Let’s Get Making Cushions – a five week course which focuses on different sewing techniques to build up your confidence for future projects.
Closures – Learn the different styles. We look at the many different ways you can finish of your projects zips, buttons and button holes.
Stitching – Learn more about terms like staystitching, understitching and topstitching techniques; how and where and why!
Bindings, edgings, piping, finishing, overstitching different seams, applique and decorative techniques – for that professional look.
In the first three weeks we build a reference portfolio as an essential reference guide, making samples for you to refer to, we want you to go away with the confidence and knowledge that you can make lots of cushions on your own by the end of the course.
In weeks 4-5 you will use some of these new skills to make two cushions using your own choice of fabric.
Materials for your portfolio are provided but you will need fabric for weeks 4 and 5.
This is a great class if you have just started out sewing and want to get to grips quickly with techniques.
