TUCKER UNIVERSITY 2022—FRESHMAN YEAR
What is Tucker University? It is a series of workshops which walk you through the Studio 180 Design Tools. These tools, designed by Deb Tucker, will take your piecing accuracy to the next level. Each tool allows you to make basic units that are then trimmed to precise measurements. Say goodbye to chopped off points or mis-matched intersections! Your basic units will be precise, which will, in turn, make your blocks accurate, which will then make your quilt tops go together with ease.
Classes will meet on the second FULL WEEK of each month. You may choose either a Wednesday class or a Friday class each month—whichever works best for your schedule that week.
TUCKER UNIVERSITY JANUARY 2022—Tucker Trimmer tool
