Hello and a warm welcome to Cushion Cottage. I’m Sally and I am the owner of Cushion Cottage. I have loved sewing since my childhood when i was taught to sew by my mother who was a talented seamstress making all her own clothes and soft furnishings. My love of fabric started when I was given offcuts and scraps of material to sew on my toy sewing machine. My passion for sewing grew with me and when I had a home and family of my own the skills I had learned become invaluable, however once my 3 daughters had grown I went back to working full time and my sewing machine was packed away.
In 2013 my twin daughters were both expecting babies and asked if I would make curtains and bedding for their nurseries as they were unable to find what they were looking for on the High Street and my love of sewing and fabric was re-kindled and Cushion Cottage was born (along with 2 bouncing baby girls)
At my first craft fair the name Cushion Cottage came to me spontaneously as I was selling some of my lovely cushions which have a cottage chic style so it seemed to be the perfect choice for me. Many of my fabrics are still in the vintage elegant shabby cottage chic style which I adore.
Everything at Cushion Cottage is handmade by me and many of my items are one off and completely unique giving my customers the opportunity to own a truly bespoke “one off” item whether they are buying a specially commissioned order or from my ready-made ranges. I only use the best fabrics and materials preferring to use linens, cotton and fabrics from the UK . This assures that all the items I am making are of the highest quality and standard for my valuable customers.
