Pattern Design: In this class students will make a pair of elastic waist pyjama pants. The pants are a simple design with a drawstring waist and slightly wide legs. The PJ pants are unisex. School Holiday classes are designed for nine years and up. There is a maximum of eight children in classes. Children wearing PJ pants that they have made themselves are known to go to bed on time without argument.*

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: This pattern is not suitable for knit fabrics. For directional prints or large prints you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

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.

*Obviously there is no proof of this claim.  Your child will most likely require a glass of water, a cuddle, tucking in, a trip to the bathroom and more before they will go to bed on your third or fourth request.

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 thoroughly enjoyed this workshop, it was fun and the difficulty level was just right. My PJ's are great and I have been wearing them a lot. I have been doing workshops here for a few years now and will definitely come back for more. Nellie, 12
