I purchased a day's viewing of the piped cushion videos yesterday and today have a lovely cushion. I am now confident to make more. As you say in your tip the videos are extremely well worthwhile and great value for money! Your written tutorial is clear and extremely high quality, but nothing replaces a good demonstration. Your commentary and hints are very helpful and the close-up shots are superb. Thank you so much from a grateful sewer. PS I haven't tacked for a long time but followed your advice to do this on the zip, and got superior results.

Wanting to make Bolster Cushions - have you any tutorials on that yet ?

I'm afraid a bolster cushion tutorial is so far down the list, it will be a long time before we get to it.
Try diydesign and search for bolster. Great instructions.

how to you get the free written instructions. Do you just do a screen shot and print from the screen?

Was very proud of myself today when I followed all your steps and made a lovely piped cushion with a zip. I have always been a bit wary of zips but now I know that I can do it!

You can view on your phone, ipad etc, We will look at PDFs when we have finished all the tutorials
Do you have any plans for a guide on how to make a seat pad please?

We do make window seat pads etc but have no plans at the moment to make any tutorials.
