TUFFET



Tuffets can add a touch of whimsy to your home that blend with all decors and bridge the gap between design and function.  In addition to being heirloom home accents, they make treasured gifts for special occasions including weddings, new babies, anniversaries and special birthdays.

 

Join us and learn to sew a gorgeous tuffet cover during the first class session (you may need to complete at home before the second session).  During the second session, which is 2 weeks after the first session, we will turn that cover into an upholstered footstool. 

 

In addition to the fabric required for the tuffet (see supply list), you will also need:

  •         The Tuffet Source 18” Pieced Tuffet Pattern ($25.00) which is available at Lyons Quilting. 

 

  •         The Tuffet Finishing Kit from the Tuffet Source, http://tuffetsource.com/product-category/kits/      either the Tuffet Kit with Feet or The Assembled Tuffet Kit.  You will need to order the Finishing Kit in advance so you will have them in time for the second session.

 

 The pattern and Finishing Kit includes everything you need to turn your fabric into a completed tuffet.
