Machine sewn cushion with bird fabric

About

In this three hour workshop 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 and use of sewing machines are included, though we do recommend that you bring your own machine if you have one, to help you to familiarise yourself with it better.

We also provide lots of tea, coffee and home made cake.

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 (currently owning 7!).
