TUFTING

After waiting 90 days for my tufting gun to arrive, I could finally start my own "tufting journey" the 15th of March 2021.

The wait was all worth it, and I'm having so much fun working with tufting.

Tufting is a type of textile weaving in which a thread is inserted on a primary base (a tufting cloth). Tufting is the way soft, fluffy rugs are often made. You can do it all by hand, (punch needle), but the technique I use involves a TUFTING GUN that shoots a needle up to 45 times a second into fabric, enabling you to make plush, tactile patterns, all by pulling a trigger.

On my Instagram feed and TikTok (@sosialantenne) you can see videos on how the whole process works, and how I make my tufted pieces from start to finish.
