If you want to learn the trade secrets behind making a piped cushion that is finished to a professional level, this three and a half hour workshop is exactly what you are looking for.

This workshop is taught by Anne Sigsworth, owner of Sophies Soft Furnishings, who has over sixteen years experience in making professional soft furnishings. Anne is not only a gifted teacher, she shares her tips and tricks that help sewers achieve the look of a high street store when making the cushion to enable them to recreate this same look at home.

  • We discuss how to pick the best fabric to achieve the result you are looking for.
  • You will learn how to make bias binding in order so that your piping is unique your cushion.
  • We look at ways to embellish your cushions to create a bespoke cushion.
  • At the end of the workshop, you will have completed a fully finished 18 x 18 piped cushion complete with insert, to take home, ready to add to your home decor.

We supply the fabric for the workshop or you can bring along 0.5 meters of your chosen fabric if you like –  we can offer you advice on purchasing fabric if required.
