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.

Studio 180 Academy

S180 Academy Invitation

I thrilled to be teaching at this event!  Please go to www.studio180academy.com and check out the great teachers and classes being offered.


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.
