Birthday Parties and Private Events


We are happy to host your child’s birthday party at The Makery! Parties are for children turning 8 and up and up to 7 friends.

Typical parties run for 90 minutes and are on Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Parties can run for more time for an additional fee. The guests will learn basic safety and operation of the sewing machines, do some practice sewing, and then sew their first project! Two instructors will be assisting all of the kids through the project. The last 15-20 minutes is available for you to sing and serve cake. You provide all paper goods, food and drinks but we will do the clean up.

The birthday child can schedule a time to visit The Makery to choose a project and a fabric. Popular projects include scrunchies, throw pillow covers (with insert), simple tote bags, and emoji pillows. We will prep all the projects out of the one chosen fabric ahead of time so they guests are ready to put things together with the sewing machines. We are happy to work with you on creating a party to fit your theme/needs. Guests will all be leaving the party with their own handmade creation, so you can confidently skip the goodie bags!

Birthday parties are $250 for up to 6 kids. Additional guests are $25 per child. We recommend a maximum of 8 guests. Please note, we have 6 sewing machines at the studio, so guests will be sharing machines if there are more than 6 participants. We will need your final headcount by the Tuesday before the party and you will be responsible for paying for this number of guests. Contact to schedule your party!


We are happy to schedule a private event for your Ladies Night, Moms group, Baby Sprinkle, Girl Scouts and more. We can work with your interests, budget and needs to create this fun event just for your group. Learn to Sew or make a particular project you are interested in. Private events start at $15 per person depending on time and projects. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and beverages for your event. Adult events can be scheduled 7-9:30pm to allow time for socializing and learning. Contact to design your group event!
