Welcome to the EGV Class Schedule

The EGV recent Summer School registrations processed through Member Jungle/EGV website has been an outstanding success!! (100 applications processed in the first week of enrolment).

We acknowledge the process for some of our members may have been a little out of their comfort zone – but well done for your persistence.

Going forward our normal classes will now be processed in a similar way through the EGV website.

No one will be left behind - We are here to assist – please contact us if you should encounter any problems – education@embroiderersguildvic.org

This is the way YOU can help YOUR Guild operate in a COVID safe environment.

We ask that you please read through all the information on this page so you know what to expect and when.

All Classes will be administered using the EGV website (on Member Jungle)

You can register yourself online at the EGV website and finalise your payment, you will be confirmed immediately in your choice of Class. This is the most efficient and secure method for both EGV members and the Guild.

If you choose to make payment via an alternative method outside of the EGV Website/Member Jungle then you are still able to submit your registration request on the EGV Website. Your registration will be completed for you when your payment has been received, with Bank Transfer being the preferred method. Please note that cheques and cash cannot be accepted.

For those that are unable to use the EGV Website/Member Jungle, complete a Class Application Form and send it via mail for processing by the Class Administrator.

All Classes have a limited number of places and when no places remain you will be unable to register online, there is no possibility of an overbooked class.

Should you find the Class you wish to attend is full then please complete the * Wait List Request and your name will be placed in order of receipt onto the Wait List for that Class. You will receive an email to confirm this has happened.

 

There are two ways that you are able to register and make payment for your Class selection.

Option One

Complete your Class Registration using the 'Purchase Ticket' button at the top of the Class description. 

Each screen in Member Jungle then steps you through your Class enrolment, your Class Kit purchase (optional) and you can add Notes if need be. By agreeing to use the third party payment gateway (the gold standard for internet payments) we can confirm your registration in the Class immediately.

You are encouraged to use this simple and efficient option as a first preference.

Option Two 

Submit your Class Registration request using the 'Alternate Payment Method' link at the bottom of the Class description.

Select from:

  • Direct bank credit to the EGV via internet banking

    Bank account details are:
    Account Name: The Embroiderers Guild, Victoria
    BSB: 013350
    Account Number: 009782635
    Bank: ANZ

    Please ensure that you record the Class Code as a reference

 

  • Direct bank credit to the EGV via a personal visit to a Bank branch.

    Please ensure that you record the Class Code on your deposit.

 

  • A reminder, cheques and cash cannot be accepted.

 

Please direct all enquires to education@embroiderersguildvic.org. Embroidery House is currently closed and the Office unattended, your enrolment cannot be processed if we do not receive it.

 

Requirements Lists are available on the Class Description page for downloading.

For mailed Class Applications, Requirements Lists will be sent by email or mail.

It is the preference of the Guild that Kit purchases are made at the time of registration. Cash handling in Class is at the discretion of the Tutor.

In the event that you Register for your class and have forgotten to order your Kit do not despair. Simply order your kit using the Alternate Payment Form method, and arrange a bank transfer as describe in Payment Methods. On your form add a comment so the Education Committee know that you are just purchasing the Kit.

 

Should 2021 classes not be able to proceed we will be looking to re-schedule Classes in the first instance.

If it becomes apparent we will not be able to run a Class then it will be cancelled with a full refund. Where this occurs the EGV will seek banking details from you in order to transfer refunds electronically.

A Covid-Safe Plan will be in place for Embroidery House.

Why does it say there is no 'Refund Policy' in Member Jungle?

You may notice that Member Jungle advises that there are no refunds for Classes. While it is true that we are unable to process refunds through Member Jungle the ‘Class Refund Policy’ is that all are registrations are able to apply for a refund. It is up to the discretion of the Education Committee to determine an outcome for your application and some detail about your circumstances is required ie illness, family emergency. Please email education@embroiderersguildvic.org or complete the online Class Refund Application

A ‘change of mind’ is not generally an adequate reason for a refund however where a ‘Wait List’ exists for a Class, a refund will be considered so it is worth applying as early as possible.

Please note that an application for refund may incur a small administrative fee to cover the EGV expenses.

When a refund is approved the EGV will seek banking details from you in order to transfer refunds electronically.

 

I have a New Member's Voucher that is still current. Can I use it?

If you are a New Member with a valid Class Discount Voucher and have registered for a Class please email education@embroiderersguildvic.org  to advise. Please provide your Voucher No. for verification and your banking details for refund of your entitlement.

 

I Registered for my class and I forgot to order my Kit. What do I do now?

In the event that you Register for your class and have forgotten to order your Kit do not despair. Simply order your kit using the Alternate Payment Form method, and arrange a bank transfer as describe in Payment Methods. On your form add a comment so the Education Committee know that you are just purchasing the Kit.
