PARTIES > ABOUT OUR SEWING PARTIES
what's involved in a sewing party?
You’ll often find us sporting our festival hairbands at a party - well who wouldn’t?!
At a Magpie Makes party we encourage the party guests to have lots of fun with their activity. The lovely part about a making party is that you have something special (and made by you) to take home at the end.
All our children's parties are run by two of the Magpie team. This will depend on activity chosen and the specialism of the team leader. We will bring everything we need and make sure that we tidy up behind ourselves afterwards.
If an activity is messy we provide aprons, but please do encourage guests not to wear their best party outfits!
where will the party be?
We are very happy to come to your home, or for a totally hassle free solution to hosting a children’s party, why not come to our studio? We can accommodate 10 kids, run a creative party activity and you don’t have any of the clearing up.
If you are inviting a large number of children we are happy to work in a village hall or venue of your choice.
how much does it cost?
The cost varies by activity and also number of children so we prefer to quote on an individual party basis rather than listing our prices on our website. As a guideline our prices range between £18-£25 per head and we offer discounts for large bookings.
Each party booking includes complimentary postcard-style invitations and a badge for the birthday girl or boy.
how do I book?
Due to calendar complexities we are not currently able to take online party reservations.
Please email us or call the studio on 020 8398 9267 and we will be happy to discuss your requirements and find an available date. When we have agreed a date and activity you can secure your booking by paying £100 deposit.
party bags – a little extra...
Packed in a pretty paper bag we offer a choice of either hearts or stars as simple sewing kits. They are a perfect little take home gift at the end of a Magpie party.
Each kit contains everything you need and clear instructions to sew a decorative hanging decoration. Recommended for ages 6+.
"Thank you both SO much for making Mia's birthday party so special. It was honestly one of the best parties we've ever had. The t-shirts were absolutely gorgeous (we especially loved the glitter!) and the activity was pitched perfectly for the age group/ability level. Mia was quite nervous beforehand but you made her feel really special. I love how you've made her feel confident about being creative. Thank you again. Magpie Makes is amazing!"
