Kids' Sewing Birthday Party - 2hrs - Simple Tote Bags, Book Covers, Drawstring Bags, Scrunchies + Headbands

Are you looking for a fun party for your craft-loving child and their friends?  Kids 8 and up are welcome to our Sewing Birthday Parties.  Beginners welcome!

The cost is $360.00 for 8 children or less.

Kids will learn sewing machine basics and then be able to make something from the following projects: a fabric exercise book cover, a handy simple tote bag, a sweet drawstring bag for all your little treasures, or scrunchies and elasticated headbands for some awesome hair accessories.

Guests can choose what they would like to sew, and depending on sewing experience levels, may end up completing more than one project.  The tote bag measures 35x29cm plus over the shoulder handles. The book cover is made to fit over the small exercise books we supply. 

Your party includes:

  • Qualified tutors with a ratio of one teacher to four guests
  • Sewing party invitations
  • Sewing machine hire and tuition
  • Use of sewing accessories including pins, needles, irons, thread and scissors
  • All the supplies needed to complete their projects
  • Use of our North Hobart studio for 2 hours (with optional 15 minute set up time beforehand)
  • Cordial and biscuits

 You are welcome to bring your own food, cake, decorations and lolly bags. 

Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your dream party!  Parties are available on Saturday mornings and afternoons.  

Parties are held on Saturdays 10-12 or 2-4 (15 minutes set up time prior to party and 15 minutes pack up time post party included in the cost). 

 

 

Accessibility: Despite our goal to have an accessible sewing classroom, in our current location the classroom is unfortunately up a flight of stairs. There is a small bathroom downstairs, not wheelchair accessible. If you have any queries about the accessibility of our classroom, please give us a call.

We do have a mobile classroom which we take to different venues that are wheelchair accessible, so please do keep an eye out for those classes if you are unable to visit our North Hobart store.

Our philosophy: 

We love sewing.  We love that it is a mindful and creative activity that is an important life skill.  If you can sew you can mend clothes and household items (instead of throwing them away), make things for others, create a hand made wardrobe, decorate your home and so much more!

We have been teaching children for 7 years and aim to foster a safe and creative environment in our kids' classes where everyone feels welcome, regardless of their skills, abilities and differences.  We will work with you and your child to find the best way to teach them.

We think that kids are pretty amazing!  They don't have the fear that adults sometimes have of making mistakes and trying new things.  This means that their sewing usually exceeds our expectations.  Kids 8 and up can sew beautiful quilts, bags, soft toys and clothes.  Kids 10 and up often sew as well as an adult can when given the chance. 

This means that we work with their strengths and believe in them.  We don't give kids cheap calico and acrylic felt to "practice on".  We start them on good quality cotton and know that the outcome will be good and will last for a long time.  We let them use pins and irons and teach them to be safe and independent.  We listen to their ideas and incorporate them into our lessons if possible (if a toy dog needs a cape or a party hat - let's get some paper and make a design - hey we have even sewn a waistcoat for an octopus!).

We hope that attending our classes will form life-long memories for your children - and we look forward to meeting them.
