FALL 2019

Afterschool & Weekend Sewing Classes

Get ready to stitch! Butcher's Sew Shop Junior's afterschool and weekend program, voted Best of Philly® by Philadelphia Magazine in 2019, encourages creative risk-tasking in a welcoming environment. Each session explores the art of sewing in innovative ways, but beyond that, your child will make new friends, learn practical skills and discover the magic that comes from creating something with their own two hands.

Butcher's Sew Shop has two studio locations; one in Bella Vista at 800 S 8th St, with afterschool pick-up from Nebinger, Jackson, Meredith and McCall on specific days, and the other located in Graduate Hospital at 1912 South St, with pick-up from Independence Charter (ICS), Greenfield Chester Arthur, and The Philadelphia School (TPS) on certain days. Students from other schools may be dropped off at the start of class.

Our classes for younger children explore the wonders of needle and thread with projects that combine hand sewing and machine sewing. Young sewists learn how to embroider, sew buttons, applique and create items like bags, stuffed animals and pillows. All students are taught how to thread a sewing machine on their own.

All spring classes run 3:30-5:30pm for 11 weeks from September through December. Afterschool pickup is available at select neighborhood schools. We follow the schedule set by the School District of Philadelphia for holidays, closures and early dismissals. Please check each listing for more details about pick-up schools and skipped days.
