  • I loved the Workroom Tech online Basic Pillows class. Very informative and easy to understand. Susan answered all my questions and explained everything thoroughly. I learned how to insert all kinds of zippers. Now all I need to do is perfect everything I learned by practicing all the techniques.                                                   ~Sofia N.

    "I loved the class and learned so much.  My favorite thing that I learned was how to put a zipper in a pillow with welt cord. I now feel confident that I could make pillows in just about any style".
