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.

Cancellation & 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.

  • Cancellations or changes made less than 48 hours prior to class commencement will forfeit the full course fee paid.

Unfortunately, we can't tentatively hold or pencil in places without payment.

This was an excellent workshop. I will certainly be coming back to learn about all the other vintage looks. Miss Lee explained things so clearly and was so hopeful. Everyone in the class was really friendly and this was a great way to spend an afternoon
