Cancellation & 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.

I had a fantastic time last Saturday afternoon at the 60's vintage hair and make up workshop. Miss Lee made everyone feel welcome and there were lots of laughs. I learnt how to use hot rollers (up until now a bit of a mystery) and even my butter fingers could shape a cool bouffant. Lots of useful tips about equipment and products. Awesome experience, highly recommend.

Miss Lee made my hair look AMAZING, and it's still holding a few days later. I loved the 60s afternoon, it was a great chance to learn new hair and makeup skills and meet others with a love of vintage
