Tuffet Making with Calico Kate
Instruction takes place on Wednesdays at 4.30 pm for about an hour, by prior booking and purchase of tuffet kit and all fabrics from Calico Kate.
Maximum three students at a time! All sewing takes place at your home.
Instructions come with the full kit, so a little reading is necessary before you start and there is a small amount of preparation before the first session.
You will need a sewing machine (for home sewing), rotary cutter, ruler and cutting board, needles, pins and machine sewing thread.
**I do not charge, but love to share what I have learned and love doing; all I ask is that the tuffet kit and all fabrics are purchased from Calico Kate **
