Tools to set up your workspace.

Creating a seat with a WOW that impresses your friends is straightforward when you know how. You will learn about the tools needed and be pleased to learn that most are probably lying around your house, and with the minimum of space needed for organised folks it doesnt take a lot to get started.

Essentials to using an Industrial sewing machine

Theres no long drawn out boring techinal information - you'll be up and sewing in no time. To get the best from your machine you will learn about the important parts, threading, winding your bobbins, setting the tensions, amongst other things. You will learn how to overcome common issues new machine users have so you dont panic when the machine does something unexpected and quickly get back to learning.


With no previous experience you can get into the practical side of things straight away by striping, repairing and preparing your seat ready for its new cover.

Making the cover for your seat

You decide what your WOW looks like. With the secrets to marking up your templates shared, you will learn how to make a cover that fits right first time. You will be able to re create the coverted Double Diamond pattern made so popular in campervan upholstery scene. As well as French seams and top stitch to show off your new skills. In fact if you can dream a pattern you will be able to create it after learning these skills.

Fitting covers

Your Wow comes from the impact of seeing your seat fitted for the first time . By showing you tips to fit your work using the seams in the right way your work will have that professional finish.

Headrests and beyond

To top off your seat you learn how to sew and fit a headrest. At this stage you will be looking for your next project and we will be so proud to welcome you into the next level of learning... But lets get you there first we cant wait to support you in this adventure.

Questions Please !

I Don't have access to a sewing machine any suggestions?

To get the best from this course you need to be able to get use of a walking foot industrial sewing machine. These days its not really worth buying second hand as they are so reasonably priced as brand new. Check out our premium package which includes a sewing machine and delivery.

Where do I get materials from, are suppliers open during the COVID lockdown?

We have materials in stock and can currently supply a kit within the UK via delivery options. It will have all you'll need to complete a single seat and we will dispatch on the day you order so you can start as soon as it arrives. The kit is supplied at £40 and will include : Premium Quality vinyl - 2 Metre Thread Piping Scrim Spray Glue Woodless Graphite pencil Postage and Packing

What support do you offer?

I will be be at the end of your emails, Whats apps and in a Facebook group to make sure you are on track. There will be an opportunity each week to "ASK ME ANYTHING" and I encourage you to send questions which will be answered in a section of the online course.

How do I get my Certificate?

When you complete your course I will ask you to send me a photograph of your completed piece - the bigger the smile while you are standing by your project the better ! A certificate of completion will then issued. A proud moment for us both !

Whats next?

We are massively proud of our students and watching the success they achieve never ceases to amaze me. Once you have this fundamental course completed you can go on to learn so much more. Either by events at our workshop or by joining the online learning area for just £10 per month. In addition to teaching advanced vehicleupholstery skills I also put to good use my experience to help you turn a hobby into a business should that be the route you are thinking of taking.
