Parties for Kids

Host your child's birthday party in our lovely studio! Kids love our creative parties; they get to try something new and take home their own creation! Our studio is suitable for party sizes of 4 - 20, children age 6+ and a range of craft projects, including sewing, knitting, paper crafts and more.

Read on for more information and when you're ready, please email us at [email protected] with your child's age, preferred dates, number of guests (doesn't have to be exact at this time), any project ideas and special requests. 

What mums say:

'I just wanted to send you a very big THANK YOU for Isabella's great birthday party! She and her friends had an amazing time at The Village Haberdashery and the fellow mums and I have been absolutely surprised at how focused they had all been through the sewing project thanks to your lovely teaching your great project!' - Angelika, mum of Isabella, age 7
 

Projects

We want to help you and your child choose a project they are excited about! We can teach a wide variety of crafts so if your child has project in mind, please let us know! Otherwise we're happy to make recommendations based on the age and size of the group - from a hand-sewn stuffed toy to a stationery-making party. Project ideas on a sewing machine include a tote bag, drawstring bag, envelope cushion and an elastic waist skirt. Want inspiration? Check out our pinterest board for ideas! For most projects we can accomodate groups of up to 20. For projects on a sewing machine we can accomodate groups of up to 8. 

Kid Party Ideas

Ages

We recommend children be at least six years old for hand-sewing and craft projects, seven years old for knitting and 10 years old for sewing machine projects. We understand younger sibblings may want to take part and as long as you can provide an adult to help, this is usually no problem. If you have any questions about what project is suitable for your age group, please get in touch.
