Arrival – Students arrive between 8:00 am and 8:30 am.

Introductions – Once everyone’s fabrics are brought inside and set up, we take a few minutes to visit and get to know one another.

Getting Started – Then it’s time to start making a duvet cover.

What to Expect on Day One – By the end of day one, your duvet cover should be just about complete. Sound like a lot? Don’t worry because you’ve already done your homework from the PDF instructions sent to you after you register.

Lunch Time – At 12:30 pm we take a 1-hour break

Quitting Time – We end the day around 4:30 – 5:00. With all the information you’ve learned, you’ll be ready for a break!


What to Expect on Day Two – You will make a tailored bed skirt on a band. A tailored bed skirt has a pleat on each side and a pleat at the corner at the foot of the bed. For ease of installing your bed skirt, the skirt will be made on a band, rather than a deck.

Depending on you, this should be complete by the end of the day. Whew! And you will also have gotten to know the other students and begun to form new friendships.

Lunch Time – At 12:30 pm we take a 1-hour break

Quitting Time – Expect to end the day between 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm


What to Expect on Day Three – You will make a pillow sham today. I always say making pillows is like the icing on the cake. So, I guess you can say it’s cake day. The pillow sham will have a few unique details and will coordinate with your duvet cover and bed skirt.

Today you leave with a bedding ensemble ready to dress up your room at home! Twin, full, or queen size.

Lunch Time – At 12:30 pm we take a 1-hour break

Quitting Time – Expect to end the day no later than 4:00 pm

Donna helps you build your confidence so you can take your sewing skills to the next level.

Grab your spot now and let Donna show you how to create beautiful bedding!

What people are saying about our workshops…

“What a fun weekend. Five very different chairs, all complete and looking incredible. I enjoyed Ashfield so much. I stayed at a wonderful Air BnB owned by two artist and their dog Charlie. Each day we worked non stop, in this spacious and well lit barn, provided by our host Amy, along with incredible comfort food. Kim guided us with every detail, introduced us to new tools and tricks to give us confidence and pride in the results. Big thank you to Bill and Kim for setting this up. We are fortunate to know you.”

Heather Taylor, Owner, Custom Textiles
“The three day upholstery workshop I took with Kim from Kim’s Upholstery was fabulous! I found Kim to be energetic and knowledgeable. The class was composed of five women with five different chairs. This did not phase Kim in the least. She was able to transition from assisting one attendee to another with ease and made it seem effortless. I am very happy with my finished chair and feel confident in attempting to upholster another chair after taking this class. I know she is an email or phone call away if I have any questions. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in upholstering, beginner or intermediate.”
Julie Wood, Owner, The Leading Edge Drapery
“I attended a three day workshop in Northborough, MA last year with 4 other ladies and we had a blast learning and enjoying each other’s company whilst working hard. We had Kim with us all the way, and each of us having a different chair, we learned different skills watching them do their chairs. Kim helped us from the bare wood upwards until the finished product and it was a pleasure. She explained every technique we did and the correct order of upholstering our piece of furniture. Now, if we have any questions we know that she is only an email or phone call away from asking her questions. I am a hands on learner so this was very helpful having Kim by my side all the way.”
Linda, Student, Upton, MA
