Envelope Cushion

About

In this three hour workshop with Cornelia Costeanu you'll be given a step-by-step introduction to machine sewing, whilst creating your own beautiful and unique cushion cover.

Starting with an introduction to the sewing machine – how to wind a bobbin, thread the machine and sew in straight lines, you'll then move on to cutting out your fabric and learn how to sew it together to make a simple envelope cushion.

As well as learning how to sew seams, you'll find out about simple seam finishes and how to give your cushion a professional look.

All materials are included, together with lots of tea, coffee and home made cake.

We can also provide a sewing machine for you to work on (for a small fee of £10), though we do recommend that you bring your own machine if you have one, to help you to familiarise yourself with it better.

After a fun morning, you'll leave with your finished cushion cover (together with all the know-how to make more at home).

If you need a particular size of cover, just let us know in advance and we can accommodate that easily. Feel free to bring along your own fabric too.

Cornelia Costeanu is a very experienced and well-known instructor, having been teaching sewing to both adults and children for over 10 years. With a degree in interior design, she is passionate about recycling, vintage fashion and is rather addicted to her sewing machines.
