We supply great quality sewing kits to Secondary Schools, packed with essential tools and materials for the student sewer. These can be bought separately or together with one of our Sewing Project Kits.
Our standard sewing kit contains: plastic head pins, sewing needles, a seam ripper, a measuring tape, a plastic bobbin, sew all thread and an embroidery shank. Alternatively, we can custom make a kit to your own requirements. Just let us know what you want and we can put them together for your students.
All kits come in a zipped/ziplock wallet and a sewing guide.
Sewing kits and project kits can be combined.
Project kits include all the materials necessary to make the chosen project including a set of instructions and/or patterns, and some projects have video tutorials too.
Reduce your stress:
- Everything the student needs is included in one pack
- All the cutting and organising is handled by us – teachers just pass out the individual packs
- While there is a choice of colour every student gets the same project contents and starts on an equal footing
- Every project is individually packed in a ziplock wallet with a sewing guide and place for the student to write in their name
- Every student gets an instruction sheet so they can work more independently with less intervention from the teacher
- Less hassle for students and parents trying to find fabrics and materials
- Less hassle for the teacher putting together shopping lists and reminding students to bring in items
Our secondary school sewing project kits range in complexity so whether you have a novice first year or a very creative 3rd year, we have something to suit everyone.
Every pack is inserted into a sturdy zip-lock wallet. A good quality polycotton is predominately used in the projects with a mix of 100% cotton on some projects, though you can swap fabrics if needed. A selection of colours are available, which can be chosen when ordering.
We are also happy to adapt any kit or create a new project based on a schools needs or budget. Sewing kits and project kits can be combined into one pack that contains all the tools and materials needed for the project.
This year we have introduced the facility for students/ their parents to buy the kit through our website. Once you decide on the project/ kit we create a bespoke web-page for your school where it can be purchased. We deliver all the bought packs to school by the agreed date.
Here are some photos of our projects:

Transition Year Projects
We have a range of projects for your TY Students to learn new skills and crafts and have a lot of fun! Sewing, painting, gluing and even melting! If you are looking for more creative or crafty projects to deliver during a single or double class, our short projects might be suitable. Or if you are looking for a group project for a whole class to complete over a number of weeks, our long-form projects might be suitable.

What Teacher’s Are Saying:
“We have had a great experience with our orders from craft cabin. Taragh is always so helpful and orders are processed very promptly. We just let her know exactly what we plan to make, what we require, our price range, and she comes back with a kit to exactly suit our needs. The whole process is so easy and quick. The craft cabin online payments system also cuts out the process of having to collect money as students can pay craft cabin directly.”Martina
