Children's Parties

If you're looking for something a bit different for your child's birthday why not try a 'Sew in the City' craft party?

From making animal shaped cushions to stitching felt bag charms, we have a range of ideas to suit crafty kids of all ages. We'll supply you with the invitations, provide the catering, decorate our sewing room and guide the kids through their chosen project. Kids get to rummage through the class materials and haberdashery in our cutting room and you can either join in or relax with a drink in our comfortable lounge. The party goers get to take home their creation along with a starter sewing kit in their party bag. Speak to us to help you choose a suitable project and then all you have to do is bring a birthday cake!

Available for up to twelve children.
Parties start at £15 a head for first eight children and £10 a head thereafter.
