaters quantity of yarn is purchased, returns of unused yarn in its original, “as new” condition may be returned for a full refund within 60 days of purchase.

Q. What is your class cancellation policy?

A. You will receive a full refund if you cancel your class registration up to two weeks before the class start date. If you change or cancel your registration within two weeks of the start date and we are able to fill your spot, you will receive a full refund. If you cancel or change your registration within 48 hours of the class start, we cannot offer a refund or a credit. This ensures that our teachers are fairly compensated for their time and that waitlisted students have the opportunity to register for sold out classes. Once a class starts, we do not offer make up classes for any reason. We reserve the right to cancel a class if enrollment drops below three students. We will hold a waitlist for classes that are full.

Class cancellation due to inclement weather is at the sole discretion of JP Knit & Stitch.  Should a single session class be cancelled due to inclement weather, students will receive a full refund.  Should a session of a multi-session class be cancelled due to inclement weather, a make-up session will be scheduled.

Q: Who can take a class/workshop? Can I sign up my kids?

A. Unless otherwise noted in the class description, our classes are suitable for students 16 years of age and older. For those younger than 16 years of age, we do ask that a parent or guardian attend the workshop as well. Please call the shop at 617-477-3707 with any questions.

Q: Does JP Knit & Stitch offer private workshops/events? 

A: Yes. We would love to host your group, family, or friends for an evening or day of making. We are also able to host your workshop off-site! Please email us with your inquiry.

Q. Will you wind my yarn?

A. We provide a swift and winder as a courtesy to our customers.  We are happy to assist our customers in the set up of the yarn on the winder, however, our staff is not able to wind the yarn. Yarn that was purchased anywhere other than JP Knit & Stitch is subject to a fee of $1.50 per skein.

Q. Can I use the sewing machines in the shop when a class is not in session?

A. We do allow customers to utilize sewing machines in the shop for $10 per hour. Please call us at 617-477-3707 to schedule your sewing studio time in advance and make sure there are no classes going on during the time you would like to sew. As our staff needs to be available to help all clients during your sewing studio session, we ask that you be respectful of their time and if you have a project that will need extra guidance or expertise that you sign up for a class or hourly private lessons. If you have any questions feel free to email us and we would be happy to help you choose the right style of studio time. Please note that our Sewing Crash Course, an individual lesson, or prior machine use is required to book Sewing Studio time.

Q. Do you provide sewing supplies in the sewing studio for use during classes and studio time?

A. No, we do not provide sewing supplies and we ask that you bring (or purchase) your own supplies to use with our machines during your class or studio time. 

Note: Although there was a time when we were able to provide a stocked sewing studio for our customers to use, there has been a rise in theft of said items and we are no longer able to provide these. We are deeply saddened by this but JPKS cannot afford to restock all supplies (scissors, rulers, bobbins, sewing machine tools, bobbins, etc) for six sewing machines on a bi-monthly basis.  We truly appreciate your understanding. 

Q. How do you maintain an environment that is so welcoming to everyone?
