You will learn how to create a fabric top from your choice of fabrics to match your decor - you will have one week to finish that step and second class you will construct your Tuffet for a beautiful finished piece of furniture for your home.
What a great gift idea, just in time for Christmas giving.
If you want to make more than one, you do not have to buy two patterns. You can purchase a refill paper kit from Sylvi - please let her know if you will be needing a refill kit.
You must purchase your initial pattern from Quilter's Cottage. You must purchase your hardware kits and feet from Sylvi. NO EXCEPTIONS.
If you show up with pattern and kit purchased elsewhere, you will be charged an extra $60 class fee.
