I purchased 4 sqm Foam, material and zips to make some seating for our hut outside.
Keith Smith in Holland Parade provided it all but is unable to take the work on for a while so looking to get someone else to do it.
I need someone handy with a Sewing machine to just wrap the material around the foam/sponge and make 3 big cushions out of it.
Thank you

Regards

Not sure if she will be able to help but can recommend Julie's Alterations in St Osyth Road - nearly opposite the small Tesco's.  She has an industrial machine and has done a lot of alteration work, for me, in the past.

I used Sprung Classics once and never again, luckily I came across Marine Upholstery by Val tel 434378 or 07904 786431   www.marineupholsterybyval.co.uk

Made great pocket cushion covers for me and recovered dining chairs etc

Stuart I can sew, is the foam cut to size? If so if you tell me the sizes, I will make a template and make one up to size in spare material, then bring it to you for fitting before cutting your material.

Can you??
Yes the foam is already cut to size (total 4sqm) and we have 9sqm of material with Zips to stitch in.
Only issue is, i gave him the wrong measurement for the foam so i have an extra bit and have the Spray Glue to stick it together..
I'll take a pic of the seating and post a pic on here later, let me know if you can do it, when and how much 🙂
Thanks xx

Is it 3 separate cushions, if so just give me the overall measurements and depth of 1 cushion and I'll go from there. If I can do it it, it will be a freebie.

I should add if it is upholstery  fabric, it will be too thick for my machine to cope with as will need special needle and threads as well, so will be unable to do them.

Here are the pics.
The Foam is in 3 sections like an "L" shape with two long bits and the triangle kind of shape in the middle.

The foam is 3 inch thick and seating cloth isn't very thick,  so should be OK for a standard needle. 
If you're passing pop in and i'll show you 🙂
I'll go and take a pic of the Cloth so you can see it for now.
