Appropriate for

✄ Budding Sewing Enthusiasts: You've been dipping your toes into the seductive world of sewing by making accessories and homewares from stable woven fabrics. Threading your sewing machine is getting familiar (maybe you are still double checking a couple of things in the manual). Sewing at seam allowance isn't a foreign concept. You have followed basic patterns and instructions. Terms like grainline and selvedge are not unfamiliar to you. Beginners should choose soft stable woven fabrics that are not silky or stretchy. If you want to take this course at an ADVANCED level ✄✄✄; select satin/silk blends or slippery/sheer/stretchy fabrics.

Suggested Fabrics

Soft stable wovens like brushed cotton, flannelette or linen. Not suitable for knits. Advanced students only: satin/silk & sheer/stretch.

Loved all the aspects of sewing in this course: hemming, attaching a waistband, pockets,... It ticked off so many of my 'want to try' boxes!

I really enjoyed this course! The teachers are all extremely knowledgeable, nice and helpful, and it was great to learn how a piece of clothing is made from just a large piece of fabric and a pattern all the way to the finished project. This was the 2nd class I've taken at Thread Den and I'd recommend a class there to anyone.

Terms & Conditions

Taking part in a workshop at Thread Den is fun and we love teaching people our craft, but here we have to get serious for a moment:

It is your responsibility to clear your diary for the booking you've made - especially if there are multiple sessions in your course. If you want to finish your project(s), you need to attend all workshops. You'll also need to arrive on time. We can't start again because it just isn't fair to your fellow participants. 

Allow us this indulgence for a second, our workshops and courses - are usually sold out weeks in advance. It isn't a quick switch to pop you into another workshop. If we have an appropriate session where you can attend to keep going, we will try to offer you a discounted space. If that isn't possible, you will need to book a private lesson to stay on track (the minimum cost is NM -$144 or M -$119.52). 

We also won't follow you up to check that you are coming along to class and/or that you have the right supplies for your class. Almost every workshop will require you to bring along your supplies, for some workshops we sell a supplies kit at an additional cost - but not for all. If you are unsure about what you need, just shoot us an email - .  We also want you to learn and love what you make as much as possible, please carefully consider the fabrics we recommend that you use. If you choose a fabric that is suited to a more advanced level you aren't going to enjoy your experience.

We've tried to answer any questions you could have in the workshop description, but again, don't hesitate to email us for any further details or with any queries. We loooove to see that fabric you are thinking of using and sending you off to some of our favourite fabric and habby suppliers. 

Thanks for sticking with us and reading through those annoying details. 

The details of our refund policy appear during the booking process.
