Class Signup Tips

There is currently a bug that intermittently stops a class from loading on the checkout page.  At this time we suggest going back to the class page (using your browser's back button) and clicking on 'Purchase Class' again. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times before the class will load (it rarely happens more then that). If the problem does persist and you continue to load an empty shopping cart, please give us a call (617. 714. 4880.) or contact us and we'll be happy to get you registered.

With the launch of the new website several things have changed about class sign up and we have come up with the following in order to help you.

  • Create an account. It will speed up checkout in the future.
  • Checkout for each class individually. Do NOT use the shopping cart.
  • Use one of our suggested Browsers. (We really mean it. The calendar will work better.)
    • Safari
    • Firefox

Last Minute Cancellations:

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate any cancellations with less than 72 hours notice. Of course, if you can’t make a class at the last minute you can always send someone in your place.  Just let us know whom to expect!

Class Credits:

Due to the very limited enrollment in our classes and the special nature of our workshops, classes/workshops are non-refundable. If you let us know at least 72 hours in advance, we will transfer you to another class of your choosing or provide you with a gather here class credit.
To use your credit simply select Class Credit as the payment method when you next register for a class. We'll contact you to pay the difference should the new class cost more than your credit and if the new class is less, we'll keep the remainder of your credit on file for a future class.

Minimum Enrollment:

50% enrollment is required for most classes to meet (details are in the class description).
For classes with a maximum of 5 students, 2 are required for the class to run.
If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
Minimum enrollment does not apply to our Kids are Alright series of classes.

Class Materials:

All materials are included in our basic classes.
Intermediate and advanced classes often require that you bring your own materials. If the class you registered for requires materials, please check online (gatherhereonline.com) for a complete materials list.

Class Discounts:

We offer 15% off all materials purchased for a class so feel free to come in anytime prior to class to shop and receive some guidance should you need it.

Class Cancelations due to Weather:

We rarely close due to the weather but if the MBTA shuts down we will, too. On the rare occasion that this happens we will post revised shop hours on our homepage, the class calendarFacebook, and Twitter. If this closing effects a class we will email and/or call each person to let him/her know as soon as we determine the class has been cancelled.
