From Sample Book to Sofa–A Throw Pillow Workshop


Who ever said good things come in small packages must have been talking about these discontinued decorator sample books–

The fabrics are breathtaking.  The price is right.

And while the pieces are relatively small, you can still turn these samples into big impact pillows. 

On May 17th from 6-9, I’ll  be teaching  a sample-to-sofa  throw pillow workshop at my favorite source for beautiful, reclaimed  fabrics, The Scrap Exchange in Durham. 

Called “Design it, Stitch it, Throw it,”  the three-hour workshop is just $20, and open to all skill levels. 

The Scrap Exchange has sewing machines in their design studio or you can bring your own.  And I’m going to bring a pile of my own fabric samples to share, along with their great collection of reclaimed textiles.  

I’ll also demo installing a quick and easy zipper.   Just bring your own pillow form to recover–and your creativity. 

Here’s the link to sign up and get hooked on making beautiful pillows.  Tell all your crafty friends!
