Children’s Parties at Emporia


Exciting news for little crafters – not only are we looking to have more kids’ craft workshops and classes, but Emporia Fabric & Craft is now available for kids’ parties! Great for those that love sewing or who want to get into it, Sally from The Sewing Machine is going back to school with her party sessions, teaching children from six to 14 to make their own crafty creations.

Groups of eight to ten children are invited to have their birthday party or celebration in the craft workshop at Emporia, where they will get to make cuddly owls or funky monsters, learn to sew a pencil case or a tote bag, applique patterns on a t shirt, or create some felt hanging hearts. All  materials are provided for the kids to get started on their project, which they can personalise as they please. Sally will oversee all the sewing and sharp objects, but most of the time the children will be in charge of designing and creating their own work.


Prices start from £85.00 for six children, for one and a half hours, with extra children £12.00 per head after that. We’ll give you some special Emporia craft party invites, so you and your little ones can send them out to their chosen friends. Drinks are provided, and of course you are welcome to bring along the birthday cake for singing and slicing at the end of the party. We can even give you party bags for everyone to take home for an extra £5.00.

Parties are available to book from 4pm – 6pm Monday to Thursday, and from 10.30am – 6pm Saturday and Sunday. Once you have chosen your craft and party date, you just need to pay a non-refundable deposit of £50.00 to secure the booking, and then pay the remainder a week before the party date.
