Sewing Programs For Scouts

Scout leaders….are you looking for something different to do with your girls? How about a sewing activity? Sewing is a life skill, but it can be so much more to your girls. At Sewing 4 Fun, we combine the fun with the learning and tailor the lessons in a way that we guarantee success even if this is your first time sewing!

As a preferred partner with the Girl Scouts of Northern IL, I am able to offer events for full troops, or individual scouts through the council. Look for my programs offered in the “Big Book” or contact me directly by filling out the form below. Private events are usually held at my studio located in Elgin.

I offer:

  • Private events for individual scout troops
  • Workshops (booked through the council)
  • Quick lessons for girls and moms on how to sew on badges
  • Hand sewing workshops for younger girls
Sewing 4 Fun Inc.

Pricing will vary depending on number of girls, projects chosen and length of the program (Typical event is 2 hrs). You can download our Girl Scout Packages here. These packages are a good starting point. However if you have specific needs beyond what’s on our flyer, please be sure to let us know. We will do our best to accommodate you. Call us at 847-345-0979 .

Workshops & Sewing Socials

Sewing Socials

Join us for one of our FREE "sewing socials" which meets on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 4:30 - 7:30

Bring your machine, (or reserve one of ours), your project, supplies and tools. Get comfortable, and sew the night away!

We welcome all levels, new and experienced...

R.S.V.P. is preferred (especially if you need a machine) and so we know how many tables to set up.

For more information and to reserve your spot, click this meetup link. 


Workshops are a great way to up your sewing game! We offer things for beginners and beyond. Some are just a few hours, while others may be multiple days. Find more details on our booking page. Click on the tabs for "muliple day workshops" and "1-Day workshops" to see what's coming up this month!
