    TUFTING CLASS: Beginner Tufting

    We know! Our tufting classes are selling out quickly. If you are available during weekday afternoons, you can book a one-on-one or small group private tufting class for the same price. 

    It's time to learn to tuft! We'll spend the afternoon shooting yarn out of a gun into fabric to create some amazing wall hangings.

    We provide frames, fabric, yarn and tufting guns for you – all you need to provide is your design idea. We'll contact you after you purchase your ticket to find out what you plan to tuft. 

    • You will be using a frame that is approximately 30 x 30 inches

    • We will focus on getting comfortable with the gun and the movement

    • We will use acrylic yarn so the piece you make will be best hung on a wall. We will have yarn available for you - but if you would like to use something specific, you are welcome to bring size 4 acrylic yarn. 

    • Instructions on how to finish your piece will be provided at the end of the class and you can finish it on your own time.

    This class will take place at Monster. Our address is 1716 NW Market Street, Seattle, WA 98107. It's at the intersection of 17th and NW Market Street - kitty corner from Mighty-O Donuts.

    Everyone who attends the class will receive 20% off their same-day purchases at Monster - excluding gift cards, class tickets and original art. Fair warning: this discount is going away at the end of 2023. 

    If you cannot attend class for any reason, we will offer an exchange to another class currently on our schedule up to 48 hours before the class. After that time, no refunds or exchanges are issued out of respect for our teachers who purchase and prepare supplies based on the number of attendees.

    Our current Covid protocol is that anyone attending an event can email us at to let us know they prefer that people wear masks and/or we check vaccination records up to 72 hours before the event begins. Your request is anonymous to all the other participants.

    Fantastic Tufting Class!

    My mom and I booked a private beginner Tufting class with Rosalie and it WAS SO MUCH FUN! Rosalie was so patient in teaching us and helping us whenever we had questions. I went in not having any experience or knowledge of this art form and left learning so much. This class is such a good gift idea or activity to do with friends. It was easy enough for a beginner like me who doesn't have much experience in crafting. I highly recommend. Thank you so much Rosalie for hosting such a memorable experience for my mom and I!
