Piped Cushions
Friday 3 July

Friday 3 July 2020 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Piped Cushion Making at Ministry of Handmade

Piped Cushion with Marimba FabricPlease note: This workshop will be held in our studio, and as such there are strictly limited numbers due to COVID restrictions.

In the workshop you will learn:

  • The secrets of great piping techniques – how to cover piping cord with fabric
  • How to insert an invisible zip
  • How to create a piped cushion cover

Experience required: This is not a “learn to sew” class. Participants need to be comfortable using a sewing machine.

Tutor: Lauren Weier
Stack of piped cushionsCourse length: 3.5 hours


  • Piping cord
  • Use of sewing machines and all other equipment

Please bring:

  • .5m of fabric for your cushion cover. Suitable fabrics are cotton, cotton/linen blends, cotton drill, lightweight denim, etc. Please do not bring checks or stripes as these require more skill to create a great finished product. Please note that synthetic, stretch and heavy upholstery weight fabrics are not suitable.
  • .2m of co-ordinating fabric for covering the piping cord. See fabric recommendations above.
  • Matching thread
  • 35cm dress zip (not invisible)
  • 46cm cushion insert – we can supply either a polyester insert ($9) or a luxurious feather/foam insert ($22) on the day if you can’t get to the shops!
