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.

Good fun!


29 January 2019 • Vintage Hair and Makeup Workshops

I really enjoyed the Vintage Hair and Makeup workshop. Miss Lee was so friendly and helpful. She gave us lots of tips to make it easier to try at home. A glass of bubbles made it more fun and you get to meet some like minded people. Would definitely recommend. Everyone loved their fab new look.

Are you keeping up with the red lippy? It was a pleasure to have you, we hope you come again to another decade.

I can’t recommend this class highly enough. Miss Lee is so warm and welcoming and makes you feel at ease straight away. The class sizes are small so everyone gets one to one help and Miss Lee gives you tips and styles to suit you. The atmosphere is lovely and it’s nice to chat away to the other people on the course. We had such a lovely time and will definitely be back for more classes.

We can't wait to have you back for another decade. In life you should always wing it - especially your eye liner!
