Have you ever though about combining a stay at a B&B with learning a new skill … or perhaps you and some friends are looking for a relaxing crafting weekend break?

Visit the Silver Daisy page for more crafting options or browse the Stay & Craft theme but here I’m going to highlight one option:

Cushion cover making

Chose from a variety of fabrics and make your own 40 cm x 40 cm cushion cover. The workshop is suitable for beginners and there are no fiddly zips to fit with the envelope style closure that you will use.

If you stay locally and wish to attend crafting sessions with friends, please email me to discuss your dates, numbers and requirements. I’m also happy to arrange crafting sessions with afternoon tea for groups of 2 – 8 people (depending upon the craft) when I don’t have any B&B guests booked in.

You will be shown how to do a few basic sewing techniques such as strip quilting, piecing fabrics and appliqué plus other embellishment techniques.

You can opt to do cushion cover making as a single session or you could choose it as one of your options on the Mix ‘n’ Match weekend course.

Details about prices and how to book can be found on the Silver Daisy page.

If you’d prefer to bring your own fabric so that you make a cushion cover that better matches your decor then you are welcome to do so. You will need to bring a piece of fabric larger than the following minimum size: 50 cm x 120 cm.

 

Most fabrics can be used but be warned that very fine fabrics are difficult to work with and not particularly suitable for cushion cover manufacture.
