We (two of us!) had a private lesson with Lorena on knitting machine maintenance, as we had both purchased secondhand knitting machines (a singer with ribber and an Empisal) It was so fab! Everything is looking shiny and (vintage) new but I also learnt so much about the operation of my machine. We loved it so much we have booked two more private lessons to learn swatches and a jumper. So excited to know that I’ll be already making my own knitwear by this winter. Lorena is very knowledgeable and passionate about her craft - I’m very grateful for everything I’ve learnt so far!

Loretta’s one on one machine knitting lesson was informative and a lot of fun! We covered so much in two hours. I left super excited and ready to purchase my own machine to start practising!!! Great location in Fitzroy; you can make a day out of it with shopping and eating yummy food! Highly recommended.

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 - they 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 these annoying details. Here's the stuff that is often hidden behind an *asterisk* or in teeeeenie little print:

Refund Policy

  • All refunds are subject to a 25% administration fee.
  • Refunds will only be processed back to the original method of payment.
  • Refunds are processed as soon as practicable. While Thread Den’s part of the process should be undertaken within three days of notice, the combination of the bookings platform and your banking institution’s processes will also influence the exact amount of time taken for you to receive the refund.

Transferring Your Booking

  • If you wish to transfer your booking to another workshop we require at least four days notice prior to the start date of your original workshop/course booking.
  • Bookings without date changes can be transferred to another person without incurring any penalties.
  • Changes to your workshop or the commencement date (within all other terms listed here) will incur a $10 administration fee.
  • Changes to your booking date will not reset the four day notice period.

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.
