June Workshop: The Tuffet Class

Tuffet [tuhf-it] - A low upholstered seat or footstool, hassack, or ottoman

ACQ is excited to offer you The Tuffet Workshop with Cathy Burk!  Cathy is a certified tuffet instructor who completed her training with Tuffet Source and teaches regularly at Lyons Quilting in Lyons, CO.  This will be an in-person class!

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 and turn that cover into an upholstered footstool during the second session.  Tuffets measure approximately 18" in diameter.  Once you've made your first tuffet, you will want to make more!


In addition to the fabric required for the tuffet (see Fabric and Sewing Supply list), you will also need the Pattern and the Tuffet Finishing Kit.  The kit will be sold to us at a wholesale cost of $155.00 which includes the pattern, all hardware & assembly supplies, 4 solid wooden feet, and shipping charges (see Kit Information and Foot Options below).  

After selecting which Foot Style and Color you would like, please fill out the FOOT SELECTION FORM  below which will be forwarded to the instructor by the Program Chairman.  The instructor will then send each registrant an Invoice for payment to be made directly to her.

All kits and foot selections MUST be ordered by May 19th to arrive in time for the class. 

These kits will NOT be shipped to you individually but will be provided to you at the class.
