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.

19 December 2017 • Sunday Afternoon Sewing

Where would my sewing be without Sunday afternoon sewing? Never finished, that's where. I managed to cut two Charm pattern Rita blouses, and the bias roueau loops for my boned bodice on Sunday afternoon, so my Christmas break sewing preparations are done. I felt that I achieved more in three hours than I did at the entire week at home. Thank you Thread Den! All the best for Christmas and New Year to the lovely ladies of Thread Den. Looking forward to another wonderful year in 2018.

Three straight hours of uninterrupted sewing enabled me to make enormous inroads on the dress I am making for a friend. After being stalled for months (while I completed another dress) it's back on track and nearly finished. I don't know if anything would get finished without Sunday Afternoon Sewing Sessions. I also met new people and we chatted over our sewing projects. I love to see what others are making.

Great session! I find it is the best uninterrupted session for when I'm starting projects to get rid of any "sewing inertia" I'm having. Or finishing projects that have sat around too long.
