2017 Tuffet Retreats and Classes

Kim continues to teach tuffet making (whimsical footstools) at the local quilt shop, the Waterwheel House Quilt Shop.  She has scheduled a two-part class held on separate weekends.  Part I is scheduled for Saturday, January 21st at which time students will learn how to piece the top, make the button, and prep the top for completion.  Part II is scheduled for Saturday, February 4th when students will finish the construction of the tuffet.  This is a 64-piece tuffet like the one pictured above.  The Waterwheel House has these gorgeous pre-cuts in the colorway Kim used or in the other colorways.  The classes are limited to 5 students, so book early!

A weekend-long tuffet class and retreat is being scheduled for the weekend of February 24-26, 2017 here at the inn. This will be a great opportunity to make a tuffet as a gift for a special occasion (think wedding, housewarming, graduation, or new baby gift), or just for yourself!  With dinners, lunches, breakfasts, lodging, and sewing time, this will be similar to the quilting retreats we offer, but we will be making a tuffet - practical and whimsical!

Call if you have questions on either the class at the quilt shop or the tuffet retreat.  As always, we look forward to being your hosts!
