My friend gave me the gift of a Cushion Cover Sewing class with the Thread Den. My friend and I did the course on Sunday, 5th July 2020. Jen took the class and she is terrific. Some of us were very rusty but Jen let us try first and then helped when she could see we needed it. She explained things very well and in plain terms not jargon. We came away knowing how to insert a invisible zipper and make a cushion. We were given the pattern and came away with a completed cushion and a sense of achievement.. I would certainly recommend the Thread Den to anyone who wants to sew with some guidance.
