Get a group of friends, family or colleagues together and everyone will design and stitch their very own custom sewing project.

Don't worry, there is absolutely no sewing experience required! You choose the fabric for the project and if there is time you can add decorations and notions to customize it even more.

You do the leg work, our staff will do the finishing touches to make sure your project is sturdy and professional looking when you take it home after this two-hour private party.

Perfect for birthday parties, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, client entertainment, sorority or alumni functions, or just a good excuse for Girls Night Out.
