Parties are offered year round based on space availability (i.e. we're not hosting a class).  Typically this is during the evening or on weekends but we're open to other timing based on your wishes!

Parties are booked for 3 hours and include an activity plus some time for food.  

You are welcome to bring your own food and use our kitchen facilities. Alternatively we can provide food for an additional cost. 

Our parties work best for ages 6+, including adults!  

We've provided some sample party ideas below to help get your ideas rolling.  Once we learn more about your event we can suggest some specific project ideas.

For further details or to book a party, please fill out our online form here.


Prices start at $30+HST per attendee with a minimum of 6 attendees and a maximum of 12.

Food can be added for as little as $5+HST per attendee depending on the menu.

Kids parties with something new!  We'd love to host your little one's (age 6+) birthday party and teach them some sewing skills too!

We'll learn more about your child and tailor (no pun intended) the activity to them.

Examples: fortune cookie, unicorn or minecraft pillow; book bag; hand sewn merit badges

Who needs a special event to have a party?  Sometimes getting out of the house is all the excuse you need.
