Holiday Sewing: Learn to Sew 2 Day Workshop for Kids

About This Class

Class Schedule

  • Held over two consecutive days, from 10am to 3pm each day.

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

  • A handmade zippered pencil case and a handmade sling bag
  • 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).


This 2 day workshop starts right at the very beginning, with students learning how to use a sewing machine and cut out fabric. 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 sling 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. 

There are no refunds available on children's classes as they are only run during school holidays.

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.

Miss 10 thoroughly enjoyed her first experience at Thread Den. The teachers were patient, fellow participants were supportive, & she came away having made a pencil case, & a bag! We will definitely be back for more workshops next school holidays. Thanks Thread Den 💛

Great experience, Mia really enjoyed the experience and was very excited to tell us everything she had learnt each day. Mia found the teacher very helpful and friendly. We will be going back to do more classes.
