What is tufting
Tufting, an ancient craft with a modern twist, involves using a tufting gun machine to create unique textures on fabric. Artisans thread yarn through fabric with precision, crafting beautiful patterns efficiently.
Unlike traditional rug hooking, tufting with a machine allows for increased productivity and the creation of intricate designs. Join Yolo Craft’s tufting workshops to experience the enchanting world where creativity meets fabric in delightful and efficient ways!

Each tufting workshop appointment is based on one frame, and we welcome up to two people to share this experience. Due to the size limitations of the frame, participants will need to take turns; simultaneous tufting on a single frame is not possible. This ensures each participant has enough space and time to engage with the process and enjoy crafting their tufted art.
Participants should be 12 years or older, primarily for safety and the ability to handle the tools.
The duration of our tufting workshop depends on the frame size you select:
Small Frame (up to 20inch x 20inch): Roughly 3 hours.
Medium Frame (up to 27inch*27inch): Roughly 4 hours, with a second session included if needed.
Large Frame (up to 35inch*35inch): Roughly 5 hours, with a second session included if needed.
If you’re working with a small frame and can’t finish in one session, you can book a second visit for a 10% service fee. For medium and large frames, a second session can be booked at no extra charge to ensure you have ample time to perfect your creation.
