Piped scatter cushions - learn to sew like a pro!
If you've ever admired a sofa piled gloriously high with an improbable number of scatter cushions, this is the workshop for you. This industrious one-day workshop will teach you how to make a piped scatter cushion, complete with a zip, to a professional standard.
You will learn how to accurately measure and cut out your fabric, make your own piping using a bias-cut strip of fabric; careful and accurate pinning and sewing, including mastering tricky joins and corners on the sewing machine. The day will be busy and creative… and we promise bags of patience and smiles to see you through the tricky bits. Your expert tutor is upholsterer, sew-er and maker Eloise Scotland.
Who's it for? Some experience of sewing and using a sewing machine will be helpful, but support will be given.
What to bring? You will be provided with a 20in square feather cushion pad, but you should bring your own top fabric (half a metre, plus more for piping), sewing machine and basic sewing kit. Zips will be available in black, white and beige (which covers most options) but students who wish to use a different colour should bring a 16in zip of their chosen shade.
IMPORTANT: Your sewing machine must be in good working order and you should bring a piping foot and zipper foot, as well as a standard foot (but we always have some spares just in case). If you need to borrow a sewing machine, please let us know when you book. Thank you.
