About the Author
Tiernan Alexander and Tim Eads are Texas-born artists and business owners living and working in West Philadelphia. In 2018 they started Tuft the World, which provides tufters the high-quality tools, materials, and instruction they need to make their own incredible projects. They have led tufting workshops across North America and collaborated with industry leaders in rug design and carpet manufacturing. Alexander holds an MA from the prestigious Winterthur Program in American Material Culture and an MFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Along with being a gifted tufter, Eads is a master printer and holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
"Tufting, once considered a mid-twentieth-century craft, has been transformed into an art. Part art book, part how-to guide, their book also shares 15 projects that range from floor mats and rugs to wall hangings and shawl collars...This will provide great inspiration."


?"Order your yarn, tufting gun, and other supplies because you'll be ready to get started once you finish reading this! A wonderfully written book that weaves together the history of rugs, fun facts, great instruction--and filled with gorgeous full-color photos."

--Christina Roberts, Director of Education, Fabric Workshop and Museum

"Not only is Tim Eads one of the most respected and knowledgeable artists in his field, but he's one of the best teachers as well. I know this from firsthand experience watching him share his love of tufting to students as a visiting teacher in my studio. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning tufting or expanding their knowledge."

--Arounna Khounnoraj, artist, author, and co-founder of bookhou

"An informative and rich compendium of all things tufting, heavy on examples with great illustrations."

--Nami Yamamoto, Director of Studio Operations, Fabric Workshop and Museum
