HOT: Thread Den, 422 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Ages ago I enrolled into two beginners sewing classes at Thread Den (you can read about my experiences here and here). With each sewing class comes 2 free hours of machine use in the sewing lounge, but until now I’ve not had a reason to use them. Now that Thread Den have decamped from North […]
