Learn to sew
Piping on a cushion cover really adds that extra finishing touch and gives a really professional look, add in a contrast colour or co-ordinating colour, you can be as artistic as you want with this technique.
Adding a lapped zip is also a great way of adding a zip without having to insert it into the seam along with the piping and it looks so neat and tidy too
A fabric kit will be sent to you prior to the workshop, so please allow time for this.
You will learn:
How to make piping using ready made bias binding and cord

Really happy with this course. It completely delivered what it promised and more. Judi was a great teacher and a lot of fun. She went out of her way to adapt the course for my wants and take me through all that I needed very patiently. I like the zoom 1-2-1 in these times and pleased that it worked so well. I'll be looking for more like this, and definitely more from Judi. Thank you.
