Social Sewing Night

Next Available: 20 Oct 6:00PM
3.0 hours


Held on the last Friday of the month from 6pm to 9pm, it's our Social Sewing Night and it's FREE for Thread Den's Member!

Guests pop into finish projects they've started in class, to work on current projects on a sewing machine, trace off patterns on the cutting tables, get some overlocking done...  But, it's not exclusively sewing, members are known to bring in their knitting and crochet projects, hand sewing, embroidery, there's even been hat steaming!  Hell, you can pop in just for a chat!

A night of sewing, craft and skill-sharing for members who like to craft in good company. Thread Den puts on some wine and everyone brings a small plate of food to share.  Why not pop on your pinnie and whip up a plate of your own tasty treats to share? 

It's our Friday Night Stitch n' Bitch and It's a great way to meet new people!

Bookings essential.

Advice given during Social Sewing nights cannot be detailed instruction. Many people attend these evenings and there is usually only one Thread Den teacher running the night. For detailed tuition, look into a Private Lesson scheduled at your convenience.

Thread Den

Vendor sincce 2013

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes? 

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

On occasion, Thread Den is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach people to sew, knit and crochet, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.

Social Sewing is a godsend. I find it is perfect for getting started on, or finishing outstanding projects, Three hours of interruption free sewing in good company is perfect.

I love the social sewing evenings - it's on a Friday night so it feels like a special night out: lovely finger food to try, and red or white wine too.

Laura is a fantastic teacher. She's patient and explains things very clearly. The pattern is versatile and uncomplicated.
