Create a beautiful Keepsake Cushion with your favourite children’s clothes or with items from a loved one lost. This is a great way to keep memories alive or make a beautiful gift for someone close. I will guide you through step by step over two sessions on how to make a cushion cover in a patchwork style. Each session will be around 2 hours and there will be sewing machines available to use. Just bring your clothes and your memories ( and cake, if you want )
(Cushion inners not included but can be pre-ordered for £3 each if you get in touch before the workshop. Don’t panic if you forget or don’t have time, inners are easy to get in many local home ware stores or by ordering on line).
This workshop is suitable for adults although children 10 + could also take part.
There is a minimum number of people for this course to run so if it doesn't make it we will be in touch a few days before the first date.
