Thread Den: Locally Sewn Fashion
Sew-it-yourself vintage inspired clothing takes root in Melbourne.
Evolving from its original concept as a community lounge for sewing and socializing, Thread Den has become a destination for supporters of Australian-made clothing and vintage fashion.
Playfully blending a 1950s housewife vibe with modern DIY craft culture, the street-level retail front features a curated selection of over 50 local independent designers and vintage clothes while the upstairs studio is reserved for crafting classes and sewing machine hire.
Classes are a mix of basic skills, project classes and master classes with well-known vintage-inspired and bespoke designers. Thread Den also hosts a bimonthly apparel and accessories market where students and emerging labels can showcase their wares.
