The Thread Room


Studio 9, Ground Floor


Welcome to The Thread Room! We are Millie and Rosemary. Here at the Thread Room we offer Sewing classes for children and adults from beginners to experienced. Between us both we have a lot of experience. Millie has done the Bachelor of Fashion and started Certificate in teaching and Rosemary has done Certificate in  Pattern Drafting and Apprenticeship in Sewing. We both used to run the classes at Bernina but thought it was time to make something of our own and use our skills that we worked for, so that’s why we started the The Thread Room. We will be offering fabric and Haberdashery in the near future. If your interested in our classes please email us at or check our Facebook & Instagram under @Thethreadroom.

Matthew Steedman is a visual artist and primarily a painter. He is currently working on a series of pixel paintings. “We live in an age of visual saturation.

Watch something closely and you will see it’s connectedness to other things has a depth and a delicacy so natural and precious that it is at once both profound and simple. My children taught me to look again, and now I am caught in the wonder of the natural life.  I paint with oil on linen or wood board.  I am self taught.
