A colourful range of children's art, craft, sewing and cooking projects

what's involved in a sewing party?


A sewing party is a chance to sit round our table with your friends as you learn to sew a small creation. It does require some focus and dexterity but there's always time for giggles and chats alongside! The lovely part about a sewing 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.




where will the party be?


For a totally hassle free solution to hosting a children’s party, why not come to one of our two light and bright studios? We can accommodate 15 kids in the large studio and 8 in the smaller one, run a creative party activity and you don’t have any of the clearing up. We are also very happy to come to your home if that suits you better.




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. Please get in touch for this information, 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.

"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!"
