We’re pleased to host nationally recognized machine rug tufter Tim Eads!

Dates: Sept. 21st & 22nd (Two classes available)

Time: 10am - 4pm

Cost: $199, includes all supplies and a small frame you can take home.

Class limit: 12 people per class

Participants will be introduced to using power tufting machines to create rugs by hand. During the 6-hour class, we'll cover the basics of setting up the backing cloth and frame, threading and working the tufting machines. You'll begin creating your own rug or pillow design that is 22" x 22". You will also learn how to cut, glue, and finish a rug for use on the floor or as a wall hanging.

The tufting frame, cloth and yarn are included in the cost of the workshop. Additional supplies and the tufting machine will be available for purchase at a discounted price.

I'll provide tufting machines to used during the workshop so you don't need one to take the class. I will also offer discounts for participants on machines and supplies after the class.
