Exclusive Home + Design Show Class

23 Sep

We’re taking the show on the road this October for a one-day sewing class that we won’t offer anywhere else.

Processed with Snapseed.

The Comfy Couch Cushion with Buttons class will be hosted at the Vancouver Home + Design Show on Saturday, October 29th. For $35 you’ll get to make a one of a kind couch cushion that you can make and take home the same day. Best of all admission to the show is complimentary with purchase ($16 value) so you’ll also get to browse all the exciting exhibitors at the Convention Centre.

Pillow

Pillows will consist of one print and one solid fabric with two covered buttons on each side of the pillow. A simple class that delivers a beautiful result. You’ll have the skills after class to whip up a whole couch full of these beauties! Great for gifts or for your own home we’ll teach you the skills to make your own creation.

We’ve created this class to be a manageable two-hour course especially for the show, so if this looks like the class for you don’t hesitate! Call the store at 604-879-3031 to register or view our classes page for more details.
