Sewing projects delivered weekly to your door.
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.

WHAT YOU'll NEED
Your first box will come with a starter pack of thread and embroidery needles you can use for the Sewscription season, but you will need some basic supplies to get started, many of which you may already have at home.
The supplies you will need at home to complete your Sewscription projects are:
All Sewscription projects require a sewing machine. We use this machine in our studios. Any basic home machine will do.
You'll need a pair of scissors for cutting fabric. We recommend these scissors for younger children and these for adults.
Pins & Chalk
Quilting pins are best for Sewscription projects. Use chalk, chalk pencils or a regular pencil to mark fabric.
Nobody's perfect! Seam rippers are used to undo mistakes in your stitching and always come in handy!
Some of our projects require stuffing. You can either take apart old pillows, use scraps of fabric or clothes to fill your project, or purchase some Poly-Fil Stuffing.

I just wanted to say how thankful we are that you're doing these Sewscription boxes. Not only do they give [my daughters] the opportunity to connect and create together, they also give us the chance to support a beloved local business during this crisis.
