Children's Sewing Parties

Ideal for children who love

to be creative.

A chance to learn something new with their friends.

Create a unique handmade item to take home.

 

Since we closed our shop doors in December 2018 our children's sewing parties have changed

as we now come to you!

Yes that's right, we bring all our lovely fabrics, haberdashery and sewing machines to a venue of your choice.

 

This can either be your home or a local community hall or church.

Here are a few recommended venues that suit our sewing party activities;

- Bobbins and Bolts - Kings Road

- Pannal Village Hall - Pannal

- St Peter Church - Cambridge Street

- The Green Hut - Harlow Avenue

Before booking a party venue, we recommend you contact us first to check availability.

Our popular sewing parties are great fun for children aged between 6 and 14 years old.

Using a selection of colourful fabrics, felt, buttons and fabric pens each child will learn how to use a sewing machine whilst making their own creation from our unique Needle Point range.​

Our party package includes;

- All materials and equipment

- Supervised craft activity

- Party bags for all children

- Choice of 11 specially designed products to make (1 product per party)

- Drink and snack

- Fun and friendly atmosphere

- Travelling to a venue of your choice

Our parties are 1 hour 30 minutes. We require 30 minutes to set up before the party and 30 minutes to pack away. All setting up times are based on the venue being easily accessable with parking outside.

Costs

The cost of our parties is £140 for up to 8 children with an extra £10 per additional child. The maximum number of children per party is 16.

What you need to do or supply?

As professional children's entertainers we take care of the party entertainment. All we require from you is a party venue with a minimum of two 13 amp plug sockets, tables and chairs and a reasonable amount

of space for the children to sew and be creative.

Please note you will need to supply the following items should you wish to; party food, birthday cake, partyware (plates/cups/napkins/table cloth - unless the venue supplies them) and party decorations. If you are providing party food please eat after the sewing activity and be aware the party will be 2 or more hours to factor into the hire costs and times.

Parties in your home

If you have the space and feel a party in your own home will suit you better. All we require is a

kitchen/dining room table suitable for 4 sewing machines near a 13 amp plug socket and

a table for the children to be creative.

We’re afraid due to the advance preparation that is required, bookings are non-refundable. However if you need to make changes regarding the party activity or number of children attending,

we require a minimum of  24 hours notice or you will be charged.

In the unlikely event that Needle Point has to postpone or cancel a party due to illness,

we will give you as much notice as possible and make every attempt to reschedule the party.

If you can't make the rescheduled date, a full refund would be given.
