Tuffet Retreat




Have you been wanting to make a tuffet?  Then you will definitely want to join us for this retreat taught by certified teacher, Sylvi Sealy.   This is an awesome opportunity to learn from the best! We are bringing her to Celeste, Texas to teach you to make your own tuffet.   Sylvi helped her students make over 500 tuffets last year.  Check out her Facebook page: sewcolorfulquilts.  Lodging and teacher fee will be $166 + meals and supplies.  Arrival for this retreat is any time after 3 p.m. on Thursday July 14th.

Sylvi requires you purchase her hardware kit to prevent unnecessary complications from any inferior products.  Here are the benefits of her kit:
1.  Furniture grade plywood instead of MDF board for foundation with holes drilled and bolts/nuts included
2.  Top quality SOFA grade foam - will not just give in to weight
3.  Decorative upholstery nails instead of just staples to finish the bottom
4.  Choice of 10-12 tuffet feet to match fabrics & home decor/floors
5.  Special upholstery batting included
6.  Cording included
7.  Use of her professional upholstery tools for assembly during retreat
8.  Sylvi has experience helping over 500 tuffets
