ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

In collaboration with Helen, founder of Freda Moss Designs, we will teach you how to make your own Star Stitch cushion cover from beautiful merino yarn and soft cotton fabric, and attach the fabric backing and finish off the cushion. You will have a choice of 20 colours of yarn and will be able to take your finished product home with you at the end of the day.

This is an intermediate class. You would need to be able to cast on, cast off, knit, purl and decrease. Some experience of using a sewing machine would help too. We'll teach you the rest!

200g Wool Couture super-chunky yarn

Approx 0.45m x 0.45m iron-on interlining, heavy-weight

Approx 0.9m x 0.45m medium-weight fabric without much stretch, such as a woven cotton, a lighter-weight denim, or linen
