I have been on a number of Jacqueline’s courses and loved every one so thought I’d give this one a go too! It was perfect - I got to be very creative in using left over bits of material from previous course I had attended. I love how my pillows now match my lampshades. Jacqueline was great at finding a way of using all my little bits and bobs of fabric and trims in the best way possible! Thank you so much Jac - yet again a fabulous weekend!

Response from JSInteriorsUK:

Ahh yes Karina, we don't throw anything away. All the scraps from window treatments and lampshades are fabulously important as they can bring a whole room scheme together with a few scatter cushions. Your cushions are gorgeous, well done you!

I’m so proud of what I achieved on this course - two amazing cushions, new skills and a shed load of creative ideas! I thought I knew how to make scatter cushions but not like these ones! Zips, piping, beaded trims - loved it! A relaxed, friendly course with lots of help and tips - Jacqueline certainly knows what she’s talking about and is brimming with ideas and advice. Well worth it whether creating for personal use or something more ambitious - highly recommended

Response from JSInteriorsUK:

Thank you Hazel for your lovely review, your cushions were beautiful and I was totally impressed with all your creative ideas.
