Private Class/Party Policies for Young People
Call us and we will send you project options for classes and private gatherings for ages 8 through 15 years. All supplies are included.
Our parties are 2.5 hours, and begin at $135 for up to 5 guests. Each additional guest is $15.00. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to hold your date. The total fee includes one Uptown Craftworks employee for every 5 children to work with the children on their projects, as well as supervisory staff. Maximum number is 12.
Due to our small space, our creativity parties are a DROP OFF party, so parents of guests are encouraged to drop the kids off and let our wonderful staff take care of the rest! A few parents, of course, are welcome as chaperones. If you are having food and cake on our deck at the end of your creativity time, parents may join their child in this area.
Times available for parties are Saturday afternoons from 3-5:30pm, Sunday afternoons from 2-4:30pm, Monday through Friday evenings from 4:30-7pm. Be certain to call the shop prior to planning your date to make sure your desired date is available.
If you are having your food items and/or cake here, we have added in an additional 30 minutes to the 2 hour project class for this purpose. If you are having your cake and food elsewhere, your guests may use the additional time to complete their projects. Weather permitting, we prefer that food and cake are served in our deck area. Party host parents are responsible for cleanup in the deck area afterwards of all birthday foods and decor.
Please feel free to decorate the party area or our deck (if weather permits) if you’d like to. You may also drop off paper supplies and food earlier in the day if you wish. We play instrumental world music at the shop, so please bring an ipod and speakers if you’d rather play your own tunes.
Parties are structured to end ON TIME. Please communicate the importance of prompt pickup to your guests' parents. Our employees must have the shop empty in order to clean up from the party and get ready for the next day. If the party exceeds its allotted time, a fee of $ 15.00 will be assessed for the additional time for every 15 minute increment.
Let us know if you are having food delivered. Many of our parties choose to walk down the street and have pizza after their sewing/creativity party. New York Pizza is located just 2 blocks away at 4418 Magazine St (504) 891- 2376. They have a party room, which can be reserved when you have a larger group.
Parties held at Uptown Needle & CraftWorks are for children age 8 yrs old & up, and choice of activities are geared toward age groups of pre-teens, tweens or teens. You may pick up a copy of activity/project choices in our shop or we will be happy to email the .pdf file to you.
We also have options for private parties/workshops for adults - same fees apply and we can be more flexible on days and times.
If you have any questions, please call our shop at 504-302-9434 and we will be happy to work with you on options.
