Tuffet Class - 2 part class

Classes are limited to 10 people.  First session is 4 hours where you will learn foundation piecing to make your cover consisting of 8 panels.  You will hopefully complete 2 panels in class and the rest will be homework.  The second session is also 4 hours and you will come with a completed top ready to upholster the Tuffet. See below for what is included in the kit.
