Since moving to England I've become a bit cushion obsessed and purchased quite a few, so when I saw that hardaker and pope  were doing this workshop I quickly sent Jo an email to see if there was still space.

I'm all registered for the learn to love your sewing machine workshop next week.  It will be very exciting to learn more about sewing and to meet Sarah & Jo, I have been following their blog for a while.

 I'll make sure to post a pictures! xoxo

Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine:

If you are a little uncertain about how to use your sewing machine this is the workshop for you. We will teach you how to love your sewing machine, building your confidence and showing you tricks of the trade to help you with any sewing project. We'll spend the morning looking at techniques and after a yummy lunch you can put your new skills to the test when you design and create your own cushion cover. This workshop will cover the following:

  • understanding your sewing machine
  • button holes
  • zips
  • piping
  • applique
  • tips & tricks
The day costs £50 including lunch, coffee, tea, cakes and all materials. At the end of the day you will go home with a techniques file and a full set of instructions for completing or recreating your piece.

    This sounds like an awesome class! Can I request a cushion from our Ikea fabric for my little room? :)
