TUFFETS!!! Quilt Market Recap #2

IMG_0114This picture is a bit blurry.  I apologize.  I was so excited to meet our friends Sharyn and Lori, I took this photo too quickly and well, you get the (fuzzy) picture 😉

This is Sharyn Cole (pictured on left), our friend and designer of the Tuffet.  Lori College (holding the mini tuffet on the right)  is Store Manager at Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill, NC and is friends with Sharyn.

Sharyn made these amazing tuffets for us out of our new Ombre Scroll fabrics we launched at Quilt Market in Houston.  The mini one was made just for us and we fell in love immediately, how can you not?

A tuffet is an upholstered stool, like a small ottoman.  They are so chic!

Sharyn’s passion is making tuffets.  She started her own business called “Tuffet Source”.  Her imaginative creations are lovely.  I cannot get over the different variations of tuffets in her gallery.  It is kind of amazing to see!  I hope you stop by her site and check it out, I will put her link at the bottom of the blog.  Her passion shines through in her work. It is always so wonderful to meet someone who enjoys their work so much and is so generous to share their creativity and passion with others.  THANK YOU SHARYN!!!

In our office here, we have to say TUFFET with a loud and proud voice!  When I first spoke with Sharyn on the phone, my co-worker noticed I was yelling TUFFET with such gusto and excitement.   It’s kind of the only way to say it now… Anyway, we are super excited, can’t you tell?
