Tucker Technique Class: Square Squared

Learn the Studio 180 Design Tucker Tools in a hands on class. Bring your sewing machine and learn seven of the tools in a class taught by a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor Rosella Hanson. Tucker Tools use a sew before you cut method to create blocks that trim up to the perfect size with a seam allowance. Deb Tucker creates tools with the math needed to oversize blocks with enough room to trim them down. The tools included will be the Wing Clipper, V Block, Corner Beam, Tucker Trimmer, Square Squared, Diamond Rects and Split Rects. Each tool makes blocks in multiple sizes. Come and make the size (or sizes) you want and learn how to incorporate the Tucker Techniques into patterns you already own. As a bonus there is an optional project for each tool. Stop in the shop to see samples of the blocks and the optional projects. Classes taught by Rosella Hanson, who is a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design. She has a long sewing and quilting history and has been actively quilting for 30 years. She has taught classes, has a pattern line Get the Point Quilt Designs, designed a Techniques Sheet for Studio 180 Designs and presents new ideas to other Certified Instructors.

Clothesline Club Group 1

We have had such an overwhelming request for more 1930's projects, that we are starting the Clothesline Club! We will meet monthly on the 4th Monday of the month from 1-4 pm. Each month we will focus on a 1930's block and it's history. We will also focus on a color of the month and hand out a scrap piece of reproduction fabric, that can be used in the next month's block. You can choose to make the focus 1930's block, or make a different one, using the scrap piece of reproduction fabric. By the end of the year, you will have made a minimum of 12 blocks to add to your 1930's quilt, and when people comment on your quilt, you can tell them a snip-it of history behind each block! Each month there will be show and tell, a teaching technique, history lesson, and time to sew! The cost is $20 for the year and if you bring a block each month for show and tell, you will receive the next month's pattern and color fabric free!
