About This Class

Class Schedule

  • Held over two consecutive days, from 10am to 3pm each day.
  • January: 19th & 20th. 23rd & 24th.

What You Will Learn

  • Threading and using a sewing machine, as well as using sewing tools - like scissors
  • Day 1, how sew a zip, fuse interfacing and make a zippered pencil case
  • Day 2, how to trace, cut out patterns and sew a bag with lining

What You Get

  • Our experienced and lovely teachers will take you through everything from the very beginning.
  • You don't need to bring a sewing machine or tools. We have lovely, smooth running Janome machines (supplied and serviced by Statewide Sewing Centres).
  • A handmade zippered pencil case and a handmade tote bag


We spend lots of time teaching them to thread their own machines and start to troubleshoot stitching problems.  Everyone starts out on a template, makes a handy zippered case and then we make a tote bag.

The course is designed for children aged nine years and up. If your child under nine is super keen to be involved, a parent/guardian must accompany and assist them throughout the two days. 

This class is only offered during the School holidays. Our school holiday program is hosted by our super talented, super nice and super fun instructors.

My 9 years old daughter had lots of fun in this class, and she came home with wealth of excitement about doing her own sewing project. Kind teachers, great environment, highly recommended.

What a wonderful class - my 9 year old and her friend really enjoyed this 2 day course - definitely coming back. Every class Thread Den run is always fantastic.

The other girls, Danielle and Amy were so friendly and helpful. I learned to use a sewing machine, sew in zips, put interfacing in. I made a pencil case and bag - all in two days! The Thread Den was a great space to work in. I learned so much - it was great. I can't wait for the next classes in the school holidays. So happy that my Dad found this course for me.
