Description

How to organise a lesson - send us an email telling us:

  • what you want to learn, your type of overlocker and for longer sessions, the details of the project you are working on 
  • what days and times you have availability (note - weekends are very busy and have longer wait times)
  • email = info @ ThreadDen . com

Overlockers are quite varied from machine to machine, so we offer 1 and 3 hour private lessons.  

  1. In one hour we can teach you to thread your machine, how to adjust settings, identify thread tension issues and cover basic overlocking techniques (1hr must be scheduled before a workshop).
  2. In three hours you can work on making an item while teaching you to use your overlocker. Or we can show you how to set up your overlocker for other techniques like roll-hemming (dependent on your machine's settings and options).

I had a very informative session learning about my recently purchased Janome overlocker. I feel so more confident using it. Would recommend this lesson to everyone.

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 - info@threadden.com .  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.


Medical Events

  • If you are required to isolate, with the supply of a medical certificate or COVID-19 testing referral covering the date of your workshop, you will be able to transfer your booking without incurring any penalties.
  • Your safety is our priority, we reserve the right to make decisions if necessary to preserve the safety of all. 
  • In the event of a medical emergency, we may have to seek ambulance services on your behalf and at your expense.

Course Cancellations 

  • Classes are subject to sufficient enrolment numbers (usually this is 3 participants).
  • We reserve the right to cancel any scheduled course.
