Running out of places to go on a date? Bring your loved one to make a personalised rug with any pattern they want!

Beginning operations in the first quarter of 2022, Tuftme describes themselves as Malaysia's modern take on the traditional craft of rug-making. 

Hitting the Klang Valley (and our Instagram feed) over the past few weeks, this establishment has tufting workshops for those who are looking for a new hobby to embark on that'll challenge their creativity.

Everything needed to make a rug is provided, so you'll learn all the intricacies it takes to create your own

From the tufting gun, tufting frame, and over 50 different variations of coloured cotton yarn to choose from, you'll have a ball (of yarn) tufting these rugs.

For those with less steady hands, you can opt to use their projector to help sketch a design onto the base.

Each workshop class favours detail and precision, so you'll be able to master all the basics when operating the tufting gun

The workshop is described as a hands-on instructional class, so you won't be left in the lurch in case you've got no idea how the tufting process works.

From creating a simple row of stitches, the repetition of the process to create fluffy tufts of yarn will slowly develop into what you've envisioned it to be.

While we are all experts in our own right, Tuftme ensures that you'll leave with a rug that's exceptional and superb.

After completing the workshop, members of the team will cover the finishing touches of the rug before you can take it home. This includes trimming, shaving, and applying the final backing to the rug. Come back to the studio and collect your personalised rug in two to three weeks, depending on their stipulation.

From animals, funny phrases, linguistic symbols, video game characters, and cartoon characters, you can even create a tufted rug with a mirror to hang up on your wall instead.

Not just for adults, kids above the age of 10 can come and make their own rugs too

Beginner-friendly to adults and children, bring your kids who are 10 and above to learn about the procedure and tools that go into making a perfectly tufted rug. 

Super fun and therapeutic, attending a tufting workshop would be a great activity for a day out with the kids.
