I have completed two courses so far and one freestyle class and am about to embark on my third course . I have learnt so much already and look forward to learning so much more. in the future.

I took 2 projects with me to get some help. One was a dress for my niece, her measurements was a confusing mix of sizes 4 (waist), 7 (chest) and 10 (height). Amy helped me to select a size and gave me ideas to manage the height. I’m confident to start it now. The other was making a dress for myself and Amy gave me tips on how to do certain steps. Amy is a great teacher, she gives us handy tips to achieve the best results. It was a fun class on a Friday night. These FreeStyle sewing sessions are so great to have a teacher around to help out on our own projects. I highly recommend it. And you can get dinner at the many restaurants nearby after class. Make it a night out with your sewing buddies.

It was a made up class for the Nova Coat. A few of us had troubles determining the size to cut and we were behind in our class. Danielle and Jenni kindly offered us this class to catch up. With Jenni helping us in class, we were able to cut the fabric pieces out. And I wanted to shorten both the coat and sleeves length because I’m short. Jenni taught me how to do that. We are looked after at Thread Den :-), the teachers do go the extra miles to make sure we can follow the class okay.

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.
