Looking for something fun and crafty for a special birthday celebration? A sewing party with Betty Buttons could be the answer. We want everyone to love sewing as much as we do so the emphasis is on fun and having ago rather than super neat stitches. What could be better than getting together with some best friends, enjoying lots of laughs and spending your time creatively too!
Betty Buttons Parties run themed sewing projects for children for 2 hours. Both Ann-Marie and Stella will be on-site demonstrating sewing skills and offering help to complete the project. In our experience something simple is best to go for as the children will want to stop and chat at a party. Girls especially love sewing on embellishments such as ribbons and sequins, so we bring a selection with us. We have a game that the girls can play when they take a break and supply a prize. Each child leaves with their own wonderful creation wrapped up in a clear cellophane gift bag, so they have a parting gift to take home with them, that takes care of the party bag unless you want to add to it. Have a look at some of our themes here.

If you would like to do a birthday tea, we would suggest serving this after the sewing.
“A huge thank you for inspiring 9 little girls to be creative …its amazing what they achieved with a needle, thread some fun felt & a little guidance!
Darcey just loved her Betty Buttons party & I hope we can make it along to some of your workshops now they know what’s involved…
Thanks too for making hosting a party at home a very relaxed experience.”
“Thank you so much for Eliza’s party this morning. It was probably the smoothest-run party I’ve ever had the pleasure to be involved in (and I’ve been involved in many!) It was so industrious & the girls were totally focused throughout.”
