Kids Party

I hosted my first Kids Sewing Party for one of my lovely girls from the Tuesday After School Club.

Non of the invited girls had been on a Sewing Machine before, they all used bondaweb and applique to create decoration for their own bags. By the end of the party they had all used a sewing machine and some had also hand sewn on buttons and bows.

If you would like to book a Kids Sewing Party or an Adult Sewing Party/ Hen Party please dont hesitate to get in touch .

This lady only started sewing in September last year and has made huge progress both in the her sewing skills and her confidence.
