Parking Info
  • We are located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.  It's a red door on the street between an Afghan restaurant and the N2 Gelato Bar.  If you are putting this into your GPS for directions - make sure that the address is NOT coming up as North Fitzroy. That's a couple of kilometres down the road. Totally not where you need to go.
  • Parking near Thread Den: There is very little free parking. Brunswick Street is all ticketed and restricted to as little as 2hours during some hours of the day.  Surrounding streets can also be difficult.  However, you can park for longer in the paid Coles Car Park.  When you look it up online it is listed as Johnston Street, however access is via Argyle Street.  If you park on level 1 or 2 and spend over $30 at Coles, you can get your parking for up to 4 hours reimbursed in Coles.  
  • Catch the tram. Public Transport is the ideal way to get to Thread Den - jump on the number 11 Tram and get off near the Johnston Street intersection.

What to bring
  • Matching sewing machine thread
  • <140cm wide fabric = 2.5m OR >140cm wide fabric = 1.8m light weight, soft draping fabric: cotton voile, crepe de chine, soft cotton lawn, rayon.

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.

26 June 2017 • Kimono Cover Up Workshop ✄

This class was lots of fun. I loved learning how to do pleats and French seams. I found the rolled hems quite hard to do, but once I got into the grove of it, I got it done. I love this jacket design and have already made 2 more.


25 January 2017 • Kimono Cover Up Workshop ✄

I picked up some good tips on pinning techniques, fabric placement (and extending the grainline on the pattern to make it easier) and plenty more. Jen was able to offer something for each of our skill levels in the class. I really enjoyed it!

I learnt French seams, I didn't get a copy of the pattern & felt the general lack of a proper pattern a bit strange. You just get a piece of cardboard to trace around.
