Get your Studio 180 Design Fix 2 Ways!

Tucker University.  I’m getting ready to use this great program at the end of the month at Stash Away Quilt Shop in Rome, NY.  Tucker University was created based on the product line offered by Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design (S180) tools and Technique Sheets.  Deb Tucker and her team continue to introduce news tools as well as techniques to expand the use of the tools.

The Tucker University curriculum was written with the busy shop owner and/or S180 Certified Instructors (CI) in mind.  This curriculum allows the shop owner or S180 CI to use a pre-designed lesson plan to offer technique building classes to their customers.  The lesson plans and student handouts have been prepared for the instructor and are ready for use.  The preparation time is now minimal.

These lesson plans allows the student to learn to use the tool without having to make an entire quilt.  In the first lesson “Tucker Trimmer I & Shaded Four Patch” students will make half square triangles and  2 & 3 color combination Units.

Students will also learn to make 2, 3, & 4 color Quarter Square Triangles.

Last but not least, student will also learn to make the Shaded Four Patch Unit.

With the Tucker Trimmer alone, a quilter has 33 opportunities to create precise units.  These units are often referred to as basic units, therefore they must be precise to fit nicely with more advanced units.
