Adding a new cushion or cover to a chair, barstool or bench can be a great way to add a pop of color to your décor. In this class you will learn how to make custom cushions and covers for all three.

First Ashley Hough will talk about some of the different kinds of fabrics, foam and trim that can be used. The type of fabric and foam you choose to use can differ depending on where you plan to use your cushion or cover- whether indoors or outdoors.

Next you will learn how to measure your own stools, chairs and benches to create pattern pieces and templates to make cushions and covers that fit your specific furniture. Ashley will also show how to make your own piping, so you can have trim that perfectly coordinates with your fabric.

Finally, Ashley will show how to add decorative techniques like tufting to your cushions or covers, which can give your final product a designer look and a more professional finish.

Ashley has sewn for years. Her mother taught her at a very young age. When first starting out, she stuck to mastering commercial patterns before venturing into creating her own. Her patterns have been featured in <em>Sew News</em>, <em>Sew It All</em>, and she has even been on <em>Sew It All TV</em>. Quilting is somewhat new to Ashley, but she dove in head first – coming up with an original design for her first quilt that included curved seams and hand appliqué! She was even lucky enough to have it featured in one of Quilty’s "This is My Quilt" episodes. Ashley loves all things crafty, from sewing to knitting, crochet to quilting, and everything in between. When she isn’t working on a new project or learning a different technique she loves teaching her passion to others.
