Thimbles and Threads


Welcome to our class list for 2017.  We hope that you will find something of interest. 

Class samples will be available in store and will be posted on our web page.

To ensure our classes run smoothly and for you to get the most from it, please consider the following:

All classes are limited to a maximum of 6 students. A class will not go ahead unless we have a minimum of 5 students. The final decision will be made 3-4 weeks prior to a class starting and at this time your needs list will be available.  Should we cancel a class you will be offered a full refund or a place in another class of your choice.

Should you want to cancel from a class, you must do this one month before the class starts, we will give you a refund less a $10.00 administration fee.  Once a class is confirmed to proceed there will be no refunds.

All students need to provide their own sewing machine which needs to be in good working order. 

Your place in a class is not confirmed until payment has been received in full.  The first 6 students to pay get priority.   All classes operate on a ‘first in first served’ basis.  

Tea and coffee will be provided at all classes.   Saturday classes have a lunch break, please bring your lunch with you or there are many places nearby.

Please come to your class with your needs assembled, and ready to start the class on time.   Your needs list will be posted to you once we have confirmed the class is going ahead.   We would ask that you be considerate about the use of cell phones during the class.

Parking in Upper Hutt is free. All nearby parking is limited to 60 and 120 minutes.  There is all day parking available in the carpark behind us, the railway station and a few others nearby all within a 5-10 minute walk.   Please ask the staff for further information if required.
