STITCH CLUB is our after school sewing club for children age 9-17 held every Monday after school term time only.
This option is for a term block from the New Year every Monday 4-6pm.
Dates included are as follows: Monday 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st January, 7th & 14th February. (6 week block).
The session takes a maximum capacity of 4 children at anyone time for one to one personal tuition. From the New Year we will have 1 space available for our Monday after school club. If you would like to join the sewing club please contact us prior before booking.
What does the sewing club involve?
The sewing club teaches children how to sew using a sewing machine. We may do hand sewing from time to time but the majority of the sessions will involve using a machine. Sewing machines are provided, as is all equipment and materials. If your child has a sewing machine, we do suggest them bringing it with them if possible so they can learn on their own machine.
Every week we undertake a new sewing project, this will vary from home interiors to dressmaking projects. The children will of course take home what they make.
From time to time we may do bigger projects that require more than one session to complete the project, but if so we will of course let you know beforehand so you can book for the adequate number of sessions. For larger projects we may ask you to source the fabric (so that is is suitable for your child), if this is the case we will let you know within plenty of time and advise you of what you will need.
How does the sewing club work?
We ask for children age 10-17 to attend, as they can come without the need for a parent/guardian to supervise. A parent/guardian is welcome to stay for the session/s if they feel necessary but they are not expected to. Our craft tutor is fully insured, first aid qualified and DBS checked and can provide copies of the same should you require them.
Where possible please arrive five minutes before the club starts to drop your child/children off and then please arrive prompt at pick-up. Please wait outside the venue door and I will pop down and open the door up.
Our craft clubs take place at our studio premises in Bovey Tracey; Studio 2, 83 Fore Street, TQ13 9AB. We are in the old King of Prussia / new Bovey Paradiso building.
Should you need to contact us for any reason please call us on 07864009316.
Please ensure your child brings a drinks bottle with them and a snack if you wish.
It goes without saying if your child tests positive for Covid-19 or has been with someone that has tested positive, please don't attend the session. Please contact us to arrange a suitable alternative.
I never imagined my 7 year old would enjoy this class as much as he has. We signed him up because he likes making things and being creative, but wasn't sure if he'd really like it. He comes home every week delighted with his creation, I'm so impressed with his improving skills, and so pleased he has such a love time learning such a lovely skill. Thank you Emma 💓
My 7 year old has come back totally buzzing from this club. She’s so excited to have made her own cushion cover and cannot wait to make an apron next time. Highly recommend.
Jess is absolutely loving the after school club & learning how to sew. She is delighted & so proud of her cushion cover & is really looking forward to the next project next week. Keep up the fab work!
