The West offers a variety of needlework classes. Classes are held in the mornings, afternoons and some evenings. Classes cost $10 per session and advance registration is required. Please stop by The West or call 520-299-1044 to register. If a class is full, you may place your name on a waiting list and you will be added to the class in the event of a cancellation. Occasionally, classes must be cancelled. Please call the day before the class to ensure it is being held and that you are on the class list. This includes those who may be on the waiting list. Don’t forget to bring your scissors and stitching supplies to all classes. Note: supplies needed for any class may be purchased prior to or at the first class session. Private lessons may be arranged upon request at a rate of $20.00 dollars per hour or $50.00 for a three-hour session.
