Do I have to bring my own machine?
No. Thread Den has a Janome My Excel 18W for each student.
How many people will be in my class?
Six. There is a new class maximum of six students per class (we have reduced this from eight due to COVID-19).
What happens if I miss one of the weekly workshops?
If you miss your second you can still attend your third workshop.
Can I reschedule mid course?
No. Our Bookings & Cancellations Policy will apply.
Can I do my first workshop from one set of course dates, then two and/or three from a different course date?
When are the Sewing Basics for Beginners workshops held?
Weekday classes are held from 6pm. Weekend classes start at either 10am or 2pm.
I have some sewing experience, should I do this course?
If you have frustrating and annoying issues (like a bird’s nest of threads happening) you will get a lot from our Sewing Basics for Beginners Course. If there are terms and tasks described in the class description that you don’t understand, that is also a good indication that you will enjoy our Sewing Basics for Beginners Course.
Can I make something else in the course?
No. This is a planned course with specific sessions outcomes.
Do I need fabric or supplies?
Yes. Each class description lists what supplies are necessary for that class. For the Sewing Basics Course these supplies are also available for sale at Thread Den.
Do I bring my own equipment or sewing kit?
No. But many students do bring along their own sewing kit.
Can I buy the same machine that I learnt on at Thread Den?
YES. You have been sewing on a Janome My Excel 18w. Pop along to Statewide Sewing Centres and let them know that you have been learning at Thread Den. They always have the 18w in stock and have a free gift for Thread Den students!
