What is
Tufting?

Tufting is the act of using a tufting machine to needle-punch yarn materials into primary tufting cloth. The results of this technique are the making of a handmade rug!

With zero experience needed to start, Tufting is a straightforward experience. An instructor will be present to walk you through the basics of using the equipment, while also being available to answer any questions you may have.
