Upholstery Courses

Upholstery courses

Last summer I decided to make new gazebo covers and a new set of cushion covers for the outdoor furniture. I have since been asked if I would consider doing upholstery courses. So I have decided to do some upholstery courses soon so keep and eye out as I will be releasing dates soon.

Mo's conservatory suite cushion covers

Mo is one of my regular sewing students who comes to my sew and chat groups on Monday, she didn't want to make clothes because she said she has got all the clothes she needs. So I suggested making something for her home. She said she would like some new cushion covers for her conservatory suite but thought she wouldn't be able to make them. I said of course you can we will work together. These pictures prove she is more than capable of making wonderful covers for her furniture. She has now made five of the eight covers only three to go.
