Do you have some of Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools still in the package because you're just not sure how to use them? Do you avoid certain quilt patterns because they have flying geese or square-in-a-square units in them? Would you like to take a quilting class to learn techniques you can use over and over rather than leaving class with yet another UFO? Then consider joining Tucker University!
Tucker University is a new and exciting monthly club to help you build accuracy and piecing skills. Each class covers a different Studio 180 Design Tool along with ways to expand the use of the tool. One of the best things about Tucker University is that you'll learn to "Tuckerize" any pattern out there. These are not "single-purpose" specialty rulers to clutter up your work space, but instead they will quickly become the tools you reach for regularly!
Each class builds upon the previous class. As you learn, you'll make 4” units that can be combined to create exciting new blocks. You'll be able to create your own designs with these units and blocks- the possibilities are endless! And, if you use coordinating fabric throughout the course, you'll have fun blocks to stitch into a sampler after your last class.
Phase One of Tucker University is a three-month commitment. The registration fee (one fee covers all three months) includes instruction from a Studio 180 Certified Instructor, a laminated Design Sheet for each tool (offers cutting charts, color planning aids, and a Blackline Master with 20-30 additional block options), and any required Technique Sheets from Studio 180. Hint: You may want to get a binder to organize all these great references!
To sign up for this beginning phase of Tucker University (runs in April, May, and June), choose the session that best fits your schedule below. Tuesday mornings, Tuesday afternoons, and Thursday evenings are offered- make your choice by signing up for what is shown as the April dates and times, and plan to come at that time in May and June as well. A required supply list (fabric, notions, and featured Studio 180 tool) will be sent monthly.
