A great environment to learn new skills in a relaxed atmosphere. Teachers are very approachable and the finished product 👍

ThreadDen was a welcome find when I was dealing with a sewing emergency. It's tucked away upstairs but once you're in there it's a wonderfully welcoming space with great facilities and people; they even took the time to show me how to work an overlocker and that made a huge difference to the job I was doing! It's very inexpensive considering that they offer all the sewing kit you could possibly need and I'll definitely be looking to come back again.
