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.

I actually learnt how to put rollers in my hair....the particular makeup techniques for the era were very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Miss Lee was incredible. She was patient, warm, encouraging and attentive. I had a wonderful afternoon with my daughter in law and look forward to partaking in the other classes offered. Love your work Miss Lee. Thank you.

My friend and I did the 1920s flapper-style hair and make up class with Miss Lee. We had such a fun time getting to meet the other two ladies in the class. The small class size was amazing, as we really got to know each other and we laughed and chatted the entire time. Miss Lee made sure we all understood the theory behind how we were setting the hair with the curlers so that it would hang properly for the hairstyle we were trying to achieve. She walked us through step-by-step and was able to come and lend a hand whenever we needed it.
