Holiday Craft: Kids Soft Cushion Kitties or Puppies


This workshop is designed to introduce the youngest of our students to crafting and creating with friends.

We'll provide everything needed. We start out with the pre-made soft kitty or puppy cushion face shape, students stuff them with hobby fill and hand sew up a little hole in his seam. Then it becomes all about turning him into a very unique little cushion. Using felt, fabric, trims, buttons, pom-poms and imagination students create a face, eyes mouth, teeth, tongues, capes, skirts, veils, hearts, stars...

Suitable for children aged six and up. Children under six years of age must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to assist them with the workshop. Otherwise, parents are asked to head off for a relaxing coffee or tea while we get creative!

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.

Thread Den

Vendor since 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.
