Learn how to make your own tufted rug in this tufting workshop in Chicago. Tufting is one of the newest social media sensations for a reason! It's fun, creative, and can be a relaxing craft to help you unwind!

Tufting is a modern take on the traditional craft of rug-making, where you use a tufting gun to weave yarn through a cut of monk's cloth. In this class, you will be able to choose from 100 different yarn colors, to create your custom tufted rug. This collection of yarn is one of the most complete tufting yarn collections in the U.S.!

Your instructor will take you through the basics of how to use a tufting gun and within minutes, you'll be able to create rows of stitches on the one end to see fluffy tufts of yarn blossom on the flipside; slowly hand-making your own personalized rug one tuft at a time! Bring an image of what you would like to turn into a tufted rug and your instructor will help you trace the design onto fabric.

The teachers were helpful and patient, and had specific feedback on how to tuft. They also allowed me to stay 15 minutes past the closing time to patch up some holes in my rug, which was very kind of them.

So much fun! We have to go back to complete our rugs but the entire process was engaging and a great craft to do alone or with friends!

Great introduction to tufting! All the equipment and supplies were set up and readily available, and there were plenty of staff to assist as needed. The instruction was brief, but efficient for an intro class. The rest of the time was spent making our rugs. They help you project your digital image onto the canvas and you trace it to create your design. Then you choose colors and get tufting! We had a lot of fun and all made projects we're excited about!
One thing we did not know beforehand is that the rugs are finished after you leave and will need to be picked up or shipped after several days. This was an added complication/expense for our group from out-of-state.

I was by myself but they showed me how to do it and checked on me regularly. They had many yarn color options which was nice.
