ZipsDo you break out in a cold sweat when you think about sewing a zip? Do you avoid buying patterns you love because they have a zip?

After years of talking to people about sewing, I’ve discovered that one of the things that fills folks with dread is the humble zipper! Fears be gone! This empowering new workshop will focus on stitching zips and will be a real confidence booster!

In the workshop you will learn my tips and tricks for inserting a standard dress zip and an invisible zip while making two basic square cushions.

Facilitator: Julie Hillier


  • 1 x 35cm dress zip and 1 x 35cm invisible zip (the zips should match the fabric you bring)
  • 2 x .5m of medium weight cotton fabric (This could be two different fabrics or the same fabric)
  • Co-ordinating thread to match your fabric/s
  • 2 x 45cm cushion inserts

What do you take home?: Two awesome new cushions plus real zipper skills!
