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.

Fantastic class, I learnt so many new skills which have given me the confidence to try out a few simple dress patterns at home.

Really enjoyed the class as I learned quite a few pro tips from Jen, the teacher. Also used an overlocker for the first time! It was a lot of fun and highly recommended. Jen was great and happy to share all her knowledge.

A good grounding in how to make a pair of pants that fit. A fun course with loads of scope for personalising the pants with choice of buttons. I changed the opening from right side to left and added cuffs at the hem for a retro look.
