Stitch Clubs are small groups of up to 8 children (from age 8) and young people. A group is usually mixed ability and ages to encourage individual achievement and to support each other to create their own ideas. We meet in our purpose-built Stitch Studio in Pinner, North-West London – a cosy making cave full of inspiration.
Starting with simple hand sewing and basic fabric manipulation and then introducing and developing sewing machine and design techniques, children and young people are soon designing and creating their own items. Individual creativity and flexibility are as important as technique ensuring that confidence and skills develop while making fun and beautiful things.
The emphasis is on encouraging children and young people to have the confidence and skills to make items that they want. Getting an idea from your head to reality requires planning and adaptability: practical and creative skills. Creating in small groups encourages collaboration and support and taps into an important part of being human.
We supply everything – fabrics, haberdashery (ribbons, buttons and other bits and bobs), patterns, skill instructions and tuition. The only time you may need to make an additional purchase is if you require a specific fabric or notion when creating a particular project.
If you are interested in joining one of our clubs or are interested in setting up a day-time session for a home educated group of children (we run 2 a week usually, but have capacity for more) then email Sam — email@example.com.
