Shipping amounts are based on the Continental States. Any overages over $1 will be refunded to your account. 

As an authorized SAORI Studio, I am only permitted to sell within the United States. If you are outside of the country, please go to the SAORI Global website to locate a Studio near you.

Items must be returned in original packing material and in perfect condition.

Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.

Special orders require a 50% deposit, and cannot be returned or exchanged.

Drop shipped items are non-returnable.

There are no refunds on original handwoven garments.

Cost of Materials

Calculated on the weight of the finished project / $4 per oz.

Students must use materials provided by the Studio.

Returned Checks

A $25 fee will be charged for returned checks.


One day notice before class: 100% refund, or you may reschedule the class within one month.

Less than one day notice before class: no refund.

Cancelled Class

If Serendipity SAORI Studio cancels a class, you will be notified as soon as possible and rescheduled at a mutually convenient time.

In case of inclement weather, the Studio may close without notice.

Holding Policy

The Studio has a limited number of SAORI “inside sets.” Therefore, students with work on an inside set are expected to attend weekly in order to complete their project.

If a student has not been to the Studio in two weeks, the work on the inside set will be cut off and set aside (unless prior arrangements have been made).

Any unfinished work left more than 30 days will become the property of Serendipity SAORI Studio.
