TUFFETS - Sunday, July 9th 1:00 to 4:00

and Sunday, July 16th, 1:00 to 5:00.

Here's an opportunity to make a really unique accent piece for your home or for a special gift.  In these two classes, you will learn to sew and assemble a striking "tuffet" (ottoman) with your own choice of fabric and commercial grade finishing materials provided by the teacher, Kerin Ferrin of Rye, NH.  Tuition of $70 will be payable upon registration.  You will also need to purchase your pattern with iron-on foundation at that time ($28) and will need 1 1/4 yards of muslin and a 12" Add-a-Quarter ruler.

The finishing kit, which includes the wooden platform, commercial grade foam filling and button form, will cost an additional $80 and will be payable at the time of the first lesson.  Wooden feet are optional and can be ordered from Kerin for approximately $40.
