Boxed Cushion Class

Boxed Cushion Upholstery Class

We had a blast with Annie, Marie and Char, making cushion covers for their respective projects in the Build Your Own Boxed Cushion Workshop. Their respective projects were a pair of mid-century chairs, sofa cushions, and a dog bed.

Marie took on the project of replacing all of the cushions for her sofa – after learning the steps start-to-finish and completing one cushion in class, she finished the rest at home within one week!

About the Author

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →

    Hi Susan,
    I answered this via personal email, but wanted to let others know that I am currently scheduling some of these classes on demand. There’s a great bring-a-friend discount for 3 people signing up together!
