If your son or daughter is a keen crafty, why not give them a sewing party this year?


Pins & Needles offers a range of party packages to suit all tastes and sewing skill levels.


We bring all the materials and tools needed. Whether the party is taking place at your home or a different venue, all we need is a large table and enough chairs for the guests.


Choose from 3 tried and tested projects, which suit even absolute beginners. We also offer bespoke packages and projects for your party, so if there's something you'd like to include, just get in touch.


Parties cost £35 per child (or £30 per child for current school club members) with a minimum of 4 children. Guests will be entertained for up to 2 hours - usually around 90 minutes of sewing with a couple of short breaks for snacks and drinks - it's thirsty work, you know!


Register your interest by completing this booking form. We will be in touch to discuss the party and finalise everything before you pay a penny.


See our sewing party FAQs below for more details.

Unicorn plushies

These unicorn plushies have gold lame horns and gold netting for a mane. Fancy!

Suitable for party guests with some sewing experience, but this isn't essential. 

Emoji cushions

Everyone loves an emoji - even absolute beginners can sew one of these. 

Great for a mixed party of boys and girls and each guest gets to choose their emoji face at the party from a selection. OMG! 

Cute doughnuts

These doughnuts are almost good enough to eat, but make sure you save enough room for birthday cake! Yum...  

Guests can choose their icing colour at the party and sew on sprinkles to suit their taste. 

  • Does my child need to have any sewing experience?
    No. We tailor the projects so that, regardless of ability level, every child gets to complete their project. More experienced sewists will be able to be more creative with their project, while beginners will stick closely to the instructions and guidance from the teacher.

  • What is your refund policy?
    For school clubs, we only refund for missed sessions if we or the school cancel the whole session. We do not refund for missed sessions due to school trips or illness. Please see our Fees Policy for school clubs here For workshops, we require 7 days notice to cancel a workshop for a full refund. If it is less than 7 days until your workshop, we would be happy to offer an alternative workshop (subject to availability) at no extra cost or a 50% refund.
