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.

10 February 2019 • Leggings Workshop ✄✄

Relaxed, friendly atmosphere in which we learnt the basics of sewing with stretch fabrics, including sizing, cutting/pinning, and sewing with appropriate machine settings. Now feeling confident to try again at home! Would recommend.

It was such a lovely way to spend a Friday night... while others wake up with a hangover, you wake up with a new pair of leggings! Such a lovely group of students too.

I really enjoyed the leggings workshop and learnt a lot. Previously I was scared of working with stretch fabrics but the teacher made it seem really easy to understand (even though it's still a bit fiddly!) I was amazed how quickly the leggings came together as well.

This was a great class! I chose a lighter fabric that turned out to be more see-through than anticipated, so the leggings I made will be worn at home only, however they fit great! This was the first clothing item I've ever sewed for myself, and the first time I used an overlocker, and they made it very easy for us to do. It's very rewarding and a lot of fun!
