Party time at School of Sew


Dear Parents/Carers…

It’s time to get creative! You’ve done all the parties, run out of new ideas and looking for something a bit different to celebrate your little one’s birthday?!

School of Sew will organise it all for you, great fun for children age 8-16

Dear Kids…

Bring your friends, be creative, learn new skills, have loads of fun, plus everyone takes home a gorgeous handmade gift! We have lots of imaginative ideas for you to choose from.

The Boring but Important Stuff…

SOS Party Ages

We tailor the parties for children age 8+ due to the use of equipment and machinery, however we will consider parties for slightly younger children after discussion with parent/carer.

SOS Party Numbers

Minimum 6 children, maximum 12 children.

SOS Party Prices

Parties range from £12 to £20 per head subject to sewing project, age of children and party duration.

We request 50% deposit upon booking, with the remainder being paid 14 days prior to the party date.

Party pack includes invitations and goody bags.

SOS Party Particulars

Hand sewing party lasts 2 hours, aimed at younger age group (8-10). The children will have a go on a sewing machine to try it out and do a little bit of machine sewing, but will primarily be hand sewing.

Parties involving using a sewing machine last 2 ½ hours, aimed at the older age range (10+)

Feel free to bring your own birthday cake, which we are happy to serve and sing Happy Birthday!

We are happy to discuss catering options.

School of Sew Accreditations

We hold full DBS certificates and Paediatric First Aid Training certificates.

Terms and conditions will be provided along with the booking form.

We take every care to ensure the safety and well being of all the children attending our studio, explaining the dangers of using machinery and equipment. However parents and carers leave children at their own risk. We therefore request that at least one parent/carer remains on the premises for the duration of the party.
