Cancellation of classes by Pick up and Knit may occur at any time due to unforeseen circumstances e.g. illness. In the case of classes held within a school this will be communicated to the school at the earliest opportunity. For classes held online, or in person outside a school setting, this will be communicated to all participants, by E-mail and/or telephone (text), at the earliest opportunity. Any sessions missed due to a cancellation by Pick up and Knit will be held at a later date, refunded or a credit will be offered for a future class as appropriate.

Change of date, time and location of classes may be subject to change at any time, but as much notice as possible will be given in all cases.

If a session is missed by a Knitting Club participant, every effort will be made to enable them to attend on another day during that course instead. This will be arranged directly with the participant. If this is not possible they can attend an extra session during a subsequent Knitting Club course, if and only if, they have made a booking for that course.

If a session is missed by an 11-17 participant they may, at the discretion of Pick up and Knit, receive a voucher code for a discount off a subsequent 11-17 course.
