Cushion Rejuvenation + DVD

with Aurora Sisneros

Do you want to add a little more personality into your home? Tired of needing new cushions every season? Are you someone who wants to change up your décor on a regular basis? This class is just for you!

We tend to throw away cushions when they have a tear or have been bleached from the sun, but with this class, you will have the opportunity to save your cushions and make them look brand new! From rejuvenating old cushions with rips or ones that have lost their color from the sun, to giving your patio furniture a little festivity for summer, Aurora will give you the techniques you need to know to put a unique touch to your furniture. In this class, you will have the opportunity to learn all you need, whether you are making one cushion or many! Aurora will also give you great insight on:

  • How to choose your fabric
  • The easiest way to measure your cushion and get a perfect right angle
  • Assembling and shaping the cushion
  • Insight on a variety of projects you will be able to do after this class

You will have the opportunity to learn how to measure cushions and find out how much fabric is needed, as well as learn to make a zipper, giving you the flexibility to change the design whenever you wish!

If you are looking for a fun and multi-purpose skill that will brighten up your home inside and out, start here and now! Also included is a downloadable and printable step-by-step guide and formula sheet to perfect your measurements.

NOTE: You’ll receive this Class video instruction in two forms: As on-demand streaming video (in your NSC Account); and as a physical DVD, mailed to you.

Aurora Sisneros

Aurora grew up around sewing, her mother is a master seamstress who got her into sewing at an early age, and in turn, she got her mother into knitting and crochet after discovering it to be a more portable addiction. After spending 15 years as an IT professional, she realized that many women with high-stress responsibilities — either in the workplace or in the home — need a hobby in order to de-stress. It is her drive to inspire and support women to find their creative side through sewing and crafting!
