Want a little extra guidance when learning to tuft? Prefer a smaller class size? Our private lessons and group parties are perfect for small groups! Consider joining us for a date night, birthday party or special celebration. We can host a party for people as young as 10 years old.
In this hands-on private workshop, participants will learn to use power tufting machines to create a rug or wall hanging. The class will cover the basics of setting up a tufting frame with stretched primary cloth and threading and operating tufting machines. Participants will work on projects of their own design on a frame that can accommodate pieces 22 x 22 inches. Instructions for how to cut, glue, and finish a tufted piece will also be provided.**
