Our Stitch Club runs on a Thursday after school, 4-6pm for age 7+.
This booking is for the Summer Term, with our first session back after May half term on Thursday 8th June 2023 and includes 15th, 22nd & 29th June & 6th, 13th & 20th July 2023 (7 week term block).
What does the club involve?
The 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 most materials (except on larger projects - see below). 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.
Each term we undertake a new sewing project, this will vary from home interiors to dressmaking projects, some will be short projects and others will take a full term to complete. The children will of course take home everything they make.
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 beforehand.
How does the club work?
We ask for children age 7+ 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.
Our Stitch after school club on a Thursday is fully booked. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you as a space arises. Alternatively, we do have spaces on our Tuesday & Friday sessions if you can make those.
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.
From the New Year our clubs will take place at our new unit; 53 Fore Street, Bovey tracey, TQ139AB.
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.
