Sewing Class: Make a Tuffet

Regular price $150.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Impress your family and friends with a Tuffet footstool that you have put together, using your own colour scheme. In our 2 session workshop, Zoe will guide you to make your Tuffet. 

 You will be supplied with your prepaid Tuffet Hardware Kit and be shown how to sew the 8 panels using a fusible foundation pattern. A lesson / assistance in upholstery will be given, so everyone will leave with a beautiful individual Tuffet, to become a conversation piece at home.

Our class will be at the John Knox Centre.

 

Light lunch, tea, coffee and refreshments included on both days.

Bring with you

  • Sewing Machine with a ¼ “seam allowance foot.
  • Rotary Cutter and Cutting mat
  • Add-A-Quarter Ruler 12” or your own ruler
  • 64 strips: 2” x 20” of fabric. If you want to coordinate fabrics, you can use a jellyroll of pre-cut 2 ½ “strips but there will be some wastage. If you would like to make one with the wider strips showcasing a feature fabric, you will require 8 strips x 5 1/2" x 20", 16 strips x 2" x 20" and 8 strips 3" x 20".
  • Calico 114cm wide x 100cm
  • Sewing thread to match the majority of your fabrics ( I often use grey )
  • Choices of fabric and 4” square of batting to cover your button.
  • Lots of straight pins
  • Scissors.
