Behind the Scenes with Local Designers at the Thread Den
If you looking for a place filled with local Melbourne designs, vintage treasures and a sewing lounge Thread Den in North Melbourne is the place. Here you will also find the sewing lounge that holds numerous classes from beginner to advanced, run by local designers, and is open for hourly drop in hire with free assistance.
Rather than curling up at home infront of the heater why not go behind the scenes to meet the designers, watch them work on their spring/summer ranges and discover what it takes to become part of the Melbourne fashion scene.
While you are there you I recommend checking out the two week long exhibition that displays refashioned vintage garments by Australian musicians. This show showcases garments, accessories and textiles by up and coming designer labels including Leonard St, Mintslice Afternoons, Fine Cloth, Oh Bluebird and Ishee. You also have the opportunity to choose your favorite piece and vote in the people's choice awards for your own chance to win a Janome Sewing Machine donated by Janome and Statewide Sewing Centers.
