In the Cushion Workshop, you will make a cover to fit a 45cm/18" square cushion insert over 3 hours. 

This is perfect for beginners, as you can select stable woven fabrics to work with, or perhaps you have been sewing for years, but haven't ever inserted an invisible zip? The cushion has straight sides and you will learn how to insert an invisible zip into the centre back seam. You will also learn you how to finish your fabric edges on the overlockers.

If you are confident and want a challenge bring along the optional trim and learn how to insert it into the seams of your cushion.

Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop just like the previous workshops I've attended from them. The lovely and passionate teacher, Jen was well organised and presented the steps in a very relaxed manner. Learning to use the overlocker and attaching the invisible zip were my highlights of this workshop as it was my first time of doing those techniques and tools. I really enjoyed this class and would highly recommend Thread Den to anyone. Now, I am doing another workshop with them again and it's the next level skill... I am enjoying it!!!

Laura is a fabulous teacher. Always patient and full of interesting information. I love that I left the session with a cushion I'm happy to display at home. But more than that, I'm left with the skills, knowlegde and confidence to make more at home.
