Here at Bristol Upholstery Collective we love to inspire confidence and an enjoyment of all skills related to upholstery, and of course, sewing is an essential skill required in the completion of most upholstered projects.

If you are working on an Arm Chair that has a loose cushion seat, you are likely to need some guidance in how to sew a BOX Cushion - to do this you'll need experience on a sewing machine, so we suggest you attend our fun Beginners Sewing Workshop before jumping in, head first and getting flustered.

It'll be beneficial for you to befriend your own sewing machine, if you have one already, and you'll also get to have a go on our Walking Foot Machines.
