Edge Trimmed Cushions
Saturday 17 August

Saturday 17 August 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$99.00
Edge trimmed cushion

Edge trimmed cushions: Flair + Style without all the hard work!

Edge trimmed cushionEdge trimming (think piping, fringing, pom poms) really does add a whole new dimension to cushions, but there is no rule that says it has to go right around the cushion!  Add a decorative feature to just the sides of a cushion is EASY and adds interest and individuality in a fraction of the time!!!

This technique looks great on square cushions but is particularly attractive on rectangular cushions. Learn this great technique plus how to insert an invisible zip and you’ll be skilled up to slam out some fabulous new cushions at a rapid rate!!!  Why not consider giving some custom cushions as Christmas gifts?

Join us for this fun session…we’ll have a glass of bubbles on hand plus Julie’s legendary gluten free Christmas shortbread (it’s really really awesome!!!)
