Pompom parties with It Started With a Stitch are the perfect way to party with a difference for both grown-ups and kids!
Pompom parties were originally set up to teach grown-ups the new way of making pompoms – no more will we be using cardboard circles from the side of the Cornflakes box! It seems to be something that Grandmas taught us as children and they are stupidly simple to make.
What isn’t as easy is learning how to wrap them to make patterns, having the time to trim them to perfection so you can create something that you’d happily display in tour own home.
During an adult Pompom workshop, we’ll look at different modern pompom makers and you’ll be shown how to confidently make your own. Over the session, or sessions you’ll build up your pompom stash an then you’ll have a chance to create a finished product – usually a wreath or some garlands.
The kids’ workshops and parties tend to be based around creating a pompom headband and pompom pencils – a couple of hours crafting for youngsters is just enough to keep their attention and they get to leave wearing their creations!
