Q: My child wants to learn to sew. What kind of machine should I get?
A: We get this question a lot and the best answer is buy a machine that you can grow into. It doesn't need to be the top of the line or cost a small fortune. John Lewis has a very good line of basic sewing machines in the £100 range that can do some fancy stitches and button holes. What we would recommend avoiding however, is anything at the £50 mark that is more of a toy than a machine.
Q: I want to book a sewing party in London. How does it work?
We need a minimum of 5 to run a party, with a maximum of 15. We always take a deposit of £35 to confirm the booking and we also have some lovely party bags available too!
On the day, one of our sewing tutors will arrive at your house or venue with plenty of time to set-up and will bring along all necessary materials, tools and supplies needed for the party. Then the fun begins! All parties are 2 hours unless a longer party has been requested, in order to make a bigger project.
Final payment is due on the day of the party either in the form of a cheque or cash.
Q: Do you offer sewing parties for boys too?
Q: Which areas of London do you cover?
Q: How much does a Sewcial Circle party cost?
A: While we are based in South London (Crystal Palace), we are happy to travel anywhere within Zones 1-4. Depending on tools and supplies required, we might even show up by bike!
A: Sewcial Circle parties start at £12 per person for a 2 hour party. We typically are sewing/creating for 1.5 hours so there's enough time for tea and cake too. We require a minimum of 5 to run the party and can accommodate groups up to 15. Price includes a tutor to run the sewing workshop part of the party as well as all materials and equipment for the workshop. Please get in touch for more details and prices for bespoke projects or longer parties!
