10am – 1pm
The Warehouse, Hampton Wick
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 a pattern template and 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.
