We're bringing Butcher's right to you! Become a member of our new Sewscription service and access our Best of Philly classes and projects from the comfort of your home. As a Sewscriber, you'll receive 7 weeks of Sewscription box delivery with everything you need to create a new sewing project at home plus access to an online class for that project plus tons of extra tutorials. It's creative get-away time for you or your child when you need it most!
Sewscription boxes are perfect for adults who want to sew with or for children of any age or for children with some sewing experience ages 7 and up (children younger than 7 will just need more adult guidance). You will need access to a sewing machine and some basic supplies like scissors and pins (see our list below for our recommended supplies). Project examples include aprons, stuffies, pillows and more. Some projects may require additional adult guidance based on your child's age and sewing experience.
SIGN UP ANYTIME. Sewscription boxes are available for US shipping only within the 48 contiguous states via USPS. We ship on Fridays for all orders placed before Wednesday (5pm) of the same week. Orders placed after Wednesday are shipped on Friday of the following week.
Add siblings for $99/each
No need to fight over our adorable projects, we have enough for everyone! Add a second or third project to your Sewscription box each week for $99 per sibling for the entire 7 week season.
