Cushions Course

Cushions dates

  • Saturday, 9th July

What to expect...

Full day session from 10am to 4pm

Throughout the day on the cushions course you will learn the techniques to make 3 different style cushions... an basic envelope cushion, a buttoned decorative cushion and a zipped cushion with piping.

Each cushion will teach you a new technique which will be demonstrated to you. Then you will complete the techniques yourself and make yourself beautiful cushions for your home.

If you have used a sewing machine before and are confident in using it, know how to use a straight stitch and a zigzag stitch, and you are ready to build on your sewing then the cushions course is ideal. It helps you to use your sewing skills to make something which is both practical and decorative. You will be given handouts which details each technique you learn, explaining them clearly and easily for you. You can then refer back to when you make your first cushion on your own.

All your materials, cushion pad and threads etc will be provided, however, if you have some particular fabric to bring, please let us know so we can arrange for it to be cut before the class.
