Studio 180 Academy – 2017

Studio 180 Academy is being held at White Eagle Conference Center in beautiful Hamilton, NY this September 20th – 23rd, 2017.  This is an opportunity to spend time with Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors having fun and learning to use your Studio 180 Design tools.  There are teaching teams for each of the 15 quilt classes being offered.

I (Jackie O’Brien) and Sue Graf will be team teaching 3 quilts:


Class#106 – Sea Glass.  This quilt arranges diamond shapes in a unique way that reminds us of the glass shards found on the shore. Requires the Diamond Rects tool.

NN King

Class #205 – Northern Neighbours.  Features intricate maple leaves and Flying Geese, this celebrates our Northern Neighbours.  Requires the Corner Beam, Wing Clipper I & Split Rects tools.

Diamonds in the Sky

Class #305 – Diamonds in the Sky.  This is a Modern 180 Design by Michelle Hiatt. Requires the Corner Beam tool.

These are only 3 of the 15 classes being offered.  There is still time to sign up and join us for 4 fabulous days together.  If you are local you may also sign up as a Day Tripper.  Deb Tucker will be our keynote speaker for this event.  Check out the website for class offerings and registration www.studio180academy.com

It will be beautiful this fall, so spend some time with us.



Studio 180 Academy

A week ago it was cold here Central NY.  This week summer has arrived in full force.  I don’t know where the time has gone.  I have been busy pulling up carpet and embroidering signs for the corners of vendor booths.


These double sided signs are the size that would fit on small garden flag holders. When you hang them on the corners of your booth it helps customers find your booth when they look down the long, busy isles.

Tuck just popped down to Tuckerville to see what I was up to.


She is so much fun. Tucker is a little over 4 months old and is a spit fire, she is running the joint.  She is keeping the Doxies on their toes!

News, News, News:


I’m so excited the Certified Instructors from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design will be hosting a 3-day Academy from September 20, 2017 through September 24, 2017 at the White Eagle Banquet and Conference Center in Hamilton, New York. Save the dates in your calendar now.

All the lodging and meals are on site. Attendees can reserve their lodging and meals at the same time as they pick their classes. Attendees will have the opportunity to take 3 full-day classes from Certified Instructors. There is no better way to master as many Studio 180 Design tools and techniques as you desire than from direct instruction from those that have been trained by Deb Tucker herself.
