Our sewing parties provide wonderful memories for years to come!
Sew Retro host's fun creative sewing hen party workshops tailored to hen parties to ensure you all have a brilliant time and leave with a special memento of your day.
Brighton has long been the perfect hen party destination.
Our hen parties are held in a beautiful Edwardian House in Hove, with lots of space. You have full use of the ground floor including the garden, with plenty of photo opportunities.
Choose from making knickers, bunting, fascinators or bespoke items – no prior sewing experience is necessary for any of these activities as your experienced tutor Sarah will guide you through it all!
Prices start at £29 per person to include an activity and a cream tea. There is lots of easy parking and good links with public transport.
Let's make knickers...
Make your own unique pair of knickers at our most popular Hen Party, with lots of laughter and cheeky fun along the way!
Sew Retro supplies all the materials, equipment and tuition, with a choice of 100% silk fabric in great plain colours or 100% cotton fabric, with some wonderful vintage prints to choose from.
Each hen will leave with a unique pair of customised vintage style knickers, and the skills to make many more. No two pairs ever look the same, let your imagination run wild!
No sewing experience is necessary, your tutor will be on hand throughout to guide you through or help provide inspiration.
Let's make bunting...
Bunting makes any event a celebration! Work together and create your very own bespoke bunting at your Hen Party to decorate the wedding venue.
We will work with you before the session to help select stunning fabrics, trims, and delightful haberdashery, all tailored to co-ordinate with the wedding theme and colour scheme.
On the day all the hens will be shown how to sew and make the bunting, leaving with the skills
to make more for their own future parties and celebrations to come! This is a fun Hen Party option that gets everyone together for a creative and memorable day.
Let's make fascinators...
Make your own stunning fascinators using feathers, fabrics, bases, ribbons, vintage buttons and much more. Wear them for a fabulous night out, or even at the wedding!
You and your hens will be shown how to make your own professionally finished fascinators, using a variety of constructing and assembling techniques.
Sew Retro provides all the materials and equipment you need in a wide range of colours, with examples to inspire you.
If you or anyone in the group has particular colours in mind let us know beforehand and we can bring along coordinating bits and pieces.
