Customers who purchase a machine from Cupcake Quilts are welcome to attend our Free Mastery classes. If you’ve purchased a machine elsewhere, you can attend at a fee of $50.00 an hour. If you have a different serger than those listed in the serger part of the description and would like to have classes, please, email Gypsy Hargrove, the instructor, at gypsy@cupcakequilts.com to find out if you can be in the classes. With two locations to serve you it is possible to complete all your classes within a month!

Classes will be offered every month but we will rotate the days of the week to be able to accommodate everyone's schedule. The serger classes will be offered at one store one month and the other store the next month. 

Be sure to reserve your space for Mastery class by calling the location of your choice. You will be required to bring your own machine to each class. If you have just a few questions about specific functions on your machine, or have an older model, please email Gypsy Hargrove at gypsy@cupcakequilts.com or call to set up a one on one appointment.
