Check out our new window display- 'Domestic Bliss'! Using co ordinating fabrics in a soft palette of powder blue and coral we have cleverly combined stripes checks and toile de jouy. Our new window features all our Beginner level favourites including the Apron, Bag and Bunting along with some new sewing challenges for you! We have gone slightly cushion crazy.... (they are such a great way to update your sofa, use up your fabric remnants or create a unique gift in no time at all!) makeplace now has over six cushion designs to tempt you from a simple plain envelope to piped, tie, oxford, mini and buttonhole styles. Each cushion project teaches you a different skill from getting getting started with a beginners envelope to inserting a zip or perfecting piping and buttonholes. We have lots of dates for all cushion classes so get yourself booked on one very soon!
