20 August 2020How to Crochet a Granny Square Online Workshop
The online crochet session worked very well. Amy was a very patient teacher and explained the pattern and stitches very clearly It was easy to see her demonstrations on the video. It was a good experience, doing this on Zoom. Pleasantly surprised that an active craft class could be conducted online. I would be interested to do more crochet tutorials online.
Thread Den 02 September 2020

I was originally very nervous about running online workshops due to lockdown restrictions. It was a long-term plan to have an online offering… but being rushed into it made me very anxious. The Thread Den teachers all contributed to the model developed for our online workshops and their commitment and input into the process was incredible. We wanted to use the opportunities presented by this time to create a supportive and nurturing workshop delivery mode that makes each student feel like the focus of our attention. The wonderful feedback received has uplifted us all so much! Online workshops will continue to be part of Thread Den’s workshop schedule and we are also going to incorporate some of the great teaching tools and methods that we’ve use online when we teach off line. Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback.

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 - .  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:
