Sounds like our Sew with a Pro Clinics are the way to go?

If you've thought about private tutition but the cost is a little out of your reach, this is a cost effective way to work at your own pace.  With a maximum of four people in the clinic, your teacher will be able to create a plan of attack just for you and teach you specific skills and techniques. 

Grab the project you've been planning to create and make it happen with the added guidance you need from a Thread Den Sewing Pro. You can book in for just one session or come to multiple sessions to complete your project in your time, at your pace. Thread Den provides the studio space, use of our machines and equipment and a skilled professional sewer to offer guidance, but please bring ALL the materials you need for your project. Session fee does not include Thread Den materials.

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.

Amazing as always. Now I can set a sleeve with confidence and do a pussy bow

Dear thread den, I thoroughly enjoyed the class and learnt a lot from Laura’s expertise. Laura was insightful, knowledgeable and encouraging. I am excited to have discovered such a great venue where I can be inspired to create. Kind regards Elena


25 February 2018 • Sew with a Pro Clinic

With the assistance of Jen I was able to successfully make a 1 fifth scale peplum that fitted the mannequin. From what I learnt doing this I was then able to draft a full scale peplum that fits me perfectly. I also worked on several other unfinished projects, such as taking in a dress too big in the waist.. Sew With a Pro is a very useful facilitated workshop. Many of my projects might have remained unfinished without the encouragement and help I have received in this class.
